Dental implants are a healthy, beautiful option for restoring failing or missing teeth. Dr. Kunkel can place single dental implants, an implant-supported bridge, or restore your entire smile with the All-on-4® treatment concept using several implants to support a fixed denture. Dental implants are the only tooth restoration option that fuses to the jaw bone, preventing bone loss and preserving dental alignment. Whereas traditional dentures or bridges cosmetically restore missing teeth, dental implants restore their appearance and function.
You can receive dental implants at any age as long as the jaw has finished developing. This is usually around the age of 18. In order to qualify for dental implants, you must have adequate jaw bone to support the implant post. If the jaw bone has deteriorated, Dr. Kunkel can place a bone graft to rebuild the jaw, which helps more patients become candidates for implant-based tooth restoration. Whether you are missing a single tooth or wish to restore your entire smile, Dr. Kunkel will create a custom treatment plan unique to your oral health needs and budget.

Third molars, more commonly known as wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to develop in the mouth. They usually make an appearance during the late teens or early twenties, and the average mouth does not have enough room to house an additional set of molars. Dentists and oral surgeons recommend having wisdom teeth removed as soon as possible. If left untreated, wisdom teeth can damage adjacent molars, push teeth out of alignment, cause pain or swelling, and lead to the formation of cysts or tumors due to infection.
Some wisdom teeth remain partially or fully trapped beneath the gums, known as impaction. If a wisdom tooth is impacted, it will not naturally erupt and must be surgically removed. Dr. Kunkel regularly performs wisdom tooth extraction in the comfort of our office and offers many anesthesia options to ensure a safe and comfortable surgical experience. Many patients undergo IV sedation with wisdom teeth removal, which allows you to rest comfortably during the surgery and wake up when it is over. If you or your child have wisdom teeth, we encourage you to contact our office for an evaluation to determine if it is time to have them extracted.
