  • Dental Implants

    Dental Implants

    Dental implants can be a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth. The titanium implant undergoes osseointegration with the existing jaw bone to act as a new tooth root and provides a strong foundation for a crown or dental prosthetic. Dental implants function like natural teeth and blend in for a seamless smile. Plus, filling in gaps can keep remaining teeth from shifting out of place and maintain appropriate facial balance.

  • All-On-4

    All-On-4

    All-On-4® dental implants are an effective way of replacing a full arch of teeth without placing each tooth separately. They can also be a more comfortable alternative to dentures because the prosthesis (denture) is fixed in place using the implants and is not removable. The entire arch is held by four or more strategically placed dental implants – two in the front and two in the back.

  • Immediate Implant Placement

    Immediate Implant Placement

    Inserting an implant into the tooth socket immediately following extraction may enhance recovery and reduce the risk of complications in certain circumstances. It takes advantage of the wonderful healing potential of an extraction site (tooth socket) and allows the bone and dental implant to begin fusing as the site heals. Immediate implant placement can also decrease the number of procedures necessary for the dental restoration process, prevent bone loss, and improve aesthetics during recovery.

  • Wisdom Teeth Removal

    Wisdom Teeth Removal

    Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that develop at the very back of the jaw. Oftentimes there is no room for these teeth, and they can become impacted or crowd other teeth. Wisdom teeth removal addresses these issues and can help prevent future complications. It is an incredibly common procedure.

Other Procedures:

  • Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

    Pre-Prosthetic Surgery

    If you are preparing for dentures, a bridge, or a partial, pre-prosthetic surgery may be necessary to prepare the area and allow for a better fit. The surgeon will shape the tissue and bone accordingly by adding or removing volume to create a smooth, properly contoured surface and solid foundation for the prosthetic. This can also promote greater comfort and function.

  • Tooth Extractions

    Tooth Extractions

    Whether a tooth is coming in crooked, blocking other teeth, is cracked or damaged, or is infected, those can all be reasons why tooth extraction may be necessary. Once the tooth is removed, problems can be resolved, and a replacement tooth can be inserted to fill any gaps.

  • Bone Grafting

    Bone Grafting

    Bone grafting is a procedure used by our doctors to restore or rebuild bone mass in the jaw. This bone mass is lost over time as existing bone begins to resorb and disappear in areas with missing teeth or gum disease. A bone graft helps stimulate new bone growth and adds strength to the area to prepare for other procedures such as dental implants.
