Straight teeth, while attractive, contribute to good oral health. Orthodontics is the dental science of repositioning teeth into a proper bite. We do this with braces, retainers, spacers, clear aligners, and other mechanisms. Many people relate metal braces with adolescence. However, children as well as adults can benefit from orthodontic treatment.
The most common disease in the United States is not what you may think. Heart disease, stroke, or cancer come to mind, but actually gum disease is the single most prevalent disease in America. In fact, it affects more people than heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's, and cancer combined. About 80% of the population has some form of gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, periodontitis (advanced), and gingivitis (mild).
Our board-certified oral surgeon is trained to perform an array of oral surgeries so that you can receive the majority of your dental care in our office, where you feel comfortable, cared for, and familiar. These may include extractions of dead teeth, wisdom teeth extractions, soft- and hard-tissue grafts, and dental implant placement.
