Dental Implants Clearwater KS
Dental Implants are the most predictable and natural form of tooth replacement. Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth.
What Are Dental Implants? The actual implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, which creates a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
Dental implants have advantages over more traditional types of restorations. Dentures may be inconvenient, not to mention that dentures that slip can be uncomfortable. Once you learn about implant dentistry, you finally realize there is a way to improve your life.
Implants help to preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that may occur when teeth are missing. If your mouth is not ideal for implants, options such as bone grafting may be recommended for improved outcome. Our doctors utilize the most recent advances in dental implant technology.

Wisdom Teeth Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of wisdom teeth, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to wisdom teeth are discussed.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Clearwater KS
An average mouth has room for 28 teeth. It can be painful when 32 teeth try to fit in. These last 4 teeth are your third molars, which are also known as “wisdom teeth.”
Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed? Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen.
Wisdom teeth may need to be extracted when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems. Removal of the offending impacted teeth usually resolves these problems.
Early wisdom teeth removal is recommended to avoid such future problems and to decrease the surgical risk involved with the procedure.
Studies have shown that early evaluation and treatment of wisdom teeth result in a superior outcome for the patient. Patients are generally first evaluated in the mid-teenage years by their dentist, orthodontist or by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. With an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth, our doctors can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and predict if there may be present or future problems.

Orthognathic Surgery Presentation

Orthognathic Jaw Surgery Clearwater KS
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.
Who Needs Orthognathic Surgery? People who can benefit from orthognathic surgery include those with an improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly. Jaw growth is a gradual process and in some instances, the upper and lower jaws may grow at different rates. The result can be a host of problems that can affect chewing function, speech, long-term oral health and appearance.
Orthodontics alone can correct bite problems when only the teeth are involved. Orthognathic surgery may be required for the jaws when repositioning is necessary.
Our doctors use modern computer techniques and three-dimensional models to show you exactly how your surgery will be approached. We can show you how your bite will be improved after surgery. We can also display a preview of your appearance after jaw surgery, using comprehensive facial X-rays and computer video imaging.
