Many teens and adults have developed a full set of permanent teeth and are unaware of their wisdom teeth developing in the far back of the mouth. These molars are undetectable without regular dental examinations. Unfortunately, wisdom teeth can cause significant oral health problems such as infections, bone loss, and tooth decay if they are not removed.
Recent research supports the fact that wisdom teeth can cause both oral and systemic health problems. At Michigan Oral Surgeons, we recommend proactive management of wisdom teeth through early removal when indicated. This will reduce the risk of complications associated with wisdom teeth. To find out if your wisdom teeth are in need of removal, please contact us to make an appointment.
Dental implants are arguably the most popular dental restoration option if you are missing one tooth or even multiple teeth. A dental implant is the best solution because it offers the most stable, natural-looking and long-term option for patients to regain their oral health, function, and facial aesthetics.
The oral and maxillofacial surgeons at Michigan Oral Surgeons are uniquely qualified oral surgery specialists and are happy to meet with you and perform your dental implant placement. Our doctors have placed thousands of dental implants since modern implant techniques were first performed in the United States in 1982. With this vast background of experience, we can provide the state-of-the-art in implant dentistry. To make a consultation appointment with one of our surgeons, receive an oral exam, and discuss your dental implant options, please contact our office.
When a patient’s jaws do not meet properly or have another form of misalignment or improper bite, corrective jaw surgery may be necessary. A misaligned jaw can cause numerous problems like sleep apnea, digestive problems (due to the inability to properly chew), impaired speech and other oral health problems.
If you think that you may be a candidate for corrective jaw surgery, we encourage you to contact our office for an initial consultation with Dr. Lopez, Dr. Fear or Dr. Hitchcock, all of whom have undergone extensive surgical training and education, making them uniquely qualified to examine and treat irregularities of the jaw and face.
