Dr. Frank and his staff handles extensive oral procedures in facial trauma cases, jaw surgery and bone grafting. Doctors now have the ability to grow bone where needed; this provides for an opportunity to place implants of proper length and width, it also gives us a chance to restore functionality and esthetic appearance.
Another procedure performed by the doctors is dental implants. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.
