Implants 

The best way to replace missing tooth/teeth is through dental implants. They are guaranteed for life; dental implants are resistant to damage and can outlast natural teeth. 

Dental Implants
Dental Implants

Dental Implants are usually made of titanium, a metal that is long lasting, durable, and bio-compatible, and serves as the “root” device on which a final restoration, such as a crown, bridge, denture, or partial denture, is built upon. The flexibility of dental implants as a platform allows for future modification or restoration as needed. It is very rare that extensive surgery is needed as the majority of the placements are done fast and comfortably.

Mini Implants
Mini Implants

For patients with bone structure that isn’t compatible with standard sized implants, Mini Implants offer an affordable, attractive, and reliable alternative for the enhancement of retention for removable prosthetic, such as partial dentures and complete dentures. Placement of the Mini Implants is a minimally invasive procedure and the results can be seen within a short amount of time.

Surgical Guide
Surgical Guide

Surgical guides are best recommended for cases where dental implant placement carries with it some risk due to an imminently prominent nerve or other questionable landmark native to your dentition or near the site of a proposed implant’s placement. Removing the guesswork from Implant surgeries, Surgical Guides are made using the latest 3-D scanning technology to ensure ideal placement of dental implants to minimize both risk and implant failure rates.

Bone grafting is a relatively non-invasive procedure where additional bone material is placed into an area that needs it. In the absence of teeth, resorption will occur where the body breaks down the bone and this takes a toll on the robustness of the bone and can affect aesthetics and functions. The bone graft is to preserve the remaining bone structure. The healing process is generally very fast. The bone graft will be integrated in a few months.

Sinus Lift and Augmentation

Your sinuses are hollow opening in your skull that are part of your natural anatomy. The sinuses' location in relation to your jaw and implants site must be taken into consideration. When doing implants, there might not be enough bone material so it would go into the sinus cavity. In order to prevent this, the sinus membrane must be lifted away so additional bone material can be placed underneath. It is to provide a stable foundation and becomes integrated in a few months.

Rotten teeth that are causing pain is just one example. An extraction is virtually pain free and local anesthetic is generally applied. You can return to most things the day after but limit physical activities and diet if applicable.

Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom Tooth Extractions

The wisdom teeth are your third set of molars at the very back of the mouth. These teeth generally grow in ways where they affect other parts of the mouth negatively. When they come in as impact teeth, they grow into another teeth instead of outward. This potentially causes problem that range from pain to the decay of the adjacent teeth. However if they come in properly and cause no harm, removing them is not necessary.

Temporary Partial Dentures
Temporary Partial Dentures

For patients who had their anterior/front teeth extracted, a temporary partial denture (flipper) provides an aesthetic option during the healing process. The gum will heal after an extraction and will change its shape. To guarantee a proper fit for prosthetic, the gum must be allowed to heal. During that time, the temporary partial will provide a natural look.
