Our selection of oral surgery procedures includes:
- Facial trauma (dental injuries)
- Jaw surgery
- Dental implant placement
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- Treatment for obstructive sleep apnea
- TMJ treatment
- Cleft lip and palate repair
- Apicoectomy (endodontic microsurgery)
- Reconstruction following cancer surgery or trauma
- Diagnosis and treatment of cysts and/or tumors
Because your comfort and safety are paramount when you are in our chair, we are happy to offer a variety of anesthesia and sedation options, including local, general, and IV sedation.
Your Trusted Dental Implants Experts
Dental implants have rapidly become the most widely preferred restorative dentistry solution to missing teeth, allowing edentulous men and women to enjoy the innumerable benefits of a full smile and a strong bite. Because a dental implant replaces the entire root structure of a missing tooth, it effectively stimulates the bone in the jaw and prevents it from atrophying over time. This means that any remaining healthy teeth are less likely to be compromised.
Dental implants are an incredibly versatile tooth replacement option. They can be used to secure a single crown, a custom bridge, or dentures. The results are unparalleled chewing ability, clearer speech, improved comfort, and a smile that looks completely natural.
