Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum, and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone.
Corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) is needed when jaws don't meet correctly and/or teeth don't fit with jaws. Corrective jaw surgery repositions misaligned jaws improving facial appearance and ensuring that teeth meet correctly and function properly. People who can benefit from orthognatic surgery include those with an improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly.
