Wisdom teeth are those furthest back in the mouth that erupt from the gum in a patient’s late teens or early twenties. When these teeth emerge in an irregular pattern, they can apply pressure to nearby teeth, causing crowding and discomfort. When these teeth apply forces on other teeth but have not emerged from the gum tissue, this is called impaction. At Mahoney Family Dentistry, we routinely extract both fully-erupted and fully-impacted wisdom teeth. If you believe your wisdom teeth are causing you pain, please call our office to schedule a free consultation today.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implants can be used to hold a tooth-colored crown, a bridge, or even dentures. Implants can be placed to retain a denture and lock it into place in the mouth. Depending on the attachments used on the implant, a denture can be permanently screwed to the implants. There are other options that utilize a ball-and-socket design so the denture snaps in and out of the mouth for regular cleaning. If you currently wear dentures and would like to speak with us about the best option for you, please call our office to schedule a free consultation today.
We have successfully placed countless implants for patients between the ages of 16 and 98. Whether a patient is missing a single tooth, or many, our experienced doctors can create a treatment plan to utilize implants to create the look and feel of your natural teeth.
