Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that the teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Early removal of Wisdom Teeth (third molars) can help prevent some of the complications associated with surgery. Dental crowding, shifting of teeth, periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, and other pathologic conditions, such as jaw cysts and tumors, can develop around impacted and erupting third molars. While there may be some cases when removal of the third molars is not indicated, most patients benefit from having the third molars removed during the teenage years.
