Dental implants are a strong, predictable alternative to traditional tooth replacement options like bridges, partials, and dentures. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor attached to the jawbone. Implants can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures to eliminate slipping. By imitating an entire natural tooth, from the root up, dental implants offer a prosthetic that closely mimics nature. Dental implant patients experience restored function and the ability to enjoy even hard-to-chew foods. Speech may also improve.
We routinely recommend the removal of wisdom teeth for most patients and are happy to provide this service in our clinics. A number of problems can result if the wisdom teeth are not removed, including cavities leading to an abscess, infection of the gums, and severe pain or discomfort.
