At Coastal Jaw Surgery, our mission is to provide excellent surgical care for our patient family in a safe, efficient and compassionate manner. Through teamwork, the most modern technology available and our God-given skills, we strive to provide our patients with a comprehensive, seamless and personal experience. Our desire is to improve our patients’ quality of life and promote the most important premise: We Care.

When multiple teeth are replaced using dental implants, patients experience a higher quality of performance and satisfaction than with other treatments. With TeethXpress, the number of visits and surgical procedures are drastically reduced. We are able to immediately place your new teeth on the same day as your implants. No more waiting means you get to leave our office with your new smile.

Everything we do at Coastal Jaw Surgery is designed to bring you the best care you’ll find anywhere. From your initial consultation to your follow-up visits, we are committed to making you feel welcome, comfortable, and safe. Our patients rave about the comfort they feel on the day of their surgery, and the improvement in their quality of life going forward. Contact us today to learn how TeethXpress can transform your smile and change your life.
