Dental Implants in Santa Fe, NM

Many patients with missing, damaged, or failing teeth turn to dental implants, a long-term and healthy tooth replacement solution. Dental implants are designed with comfort and functionality in mind. They replicate the look and feel of a natural tooth, and provide you with the ability to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about dentures or oral appliances. You can receive a single dental implant, multiple implants, an implant-supported bridge for several teeth missing next to each other, or a new arch of teeth with full-arch restoration.

The root of a natural tooth is embedded in the jaw bone. During chewing, the root stimulates the jaw, keeping the bone healthy. When a tooth is missing, there is nothing to stimulate the jaw bone, resulting in bone loss. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that fuses to the jaw bone similar to teeth roots, keeping the jaw strong and preventing bone loss. Your dental implant is custom made for your smile and will blend in with your other teeth for beautiful results.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Santa Fe, NM

Around the ages of 17–25, wisdom teeth usually develop. They are the last of the adult teeth and some people develop all four, more than four, or none at all. Also called third molars, these teeth are large and unnecessary for oral function, because you already have second molars responsible for chewing food. Since there is not enough space in the mouth, dentists and oral surgeons recommend having wisdom teeth extracted to prevent a number of oral health concerns. Wisdom teeth have large roots that can grow in unpredictable directions, possibly striking nerves or other roots.

A wisdom tooth can fully erupt through the gum tissue or remain trapped beneath the gums. This is known as impaction, and an impacted wisdom tooth must be surgically removed by an oral surgeon. When a tooth is stuck under the gums, it can grow sideways into other teeth, damaging adjacent molars. Sometimes, a wisdom tooth partially erupts through the gums and easily traps bacteria, causing infection. By having wisdom teeth extracted, you eliminate the risk of your third molars causing these oral health conditions and more.

BOTOX in Santa Fe, NM

BOTOX is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sun damage, reduction of collagen, natural aging, and repeated muscle contractions from making facial expressions can cause facial lines. BOTOX works by temporarily reducing underlying muscle activity beneath the skin that causes these lines for visibly smoother, younger-looking skin. BOTOX is backed by over 16 years of published studies and has a unique potency incomparable to other products—there is no generic BOTOX.

BOTOX is great for men and women, and can treat a variety of conditions, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. One BOTOX treatment takes only minutes and there is no downtime. You can see results as fast as 24–48 hours after treatment, and results can last up to 4 months. With BOTOX, you can expect predictable results and less noticeable facial lines. You will still maintain a natural-looking appearance and full facial expressions.
