Your teeth affect your whole body. When they’re healthy, you’re healthier too. A missing tooth can affect your bite, speech and eating choices.
FRACTIONAL CO2 LASER RESURFACING The CO2 laser smooths fine lines and wrinkles and reverses sun damage and age spots, resulting in more youthful, smooth, and younger-looking skin. The laser delivers tiny concentrated beams of heat energy that create microscopic channels that trigger collagen and elastic fiber production, while leaving some unaffected skin in between the channels to reduce healing time. The result is deep dermal regeneration that dramatically improves your skin elasticity and appearance. The Lumenis AcuPulse Laser that we use is the gold standard in CO2 laser treatments.
With an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth, Dr. Rutner or Dr. Cardoso can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and predict if there are present or future potential problems. Studies have shown that early evaluation and treatment result in a superior outcome for the patient. Patients are generally first evaluated in the mid-teenage years by their dentist, orthodontist, or by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. All outpatient surgery is performed under appropriate anesthesia to maximize patient comfort. Our doctors are trained, licensed, and highly experienced in providing various types of anesthesia for patients.
