Our Services

Dental Implants
Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. In this procedure, titanium supports are surgically fused with your jawbone, and act as an anchor for naturally looking false teeth. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth as an alternative to dentures. 

Advantages of dental implants

  • Implants are extremely natural looking
  • Fusion of the implants into your jaw make them very stable and comfortable compared to traditional dentures
  • They last a lifetime


Types of implants
Root form implant: This is the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth.

  • Plate Form Implant:A plate form implant has a flat and long shape and is better suited for a narrow jawbone.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The average adult has thirty-two teeth by age eighteen, sixteen teeth on the top and sixteen teeth on the bottom. Each tooth in the mouth has a specific design and function. The teeth in the front of the mouth (incisors, canine and bicuspid teeth) are ideal for grasping and biting food into smaller pieces while the back, or molar teeth, are used to grind food into a consistency suitable for swallowing.

The average mouth, however, is only large enough to hold 28 teeth. It can be painful when 32 teeth try to fit in a mouth that has room for only 28 teeth. The third molars, or wisdom teeth, are the last to form.  Since there is not enough space for these teeth, they will often cause pressure and pain when they begin to erupt.  Unfortunately, the only way to treat the lack of space in the mouth for these teeth, is to remove them.
Normally, all four wisdom teeth are removed at the same time to avoid multiple visits for removal of each of the teeth.  Often the procedure is done under general anesthesia, where the patient is asleep.
Single Tooth Extraction
Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration.  Extraction of teeth that are not impacted and are fully erupted are considered simple surgical extractions.  Any dentist can perform a tooth extraction, however an oral surgeon is specialized in extraction of teeth.
Extractions can be done under local or general anesthesia.  The average healing time after an extraction is about 3 to 5 days, however, some may take up to 2 weeks.
Sedation Dentistry
Don’t let fear prevent you from seeking the dental care you need. Our team is specially trained in the use of Oral Conscious Sedation, which helps patients feel at ease during a dental appointment. Sedation dentistry may be recommended to help reduce a child’s or adult’s anxiety, and will leave them with no memory of the visit.

Please be aware that you will need someone to drive you to and from any procedures that involve sedation dentistry.

Bone Graft
 A bone graft, or socket preservation graft, is a procedure where bone is added to a tooth socket in order to preserve the alveolar ridge.  After extraction, jaw bones have to be preserved to keep sockets in their original shape. Without socket preservation, the bone quickly resorbs. The jaw bone will never revert to its original shape once bone is lost and tissue contour has changed.
Often a bone graft is required prior to placement of dental implants.  If there is lack of sufficient bone in an area where an implant is required, a ridge augmentation procedure can be performed.  This procedure is used to bring back the lost bone after the bone has resorbed and there is insufficient ridge height or width.
Apicoectomy
An apicoectomy or apical surgery is when an incision is made in the gum tissue to expose the bone and surrounding inflamed tissue. The damaged tissue is removed along with the end of the root tip. A root-end filling is placed to prevent reinfection of the root and the gum is sutured. The bone naturally heals around the root over a period of months restoring full function.  At times, a bone grafting material has to be placed to aid in healing.
Following the procedure, there may be some discomfort or slight swelling while the incision heals. This is normal for any surgical procedure. To alleviate any discomfort, an appropriate pain medication will be recommended.

.

Sinus Lift
Loss of posterior teeth may result in excessive forces being placed on your remaining teeth.  Fortunately, the use of dental implants and crowns allow you to replace these missing teeth.  However, the position of the sinus in the upper posterior areas may be too low for proper placement of dental implants.
A simple procedure allows the sinus floor to be repositioned, creating enough space to properly place an implant.  Various grafting materials are used to encourage your bone to grow more quickly into the area, helping to stabilize the dental implant. Replace with your own bone in this area the grafting material as it grows into the area.
Under certain conditions, an even simpler procedure can be utilized.  When possible, the bone remaining under the sinus floor is gently pushed up, thus lifting the floor of the “dropped” sinus.  Bone replacement materials are then placed beneath this lifted bone.  Once again the bone materials are replaced as your body grow new bone into this area.
TMJ Treatment
TMJ or Temporomandibular Joint disorder is a disorder of the joint that allows the jaw to open and close.  This disorder often causes pain and pressure in the joint and surrounding areas like the ear or cheek.  It can also cause the joint to lock or pop.
Often, wisdom teeth can cause similar symptoms as TMJ disorder.  Extraction of the wisdom teeth is usually the first treatment for TMJ disorder.
Another treatment for TMJ disorder is a TMJ splint or night guard.  This is a device that is worn in the mouth, and decreases the pressure on the jaw joint.

Facial Cosmetics
Botox and Dermal Fillers

What Is BOTOX?

Botox (formally called Botulinum Toxin) is an extremely popular method for obtaining a more youthful, rested appearance. Botox is an FDA-approved treatment which can cause facial expression lines or wrinkles to essentially disappear. Areas most frequently treated are the glabellar area of frown lines (located between the eyes), crow’s feet (lateral areas of the eyes), and forehead wrinkles. Botox is diluted to a very controlled solution and, when injected into the muscles with a very thin needle, is almost painless. Botox injections produce a more youthful appearance by softening deep wrinkles.

What does treatment involve?

Treatment involves injecting small amounts of Botox into the tiny muscles responsible for the movements that create the lines and wrinkles. This relaxes the muscle, reducing the lines and wrinkles and producing smoother skin in the treated areas. The most common treatment areas include:

· Vertical lines between the eyes

· Forehead wrinkles

· Crow’s feet

What Can I Expect During the Procedure?

Patients may feel a slight burning sensation while the solution is being injected. The procedure takes about 15-20 minutes and the results last 3-5 months. With repeated treatments, the results may last longer. It requires a short appointment, and is appropriate for anyone (male and female) ages 18-65 meeting the clinical criteria for therapeutic or cosmetic use.

How is Botox used in Dentistry?

Botox has important clinical uses as an adjunct in TMJ and bruxism cases, and for patients with chronic TMJ and facial pain. Botox is also used to complement esthetic dentistry cases, as a minimally invasive alternative to surgically treating high lip line cases, denture patients who have trouble adjusting to new dentures, lip augmentation, and has uses in orthodontic cases where retraining of the facial muscles is necessary.

Can A Dentist Inject Botox?

YES – most dentists already have experience administerting anesthetic injections in the same areas where Botox and dermal fillers are injected for cosmetic results. The only difference is that you inject intraorally into these facial structures while Botox and dermal fillers injections are extraoral injections. Dentists inject anesthetic for a living and know how to make these injections comfortable, quick, and relatively painless for their patients.

Dentists receive training in dental school on the facial anatomy, physiology, skeletal structures, the vascular and nervous system of the face, and overall facial esthetics involved with this type of procedure.

Dentists are also keenly aware of the proper ratios of lips to teeth, the proper amount of teeth that should be visible in a full or partial smile, and how the teeth relate to the soft tissue surrounding the mouth.

While both Botox and dermal fillers are exciting additions to our services for patients, they are serious procedures which involve some risk and not every patient is an appropriate candidate.
