- Dental Implants
Dental Implants are the preferred choice of permanent replacement for missing teeth. Dental Implant placement is done as a simple surgical procedure right in our office. A titanium screw is surgically placed into the jawbone. During the healing phase, the implant fuses with the bone and becomes permanent. After the healing process is complete, a post attachment is connected to the implant and a crown is placed over the post. Dental Implants give you back the freedom to eat foods that you used to avoid like corn on the cob, nuts and steak. Imagine biting into an apple without having to cut it up into small, bite size pieces. Once again you can smile, laugh and speak with complete confidence.
For those who wear dentures or partials and have a minimal amount jawbone, there is no need to worry about dentures slipping out of place. There will be no need for messy, gooey denture adhesive. The dentures are held securely in place by the implants and you can eat, talk and function like normal without worry. Because the dentures will be secured to the implants and will no longer move around , there would be no gum irritation and pain that you experienced in the past.

- Dental Crowns
Dental crowns, are dental restorations that encase a tooth This procedure is rebuild broken or decayed teeth, strengthen teeth, or improve the cosmetic appearance of a tooth. Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Crowns can be made out of porcelain metal (a gold or other metal alloy), or a combination of both. Other terms that are used to refer to dental crowns are "dental caps" and "tooth caps."
- Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom tooth extractions are usually done in a single visit. The mouth is numbed completely before the procedure to minimize any discomfort. Stitches are usually placed to allow quicker, thorough healing. Tooth Extraction of wisdom teeth is usually necessary when the jaw is not large enough to accommodate them so that they become impacted (do not erupt or only partially erupt.) Sometimes wisdom teeth grow in sideways or stay trapped in the gum and bone. This can allow bacteria to travel inside the gums and cause an infection or a cyst to develop and grow. The infection and cyst can in turn damage and destroy the jawbone. If the teeth come in poorly positioned or not in alignment with the other teeth, they can damage the adjacent teeth and will need to be removed. Put Yourself In Our Expert Hands...
