A dental implant can replace one or more missing teeth with a permanent and fully functioning solution that looks and feels natural.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth should be removed early because they can become impacted, or trapped beneath the gums, and can damage nearby teeth or nerves.
Dr. Karas provides urgent care for facial trauma, ensuring the oral and maxillofacial structures heal properly and achieve pleasing aesthetics.
Corrective jaw surgery solves alignment and bite issues by surgically repositioning the jaws, as well as provides more harmony to the face.
Patients with one or more missing teeth can achieve a natural-looking, functioning smile with a permanent prosthesis secured using dental implants.
A bone graft helps regrow bone in an area where atrophy has occurred. This provides stability to the jaw and prepares the mouth for a dental implant.
General Tooth Extractions
An unhealthy or damaged tooth may need to be extracted in order to protect the health of surrounding teeth or replace the damaged tooth with a healthy dental implant.
Impacted Canine Teeth
An impacted canine is trapped beneath the gums and can be treated with an expose and bond procedure to help it successfully erupt into the dental arch.
Cleft Lip & Cleft Palate
Oral surgeons treat a cleft lip or cleft palate, a birth defect that causes a gap in the lip or roof of the mouth, by connecting the tissue and restoring function and a desired appearance.
Any unusual lumps or patches in the mouth could indicate oral cancer or disease. We diagnose and treat these pathologies to stop the progression of oral cancer.
Pain or clicking in the jaw joint can indicate a TMJ disorder, which we treat both surgically and nonsurgically to alleviate pain and properly align the jaws.
Trauma, surgery, or other dental procedures can cause nerve injuries, which can be decompressed, grafted, removed, and more to restore sensation to the area.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing starts and stops. It can be treated surgically or nonsurgically to ensure proper airflow.
