Dental implants are an alternative for missing teeth to provide stability for new or existing dentures.

The recovery is similar to that of a tooth extraction with normal eating patterns returning within a week.
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.
