Dental Implants

Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function very much like natural teeth. For the person who has lost teeth, they offer the chance to regain the ability to eat normally with teeth that appear as natural as possible.

Dental Implants Presentation

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Removal of wisdom teeth is advisable when they do not have adequate space to erupt properly into the mouth and have healthy surrounding gum tissue. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone (impaction). Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to erupt successfully.
