Impacted wisdom teeth
Wisdom teeth can become impacted, cause orthodontic problems, infection, pain or ulcers and require extraction.
Impacted, displaced or crowded teeth
Canine teeth or other teeth may be impacted and require exposure and orthodontic treatment to help align them. Some badly displaced or crowded teeth may require removal.
An implant that is placed into the upper or lower jaw provides a base to attach an artificial tooth (crown or bridge) or a dental prosthesis.
Bone grafts for dental implants
If an implant needs more bone to hold onto, a bone graft may be necessary. This bone is usually taken from another part of the jaw or hip. Sometimes artificial bone is used.
Sinus Augmentation/Sinus Lift
A sinus lift is surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or “lifted.”
