Replacement of teeth using dental implants to provide a foundation for rebuilding damaged or missing teeth. Dental implants provide a strong, durable, predictable method for restoring chewing ability, comfort and appearance. We offer several implant systems and can discuss the various options for incorporating them into your primary dental treatment plan.
Wisdom teeth frequently need to be removed due to crowding, trouble cleaning, associated pathology, pain or infection. Generally mid- to late- teen years is ideal time for wisdom teeth removal. At this time root development and tooth position may make surgery and subsequent healing easier.
Also known as corrective jaw surgery. Usually performed in consultation with your orthodontist and other health care providers, these procedures to move the upper jaw, lower jaw, chin or other portions of the facial skeleton require through evaluation and planning. Frequently 12 to 18 months of orthodontic treatment is performed before surgery. Surgery is usually performed in the hospital setting. After six weeks of healing, orthodontic treatment is then resumed to refine tooth alignment. Communication and coordination of care with your orthodontist and primary dentist are essential during this treatment. In most cases primary dental care should continue without interruption to maintain your overall dental health.
Surgical procedures may be best performed with oral sedation, nitrous oxide sedation, IV sedation or general anesthesia. Patients are individually assessed for the best treatment option. All sedated patients are monitored with oximetry, blood pressure, pulse, EKG, CO2 and dedicated anesthesia staff. All our staff are trained in anesthesia and emergency procedures.
