If the idea of going to the dentist brings on feelings of fear and anxiety, there are options to ease the anxiety. IV sedation is safe and easy and is recommended for those who suffer from fear and anxiety. Dr. Walton will administer medication directly into your blood stream (unlike pills), ensuring that the drugs work quickly and effectively. You may sleep through much of the procedure, but you will be able to be awakened easily and will remain in a state of relaxation. It is very likely that you will not remember much of your procedure afterwards... I.V. Sedation
Wisdom teeth extractions are a fairly common procedure. Wisdom teeth often cause problems as they are trying to protrude through the gums. When a wisdom tooth is impacted, it means the tooth is coming in at an angle and not straight through the gum line. This can cause pain, the tooth can come in unevenly, or the tooth may only emerge partially.
When a wisdom tooth only emerges partially a flap of skin, called an operculum, may form over the tooth. This can make the tooth hard to clean, and pieces of food may be caught under the skin. This makes it easy for an infection, called pericoronitis, to develop. It will usually go away on its own, but it causes swelling and pain in the area... Extractions & Wisdom Teeth

An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured... Dental Implants
