With the All-on-4™, you can enjoy a full arch of teeth and the look and feel of natural teeth in just one day.
If you suffer from severe bone loss in the upper jaw due to periodontal disease, tooth loss or any other reason, you may not have sufficient bone to place a traditional implant. However, you may be eligible for a zygomatic implant. This procedure involves placing a bridge onto the implants immediately in one simple stage. Schedule a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for a zygomatic implant and restore your oral health and confidence.
The majority of Americans have their wisdom teeth removed at some point in their lives. When left untreated, wisdom teeth can cause infection, illness, and disruption of proper teeth alignment. An oral examination and X-rays can quickly determine if the procedure is necessary. Removing troublesome wisdom teeth can restore your dental health to normal.
Teeth can be compromised by disease, decay, trauma, and certain medications. Thus, tooth extraction becomes necessary to remove the damaged teeth to preserve your overall oral health. Extraction of damaged teeth can directly affect your facial appearance, and you can address these issues with a restorative dentistry procedure.
Also known as eyeteeth, canine teeth are the first teeth to come in contact with food and they guide your teeth into a proper bite. The upper canine teeth are the last of the permanent front teeth to erupt into place, but they can become stuck, and disrupt your dental arch. An oral examination and X-rays can determine if you have impacted canine teeth as well as the reason why.
Dental implants, an alternate solution to traditional dentures, provide a fully functional and natural-looking option. Living with an incomplete set of teeth has serious consequences to your appearance and overall oral health. For example, the teeth nearby your missing tooth can rotate and affect your bite, in turn straining jaw joins and causing pain and locking. Also, the tooth above or below a missing tooth can come-in more and expose its roots, possibly resulting in root decay, sensitive teeth, or surrounding gum problems. In one or two appointments, you can receive dental implants to fully restore your smile.
Bone grafting is a procedure that builds up bone mass in areas of weakness from previous extraction, injury, or gum disease. Restoring the strength and function of your jawbone becomes imperative to preparing for a dental implant. Our conservative approach to replacing bone in the jaw does not require harvesting bone from elsewhere in the body. After successful bone grafts and dental implants, you can enjoy your improved oral health, smile, and confidence.
Oral or facial disorder or disease such as tumors, cysts, and lesions may be warning signs of pathology as serious as cancer. Because oral health is a good indicator of general health, any changes in the appearance or texture of your gums and inner lining of your mouth should be noted. If you suffer from a chronic sore throat, a sore that does not heal properly, or difficulty swallowing, schedule for a consultation with our specialists. Painless biopsies can detect cancer and other issues to prevent further debilitation.
