Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth usually between the ages of 16 and 22. When they align properly and the gum tissue is healthy, Wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary 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. Find out more about wisdom teeth removal.
Missing teeth over a period of time can cause your jaw bone to atrophy, or shrink. This often results in poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants as well as long term shifting of remaining teeth and changes to the facial structure. Most patients, in these situations, are not candidates for dental implants. Fortunately, with bone grafting, we have the ability to grow bone where it is needed.
