Dental implants are important because they restore your smile’s appearance and help the bones, tissue, and roots of a tooth. Usually made of titanium, dental implants are used to fix missing teeth and repair teeth roots. Each implant is specially made for each patient and your unique needs.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth can cause many problems such as overcrowding, jaw pain, and even migraines. In order to extract wisdom teeth, small incisions are made in the gums. Sometimes, stitches may be needed to close the area where the wisdom tooth was removed.

An impacted tooth can interfere with other teeth, causing tooth decay and gum disease if not cared for appropriately. There are many types of impacted teeth such as vertical and mesial. When a tooth is vertically impacted, it is positioned normally but doesn’t pass through the gum tissue. Mesial teeth are the most common impacted teeth, positioned forward in the gum line. In any case, our dentists will properly evaluate your situation and decide the treatment that is best for you.
Usually when a tooth is missing or removed, the bone structure is no longer strong. During the bone gaffing procedure, our expert dentists will rebuild the bone and restore it back to a healthy state. After the bone’s structure is reconstructed, a dental implant can then be added to complete your smile again.
