Dental implants have become the accepted standard of care after a patient loses a natural tooth. They are the ideal solution for not only replacing missing teeth but they also act to preserve bone and restore your smile. We would love to offer you a free implant consult. You owe it to yourself to find out how dental implants can improve the quality of your life. Please call our office today to schedule. Learn more about Dental Implants
Wisdom teeth need to be extracted when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum, and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Impacted wisdom teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to successfully erupt. Learn more about wisdom tooth removal.
