A dental bridge requires that the teeth surrounding the missing tooth be reshaped to support the bridge, while a dental implant is secured to the jawbone using a metal cylinder without affecting the surrounding teeth.

Gum grafts are used to treat gum recession and help prevent bone loss from occurring in the future. After a gum graft surgery, patients also may experience less tooth sensitivity since the tooth root is more protected.

While gum disease doesn't affect the dental implant itself, it can affect the surrounding gum and bone, and if left untreated, this can destabilize the implant, causing it to fail.

Bone graft material can come from other places on the body, such as the hip, shin, or chin, but surgeons can also use sterilized animal bone or synthetic materials to add more bone mass to the jaw. Adding bone mass can help create a more secure environment for placing dental implants.

An impacted tooth is usually a wisdom tooth that does not have enough room to emerge from the gums. The tooth presses against the surrounding teeth, and while it may be able to partially emerge, it will continue to push against the surrounding teeth if left unchecked.

It actually does not matter whether you floss first or brush your teeth first. What matters is that you are effectively brushing and flossing twice a day. Keeping this routine will help your restorations last and maintain the health of your smile overall.

What is peri-implantitis? Peri-implantitis is inflammation around the dental implant site that leads to gum recession and bone loss. Regular dental visits can prevent this condition, but if left unchecked, this could result in the implant failing.

Having a misaligned bite can put your jaw under extra pressure, and this can cause pain when your jaw is moving or stationary. Orthognathic surgery is one of the treatment options for a misaligned bite, and a consultation will help you determine if this treatment option is right for you.
