Our experience has always been that patients are very happy with how painless the procedure is.
Do I need to be put under to have my wisdom teeth out?
Absolutely not. We routinely take out impacted wisdom teeth with freezing only. Our patients are well frozen and do not feel pain throughout the procedure.
What are implants?
An implant is used to replace a missing tooth. It looks and functions just like a natural tooth. Implant surgery to replace a missing tooth is often very straightforward and causes minimal discomfort and healing is very rapid.
Implants are the most successful treatment available in dentistry today and provide a permanent solution for replacement of a missing tooth or teeth. In appropriate cases the benefits of implant treatment are far reaching. Beyond looking and functioning just like a natural tooth, implants maintain the bone around them that would otherwise be lost in the absence of a tooth.
Does your office do implants?
Yes. We review and carefully evaluate each patients needs, desires, and overall oral health and when appropriate our office will provide implant treatment from start to finish.
