Wisdom teeth (3rd molars) are usually poorly positioned impacted teeth that can cause substantial discomfort such as swelling, pain, stiffness or even changing the alignment of your teeth. Removal or the extraction of your wisdom teeth usually takes care of these issues.
If you have a cracked, infected or broken tooth we usually recommend trying to save the tooth (i.e. fillings, crowns, root canals). In the case when the tooth cannot be repaired then it will need to be extracted. With tooth extractions, treatment options are discussed for replacing the teeth (i.e. dental implants, partials, dentures).
Do you have dentures that are loose? Are you missing one or more teeth? Depending on your bone structure, dental implants may be an option if you answered yes to either of those questions. Dental implants are small titanium screws strategically placed to help stabilize dentures or replace missing teeth.

The National Institutes of Health indicates there are over 80 million Americans suffering from chronic headaches, migraines, TMD, tinnitus, and jaw/facial pain. It is estimated that over 80% of these symptoms could be improper dental forces or orofacial pain-related conditions and/or TMJ/D. We’ve been successfully treating these conditions for over 15 years.
Sleep apnea can affect anyone at any age, even children. Risk factors for sleep apnea can include being male, overweight, large neck size, a family history of sleep apnea and gastroesophageal reflux or GERD. If left untreated, sleep apnea can include a number of health issues such as high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and increased risk of Alzheimer’s. Untreated sleep apnea may also contribute to poor performance in everyday activities such as work, motor vehicle crashes, and underachievement in adolescents and children.
