Treatments & Procedures

Your gum line is more important than just having a great smile. It can also be an indicator of the health of your gums. If your gum line is receding it might be telling you that you bit off more than you bargained for. Also...

Dentures have a bad rap, but can be a great solution for people who are losing or have lost their teeth but can’t afford expensive implants. There are several types of dentures suitable for different situations. Fortunately, these chattering teeth are not one of the options!

The Olympic Games are rapidly approaching and athletes everywhere will want to make sure their smile is camera ready. A very popular dental treatment option for athletes that have lost teeth due to inadvertent contact, are dental implants. In layman’s terms, dental implants are essentially replacement tooth roots, providing a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth made to match your natural teeth. Since they are designed to fuse with the surrounding bone, your implants can last a lifetime, making them more economical then bridges or dentures in the long run.

Ahhhh, the famous quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Ok, it’s not the exact quote, but you get the point. When should I get my wisdom teeth removed, if at all, you ask? Since everyone is a little different, it is always best to let your dentist make that call. However, since this can be a somewhat intimidating procedure, let’s take a look at what you can do to be informed and prepared.

In 1965, a Swedish physician Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark revolutionized the dental field by placing a titanium implant in the jawbone of one of his patients. He recognized the problems associated with wearing dentures; and the resulting success and reliability of implants has changed dentistry forever. We now have the ability to replace missing teeth without a removable appliance, and without shaving other teeth down to fabricate a bridge.
