DENTAL IMPLANT

Dental implants are today’s replacement method. Consisting of the same basic parts as a natural tooth which consist of a root and a crown. The implant anchors the new tooth to the jaw, providing stability under the gums while the crown is the part above the gum line.

WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL

If you do not have enough room in your mouth for your third molars to fully erupt, a number of problems can happen. Impacted wisdom teeth should be removes before their root structure is fully developed. In some patients it can be as early as 12 or 13, and in others it may not be until the early twenties. Problems tend to occur with increasing frequency after the age of 30.
