 Dental Implants

Dental Implants are changing the way people live. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation as replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

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. Wisdom teeth removal is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. Wisdom teeth may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum, and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to successfully erupt.
Tooth Extraction Process

The plan for any tooth extraction is to take the root portion of a tooth that is firmly encased in bone (its socket) by use of a special forcep.  When a tooth is un-able to emerge through the bone it is considered “impacted”.  This will most likely require a surgical tooth extraction. In this case we remove the bone covering the tooth to remove it.

Bone Grafts and Sinus Involvement

Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies, or is reabsorbed. This can leave a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for placement of dental implants.

Today, we have the ability help you to grow more bone where needed. This not only gives us the opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, We can attempt to restore functionality and aesthetic appearance. 

Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic Surgery is needed when the jaw doesn’t meet correctly and/or teeth don’t seem to bite down correctly. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and a corrective jaw surgery repositions the misaligned jaw. This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly. 

Oral Pathology

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process.  When a biopsy is taken we can help you determine the cause of the symptoms. The most dangerous of these being a cancerous growth. 

Botox Injections

In small, medical doses, this bacterium blocks the release of a chemical known as acetylcholine, virtually blocking electrical messages sent by the brain to the muscles to contract and move. Because these messages are blocked, there is less of a chance of developing fine lines and wrinkles. 

Mole Removal

Dr. Anderson uses radiofrequency to remove moles which minimizes scaring and can be done under a local anesthetic. If the mole looks suspicious we will send it to a pathologist.
