Dental Implants
Dental implants are the modern alternative to dentures. Implant techniques allow a permanent tooth replacement option that is functional, permanent and indistinguishable from natural teeth. Implants are titanium screws inserted into the jaw bone to which a dental prosthesis (false tooth) is attached. Implants can be used for single or multiple tooth replacement to cater for individual needs.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom or Third Molar teeth are usually the last teeth to protrude or erupt through the gums. In most cases wisdom teeth do not erupt as there is normally not enough space in the mouth to allow them to do so. Evolutionary development of the human body has led to a shorter jaw than that of our ancestors, however; the number of teeth has remained the same. Thus leading to 32 teeth being squeezed into a “size 28? mouth. This results in wisdom teeth being unable to erupt and therefore becoming “impacted” which can lead to problems including; decay, infection, pressure, cyst formation, orthodontic problems and almost certainly associated pain.
 
Cancer of the Oral Cavity (Mouth), Throat and Neck
Any lesion in the mouth which does not go away within a few days needs investigation. A malignancy may present as a white lesion (sometimes white and red), an ulcer which does not heal or a lump. This lump may be in the mouth, on the face or in the neck. Any of these require proper examination by a doctor who specializes in treating head and neck lesions.
 
Orthognathic (Jaw) Surgery or Jaw and Teeth Corrective Surgery
Orthognathic surgery is designed to correct bony and dental discrepancies in the mandible (lower jaw) and maxilla (upper jaw) as well as their relationship to each other. It is commonly undertaken on many people whose teeth will not come together or mesh properly but are unable to be solved with orthodontic appliances (e.g. braces) alone.
