Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
All-on-4® provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis in one day when they either have no teeth, or their remaining teeth are not fixable.
Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies or is reabsorbed. This often results in poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants.
The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth, as they may remain trapped beneath the gum and bone.
Teeth may need to be removed for a number of reasons, usually due to extensive decay, gum disease, or trauma resulting in painful, abscessed and/or loose teeth.
The maxillary cuspid (upper tooth) is the second most common tooth to become impacted. The cuspid tooth is a critical tooth in the dental arch and plays an important role in your bite.
The science and art of treating facial injuries requires special training involving a hands-on experience and an understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patients long term function and appearance.
Corrective jaw surgery is needed when jaws don’t meet correctly and/or teeth don’t seem to fit with jaws. This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly.
The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process, such as oral cancer.
