Throughout our careers, we have witnessed the incredibly positive impact that implant dentistry has had on the lives of our patients. As specialists who consult with many patients and dental professionals, we are concerned for patients about the many misleading claims and myths related to dental implant marketing and advertisement. We encourage patients to learn more about implant dentistry and the advantages of a surgical specialist providing your dental implant procedures. An excellent reference source for patients is a non-profit organization (Institute of Dental Implant Awareness) website called: missingteeth.org. To further educate patients, we established a serial seminar, in conjunction with restorative dentists, to debunk dental implant marketing myths and provide the “truth” and powerful positive experience about implant dentistry.
When you are ready to pursue implant dentistry, the most important step is choosing the Oral Surgeon who provides the expertise to address all your dental implant needs. Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is the American Dental Association's recognized surgical specialty of dentistry. As Board Certified surgeons, we have unique skills developed through extensive training which enables us to properly evaluate your needs using the latest technology, minimize your discomfort during implant procedures, and individually design your treatment in coordination with your dentist to achieve your goals. Every patient presents with their own individual oral health needs, general health conditions and anatomy. We work with our patients to design treatment that will provide the best long-term solution for their goals. We gain great satisfaction by helping our patients restore their smile and regain their confidence and ability to enjoy the foods you love.

Once you learn about dental implants, you finally realize there is a way to improve your life. When you lose several teeth – whether it's a new situation or something you have lived with for years – chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth.

Orthognathic surgery is needed when jaws don't meet correctly and/or teeth don't seem to fit with jaws. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and corrective jaw surgery repositions misaligned jaws. This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are trained, skilled and uniquely qualified to manage and treat Facial Trauma. Injuries to the face, by their very nature, impart a high degree of emotional, as well as physical trauma to patients. The science and art of treating these injuries requires special training involving a “hands-on” experience and an understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patient's long-term function and appearance.
