Expert in these areas

If you find suspicious tissue in your mouth, on the inside of your cheeks, or on your lips or tongue, don’t hesitate to come in for examination and biopsy. A biopsy can catch oral pathology such as cancer so you can start treatment before it becomes a serious issue.

Hybrid Dentures
If you are looking for dentures that don’t slip around in your mouth or cause you to slur your words, consider hybrid dentures. This style of denture is securely attached to dental implants to provide a sturdy and worry-free foundation.

Full Mouth Extractions
There are times when gum disease or severe decay has caused too many problems in your mouth. In cases like these, it is often best to opt for full mouth extractions. Once your decayed teeth are removed, you can move forward with a prosthetic replacement such as dentures.

Expose Teeth
Sometimes a molar or a canine tooth has no room to grow in and becomes impacted in the bone socket. This can lead to a variety of dental issues such as TMJ, infection, and severe pain. A teeth exposure procedure allows your surgeon to uncover the impacted tooth and either remove it or begin the process of orthodontic care.
Bone Grafting
If you're interested in dental implants or hybrid dentures, but your jawbone doesn’t have enough density to hold them in place. Don’t worry, the team offers simple bone grafting procedures to return your jawbone to full strength.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth, also known as your third molars, often don’t have enough room to fully emerge. And when they do emerge they can push your other teeth out of alignment. Often times, it’s best to have them removed to avoid serious dental complications.
Dental Implants
If you are one of the millions of Americans missing a tooth, you have options for replacement. Consider dental implants. These sturdy artificial tooth roots serve as a permanent base or dental crowns or even dentures.
