The entire process has been greet with the AFOS group. I’ve used them 3 separate times for tooth removal and they’ve always been upfront, informative, and helpful. Each surgery has been quick, painless, and the aftercare routine was extremely helpful. Dr Russell is a fantastic doctor who provides valuable insight and gets the job done right. The entire staff from front office to the assistants also are welcoming and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Russell and his staff for any oral surgery needs!

Dr. Russell Spinazze was AMAZING!! My daughter needed a baby tooth extracted so she could proceed with her next set of Invisalign trays! He was so kind and compassionate with my daughter! He explained in detail what he was going to do and made her feel more at ease. The rest of the staff and front desk personnel were awesome! We will definitely recommend and be back in the future if needed. Thank you all very much!!!!

Dr 'Mark' and staff are the BEST. He verbally walked through the procedure as he operated so no surprises Discomfort was less than a routine cleaning. Hard to imagine the procedure being any better! Highly recommend this practice for oral surgery!

I have an extreme phobia regarding dentists. My hands were visibly shaking. The staff and the doctor were all extremely good at trying to calm my phobia. They made sure to tell me exactly what was going on and what to expect Dr. Sugar had a very light touch from what I could feel as he was giving me the Novacain injections. They gave both oral and written discharge instructions so that I can look at written instructions, knowing that I most likely was not in a position at the time to remember the discharge instructions. They were very good, calling the next day to make sure there were no problems and encouraging me to contact the office with any questions or concerns

The extraction went super easily. The numbing injections were easily tolerated. The numbness wore off quickly. I had pain, but not overwhelming.

What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium tooth root replacements which are inserted into the jaw where teeth are missing. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and over time the bone bonds with the titanium and creates a strong foundation for teeth or dentures. In the case of individual teeth crowns are then attached to the implants, above the gums, to provide the visible tooth. In regards to dentures, the implants are equipped with button or snap type clasps to provide the dentures with superior retention. By increasing denture retention the quality of chewing is improved and lessens loose dentures. In addition to the obvious esthetic and functional benefits, implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the natural bone deterioration that occurs with tooth loss.
