Exceptional dentistry,
extraordinary services.

Periodontal Disease: Is an infection of the gums that starts out as plaque then turns into an opaque film on the teeth that hardens to form tartar. As tartar (calculus) accumulates, it harbors bacteria that attack the soft tissue around the gums. This is the early stage of gum disease known as Gingivitis. When it is left untreated, Gingivitis becomes Periodontitis which ultimately destroys the tissue surrounding your teeth and the bone that holds your teeth in place. Bad breath and bleeding gums are a few early warning signals, but most often...

Endodontics is the dental specialty that deals with the nerves of the teeth, otherwise known as root canal therapy. Root canals are probably the most dreaded procedure in dentistry and the most common procedure relating to endodontics. When a tooth becomes infected it is usually because the nerve of the tooth has died, and the infected nerves need to be removed. If left untreated an infection can turn into an abscess, which is a much more serious problem that includes bone loss. "Root canal" has become a scary term for dental patients to hear,...

Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to in order to place the new tooth. The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. After the implant is placed the gum is sutured. The implant must be...

Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth. The process of creating a bridge begins by creating abutments (anchors) out of your existing teeth where the bridge will be attached. After the abutments have been prepared, a mold is taken of the area which is sent to a dental laboratory. After the fabrication of the bridge we will fit you with a temporary. After 3-4 weeks the permanent bridge will be ready to be seated and a last appointment is made. Dr. Wilson will then use an adhesive to make sure that the bridge is set. The bridge...
