Before & After
Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure performed on your teeth, gums, jaws or other oral structures. This includes extractions, implants, gum grafts and jaw surgeries. Oral surgery is usually performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a periodontist. These are dental specialists who have advanced training in oral surgery procedures.
Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implant surgery can offer a welcome alternative to dentures or bridgework that doesn’t fit well and can offer an option when a lack of natural teeth roots don’t allow building denture or bridgework tooth replacements.
Hollywood Smile is a total makeover of your smile, i.e. a complete prosthetic reconstruction of both jaws using caps, veneers and, quite often, implants. Hollywood Smile involves placing dental crowns on all teeth, or at least on all visible teeth in both jaws, which means up to and including premolars.
Dental implants are medical devices surgically implanted into the jaw to restore a person’s ability to chew or their appearance. They provide support for artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.
