WISDOM TEETH:

Most often, wisdom teeth are unable to fully come into the mouth because there is not enough room to break through the gums. They are “impacted.” Impacted wisdom teeth can cause crooked teeth, infection, pain, and bad breath. They can also cause damage to neighboring teeth.

In most cases, wisdom teeth should have been evaluated by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon by the time a patient is a young adult. If wisdom tooth removal is necessary, the ideal situation is to have the procedure performed between the ages of 13 and 17. They are removed pain-free during anesthesia and sedation.

EXTRACTIONS:

Dental extraction of one tooth, several teeth, or all teeth at once is done with local anesthesia, nitrous, or during IV sedation. Each of these approaches is performed in a pain free manner.  With removal of all teeth at once, sometimes the denture is placed at the time of the surgery.

DENTAL IMPLANTS:

Dental implants are used successfully to replace one tooth,  several teeth (a bridge) , or to support  a full upper or lower denture with 2 to 6 implants . Dental implants are over 96% successful. Dr. Collins has been a well known teacher, researcher, author, and innovator in the field of dental implants.
