Full Arch Dental Implants
Patients who have failing teeth or are missing an entire arch of teeth can replace them with full arch dental implants. Strategically placed into your jaw, dental implants firmly hold a full arch prosthesis in place. Patients can expect a natural look and function to their brand-new smile with full arch dental implants.
A common oral surgery for our team, wisdom teeth often require extraction before they can damage surrounding teeth and jaw structure. Using advanced sedation techniques, our oral surgeons are skilled at removing wisdom teeth to restore health to the jaw.
After tooth loss or trauma to the face, the bone in the jaw may begin to deteriorate and become thinner. This creates challenges when placing dental implants and in preserving your remaining natural teeth. We offer advanced bone grafting techniques to restore health to your jaw in a timely and gentle manner.
