Dental implants are an alternative for missing teeth to provide stability for new or existing dentures. Performed by a dentist with a surgical background, the process of a dental implant varies based on the dentist and type of implant. The recovery is similar to that of a tooth extraction with normal eating patterns returning within a week.
Disease Detection and Treatment
Our dentist is highly trained in detecting oral cancer, where the signs can often go unnoticed. If something suspicious is discovered in your mouth, face, jaw, or neck area, a biopsy may be performed for further diagnosis. You may be referred for the biopsy or it may be performed by your general dentist. Oral surgery is often used as a form of treatment for oral cancer.
