Dental Implants & Wisdom Teeth Removal in Columbia MO
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Wisdom Teeth (3rd Molars) are commonly recommended for removal prior to age 25. The American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) has an established set of criteria that is used to determine whether or not wisdom teeth removal is indicated for each particular patient. The most recent study findings and recommendations can be found here.
