Dental Implant Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.
Dental Implants Fort Mill SC
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.
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.
Sleep Apnea Fort Mill SC
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a potentially life-threatening disorder that affects millions of Americans, and many more around the world. People with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have disrupted sleep and may suffer from intermittent low blood oxygen levels. This leads to chronic fatigue and excessive daytime sleepiness. Repeated cycles of decreased oxygenation may lead to serious cardiovascular problems.
The first step in sleep apnea treatment is in recognizing the symptoms and seeking appropriate consultation. Dr. Moore is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon that offers consultation and treatment options for obstructive sleep apnea.
In addition to a detailed patient history, Dr. Moore will assess the anatomic relationships in the maxillofacial region. Dr. Moore has published a classification system for describing patterns of tongue-base narrowing, which can be helpful in applying specific surgical techniques. There are several treatment options available.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Fort Mill SC
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.”
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.
