Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.
McDonough are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and the gum tissue is healthy, McDonough do not have to be removed. The extraction of McDonough is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth.
