Procedures We Offer:
Dental implants : Ideal for patients who suffer from oral hygiene conditions such as tooth decay or periodontal disease, dental implants are both tooth replacements and alternatives to dentures. Since dental implants are custom tailored to each patient and are naturally colored, you can go about you daily activities with no additional stress or maintenance.
Bone grafting : If patients suffer from missing teeth, the jawbone will eventually atrophy or simply be reabsorbed, leading to lack of bone quality. Such patients cannot sustain dental implants, but we can now regrow bone through major or minor bone grafting. Through guided bone or tissue regeneration, we can encourage bone regeneration from a tissue bank or with your own bone.
Wisdom teeth removal : Wisdom teeth are the final teeth to erupt in the back of the mouth, often during the late teens. In the event they are misaligned or only partially erupt, they will need to be removed. Impacted teeth can lead to an overabundance of bacteria and a host of other symptoms. We remove wisdom teeth after a thorough oral examination and with minimal pain and discomfort.
Impacted tooth surgery: Improperly erupting teeth can many dental issues. While common with wisdom teeth, other teeth can also be impacted. Regular dental checkups reveal these signs early for successful treatment, which can range from braces to extracting all remaining baby teeth so the eruption path is clear.
Facial trauma : In the event of facial trauma, our team has the expertise to treat facial injuries such as intra-oral lacerations and fractured jaws, ensuring maximal recovery. No matter the extent of bone or soft tissue injuries in the event of maxillofacial trauma, our team will do their best to ensure total recovery.
Platelet rich plasma treatment: PRP is a blood byproduct rich in platelets, and while previously used almost exclusively in hospital settings due to the inhibiting cost, we can now efficiently harvest larger numbers. This is a revolutionary advancement, as PRP accelerates the healing pathways in the body, and is extremely useful for bone grafting in dental implants, as well as repairing bone defects and fistulas. PRP is entirely safe to use because it is a byproduct from the same patient, nullifying the risk of disease transmission.
BOTOXÂ®: As patients age, the signs of aging become more prominent, often pronounced by prolonged exposure to the sun. BOTOXÂ® Cosmetic treats expression lines and leads to dramatic results around the eyes.
