A dental implant is a titanium post that functions as the root of a tooth would. It is surgically implanted into your jawbone beneath the gum line so that a replacement tooth can be screwed on top. Dental implants are designed to be used as replacements for a single tooth or even a full set of teeth.
When a tooth is too badly decayed to save, our doctors may decide to perform an extraction. An extraction may also be recommended if the tooth is severely fractured or is crowding other healthy teeth. If you are facing an extraction, our team will discuss and offer tooth replacement options, such as dentures or dental implants.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Not all wisdom teeth need to be extracted, but if your wisdom teeth are impacted and are crowding your teeth, or if gum disease is present, you may be a candidate for wisdom tooth surgery. In many situations, it’s best to pull the wisdom teeth before they jeopardize your smile as a whole. At the earliest, wisdom teeth are removed in the mid-teen years, but third molars do not finish developing until closer to about 30 years of age, so the timing for this procedure varies.
We will take imaging of your entire jaw, so we can see the size, location, and developmental trajectory of the wisdom teeth in consideration and determine if removal is necessary.
At Advanced Dentistry, we perform all levels of wisdom tooth procedures, from routine extractions to complex, impacted extractions.
“Tongue Tie” is a condition where the tissue on the underside of the tongue that connects to the floor of their mouth is too short, limiting the tongue’s range of motion. In adults, it can cause discomfort and problems with speech. Treatment for this condition is relatively simple, and early intervention is key!
