Removal of Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth are typically extracted to correct a specific oral problem or to prevent the development of oral problems in the future like crowding, swelling and more. Extractions can be done in our office by one of our experienced doctors. Local anesthesia will be applied to numb the area where the tooth will be removed. Once the tooth is removed, you may experience pain and bleeding. With time, this will subside. If it does not, please contact us immediately.

Dental Implants

Missing teeth can make it very hard to chew, place extra burdens on other teeth and negatively affect the overall appearance of your smile and facial structure. Dental implants are used to repair this empty space. Implants are placed in your jawbone as it will make sure that the implant is firmly secured in place. This procedure can help enhance your smile while also prevent other oral problems from developing.

Jaw Surgery

The purpose of jaw surgery is to correct functional problems that are caused by abnormalities of the facial bones, specifically the jaws and the teeth. Jaw surgery can help ease chronic jaw pains, fix facial appearance, and more. Depending on the severity of your jaw problem, you may need jaw surgery more than once. If you believe you are in need of jaw surgery, please feel free to contact us and get more information, or schedule your appointment with us!

TMJ/TMD Therapy

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and TMD (temporomandibular disorder) refer to problems associated with a jaw, joint muscles or bone disorders in the face. TMJ/TMD can cause chronic headaches, dizziness, facial and neck pain and others. Therapy for these disorders range from bite guards and physical therapy to surgical procedures and, depending on a person’s unique case. Contact us if you are in need of TMJ or TMD therapy.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is necessary if the bone adjacent to a tooth that is going to be extracted is damaged. Typically, this surgical procedure is done following the extraction of the tooth in order to preserve the tooth socket where a dental implant can be placed. A graft is placed in the socket and covered with a protective membrane.
