We love having an oral surgery practice in Metairie, where we can serve the people of this marvelous area. Located on the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain, Metairie is a suburb of New Orleans — and what could be better than being a stone’s throw from the French Quarter, the Garden District, the Superdome, Audubon Zoo, and the heart of Mardi Gras? We enjoy all of this here, plus more, because Jefferson Parish is filled with natural beauty, music venues, and cultural events of its very own, too. We are grateful every day for the opportunity to treat patients in this glorious and historically rich location. Next time you come to see us, why not get to know some of the things in the area that you may not have experienced? Ask us for a recommendation!

Dental implants are a popular option for tooth restoration because they feel natural, look beautiful, and have the potential to last a lifetime. While removable dentures and bridges rest on the bony ridge in the mouth, dental implants fuse to the jaw bone and are the only tooth replacement option that prevents bone loss. The post of a dental implant is embedded into the jaw bone and stimulates the jaw bone just like a natural tooth root, keeping the bone healthy and restoring full functionality to the replacement tooth. Dental implants are a healthy way to restore a single missing tooth, several teeth, or transform your entire smile through full-arch restoration. The final crown of a dental implant is created to blend in with the rest of your teeth for natural-looking results. Our oral surgeons specialize in implant-based tooth restoration and will design a custom treatment plan so that you can achieve a beautiful, healthy, and functioning smile.
Dentists and oral surgeons recommend having wisdom teeth extracted as soon as possible to prevent issues like pain, dental shifting, bite problems, infection, and more. Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to develop, and the average mouth does not have enough room for an additional set of molars. If left untreated, wisdom teeth can push against adjacent teeth, knocking them out of alignment or causing damage. Impacted wisdom teeth are ones trapped beneath the gums and require surgical extraction because these teeth will not erupt naturally. Although it is recommended to have wisdom teeth removed during the late teens or early twenties, we can extract wisdom teeth for patients of any age. Our oral surgeons make the wisdom teeth removal process as comfortable as possible and often perform this procedure using IV sedation, which allows you to rest comfortably during surgery.
