Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, tend to emerge in late adolescence or early adulthood. Due to factors like insufficient space in the jaw, however, the teeth can become impacted or grow at an angle, causing discomfort and oral health issues. To prevent these problems, wisdom teeth removal is often recommended. During this procedure, your dentist will likely administer anesthesia to help you remain comfortable. They will then make a small incision in the gum tissue if necessary, remove your wisdom teeth, and close the incisions with dissolvable stitches. Following the procedure, proper aftercare instructions will be provided to promote healing and minimize any post-operative discomfort.
Many people struggle with some form of dental anxiety, from feeling apprehensive before an appointment to an outright fear of going to the dentist. With customized sedation dentistry techniques, patients can now receive the treatment they need with more comfort and less anxiety than ever before. “Sleep” dentistry can help patients feel more relaxed during their visit with the amount of sedation customized for their unique levels of anxiety. Our sedation dentistry options are considered safe and effective, offering patients the ability to stay alert and conscious while feeling at ease during their treatment. This option offers several advantages for patients, including the ability to undergo lengthy or complex procedures without discomfort or fear. It also allows our dental professionals to work more efficiently.
TMJ disorder (TMD) affects the temporomandibular joint, which connects the jawbone to the skull. Those suffering from this condition may have pain and dysfunction in their jaw and surrounding muscles, which can limit their ability to chew and speak. Common symptoms of TMJ disorder include jaw pain, clicking or popping sounds, headaches, facial pain, earaches, and difficulty opening or closing the mouth. The exact causes of TMJ disorder can vary and may include factors such as jaw misalignment, teeth grinding (bruxism), arthritis, stress, or injury to the jaw joint. Our team offers TMJ treatments tailored to the unique cause of your condition and may include mouthguards, orthodontics, or another solution.

We encourage you to schedule regular oral screenings to protect the health of your mouth long-term.
