Our maxillofacial surgeons manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. The full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery is practiced here, with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery, cancer surgery, reconstructive surgery and facial cosmetic surgery. This also includes special techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures. [more]
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, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.
The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
