Convenient Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Wisdom teeth are the last to erupt and can sometimes cause pain or damage other teeth. Wisdom teeth can grow sideways, cause overcrowding for your teeth, or become impacted if they remain stuck beneath the gum and jawbone.

Because of their proximity to nerves in the jaw and sinuses, complications with your wisdom teeth can lead to significant pain and possible infection.

Dental Implants

Dentists use dental implants to repair teeth damaged by decay, disease, or injury. The implants provide foundations for replacement teeth feel, and work like natural teeth. Implants allow you to eat what you like and confidently share your smile.
