Trusted Oral Surgeon for Dental Implants
Dental implants are the ideal solution for the replacement of one or more missing teeth.
By simulating the structure and function of natural teeth, dental implants look and feel just like your own teeth. And, because you care for them in the same way as your natural teeth, they require no extra time or effort on your part.
The procedure for dental implants begins with inserting a small, titanium rod below the gum line, at the site of the missing tooth. The oral surgeon may recommend a small bone graft, to securely anchor the post in place. Then, a custom crown is attached to the post.
As a result, your bright, beautiful smile will be restored, allowing you to speak naturally and enjoy eating all of your favorite foods again. The titanium “root” will provide the necessary stimulus to the underlying bone too, so you will never need to worry about developing that sunken appearance that commonly occurs in patients who have lost teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Removal
The wisdom teeth, also known as the third molars, develop later than the rest of our adult teeth – typically during the late teens. Unfortunately, these teeth are prone to causing a variety of problems that can degrade your oral health.
Many patients experience impacted wisdom teeth, where the third molars may remain below the gum line or emerge only partially. Even if these teeth emerge fully, they are likely to crowd your mouth and harbor excessive bacteria. This can result in misaligned teeth, decay and periodontal disease.
By extracting the wisdom teeth as early as possible, you can spare yourself these complications. In fact, our oral surgeons recommend that we begin monitoring our younger patients’ third molars early, allowing time to schedule their wisdom teeth removal at a time that is convenient for your family.
