WISDOM TEETH REMOVAL

Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars to develop in the back of the mouth. They tend to cause problems because they're too large to grow in properly. Our doctors recommend early removal to avoid any issues.

FULL-ARCH RESTORATION

Full-arch restoration is an ideal procedure for replacing a full arch of missing or damaged teeth. With the help of dental implants, your doctor can place a fixed denture that is custom-designed to look just like your natural teeth.

BONE GRAFTING

Bone grafting rebuilds the bone structure in a patient’s jaw and provides a supportive foundation for dental implants. A bone graft is most often necessary for patients whose teeth have been missing for an extended period.

Orthognathic surgery is necessary to correct complex jaw misalignment that nonsurgical treatments, such as braces or mouth guards, cannot fix. Jaw surgery can also be performed to treat severe cases of TMJ disorders or sleep apnea.
