Oral Surgery Procedures

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a dental specialty, in much the same way that orthopedic surgery is a specialty of the medical profession. Oral surgeons complete an additional 4-6 years of hospital-based residency training beyond the four years of general dental training. As part of their specialty training they study such areas as anesthesia, head and neck surgery, pathology, and trauma.

 

We provide all forms of anesthesia including general anesthesia, comfort sedation and local anesthesia. Common Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Procedures:

 

  • Difficult extractions
  • Removal of wisdom teeth
  • Pediatric oral surgery   (Video)
  • Dental implants
  • Bone and tissue grafting
  • Root canal surgery
  • Crown lengthening
  • Nerve repositioning
  • Surgical exposure for orthodontics
  • Biopsies and tumor removal
  • Trauma (jaw fractures)
  • Evaluation and treatment for jaw deformities (orthognathic surgery)

 

Third Molar Surgery

We take great pride in the way we treat patients who require third molar (wisdom teeth) surgery. For many, it is their first time experiencing a surgical procedure, so we make every effort to consult with the family first. By doing this, we can explain of the surgical procedure to help relieve the patient’s apprehension, and answer any questions they may have about the surgery. We thoroughly examine each patient’s medical history and conduct an oral examination of the patient before surgery.

 

These cases can be performed in our office, offering one of several anesthetic options (local, IV or general anesthesia). We use a combination of monitoring equipment, including an EKG and pulse oximetry for our sedation and general cases, and adhere to strict guidelines and protocols as set forth by licensure. We also have a highly trained staff with many years of experience to assist in all areas of treatment. Patients who have difficult impactions, or are medically compromised, can be treated in our outpatient surgery center.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants are state-of-the-art treatment and have provided a tremendous improvement in the lives of many of our patients. Implants can replace a single tooth or any number of missing teeth and can be used successfully with crowns (caps), bridges (several caps), or dentures to prevent slipping or sore spots.

 

Dental Implants typically have about a 95% success rate and are literally changing the lives of many patients. In some cases, we can avoid cutting down more teeth to fill in a space from a missing tooth, while for other patients implants mean being able to enjoy foods that they avoided because of missing dentures.
