Drs. Howerton, Hopkin & Kennedy
As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. David W. Howerton, Dr. Joel K. Hopkin and Dr. Gabriel M. Kennedy manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires up to 6 additional years of hospital based surgical and anesthesia training after dental school. Drs. Howerton, Hopkin and Kennedy practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from facial surgery to corrective jaw surgery and wisdom tooth removal. They can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, TMJ disorders, and perform a full range of dental implant procedures.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Implants are a team effort between an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and a Restorative Dentist. While Dr. Howerton, Dr. Hopkin and Dr. Kennedy perform the actual dental implant surgery, and initial tooth extractions and bone grafting if necessary, the restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis.
