Dental Implants are changing the way people live. Implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. With Dental Implants, people regain the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Bone Grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. Bone Grafting strengthens and fortifies the jaw bone to provide a solid foundation for Dental Implants.
People who can benefit from Jaw Surgery include those with an improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly. Injury to the jaw and birth defects can also affect jaw alignment. Jaw Surgery may be required for the jaws when repositioning is necessary.
Wisdom Teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. Extraction may be necessary when Wisdom Teeth are prevented from properly erupting. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum, or remain trapped beneath the gum and bone.
