Dental implants are widely considered to be the best option for restoring one or more missing teeth. Dental implants restore the appearance of your smile, and they can function just like a natural tooth, allowing you to smile and enjoy your favorite foods without worry. With proper care, your dental implants can last a lifetime. Dental implants will also preserve your overall oral health by preventing jaw bone deterioration and preserving the shape of your mouth.
Our team loves seeing the positive results patients experience from dental implant placement. Our skilled oral surgeons are experts in dental implant placement. If you have one or more missing or failing teeth, one of our oral surgeons will review your dental situation and perform a thorough consultation to determine the best course of treatment. Whether your tooth is failing or you have been missing teeth for years, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Advances in bone restoration have made it possible to place dental implants even in cases of jawbone deterioration.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to grow into the mouth. Sometimes wisdom teeth can grow in without issue, but most dental professionals recommend early detection and extraction of wisdom teeth to avoid oral health complications like tooth crowding, pain, impaction, and even infection. Drs. Cooper, Teeples, Toponce, and Reddinger can examine your mouth and take scans to determine whether your wisdom teeth require removal. Your surgeon will form a personalized treatment plan to best suit your specific needs.
When you visit our state-of-the-art surgical office for wisdom teeth extraction, you will receive the highest quality care from our expert surgical team. Our oral surgeons have extensive surgical training and years of experience extracting wisdom teeth. Additionally, our surgical staff members are licensed in the proper administration of anesthesia to maximize your comfort during wisdom teeth removal.
Losing most or all of your teeth can make everyday tasks like eating and smiling extremely difficult. Fortunately, advances in dental implant technology allow us to provide a permanent upper or lower arch restoration solution. When you choose to replace your teeth through full-arch restoration, four or more dental implants will be placed in your jaw and act as anchors for your full set of brand new teeth. The dental implants will integrate with your jaw bone providing the most secure base for your replacement teeth possible. This allows you to enjoy your favorite foods, speak, and smile with ease. Your new replacement teeth will look just like natural teeth, and they require little additional care aside from regular dental hygiene.
If you are looking for the best long-term restoration solution for a full upper or lower arch of teeth, we encourage you to contact our office to schedule your first consultation. Many times, a temporary set of teeth can be secured in your mouth at the same time your dental implants are placed, providing you with an immediate new smile.
