We offer many different surgical procedures at our office. Here are descriptions of the most common:
A bone graft is a surgical procedure used to fix problems with bones or joints. Bone grafting makes it possible to restore bone growth in the jaw, which can ensure functionality in the mouth.
Cleft lip and palate procedures aim to close any gaps between the nose and mouth or lips, restore muscle function and provide a normal shape to the mouth.
A dental implant is a surgical replacement for the roots of a tooth.Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Cosmetic facial rejuvenation treatments, like Botox, help to restore smoother lines to the face, and can also be helpful for patients that suffer from chronic migraines.
We treat a range of facial trauma injuries, including soft tissue injuries, bone injuries, and injuries localized to a specific region of the face.
An impacted tooth means that it is stuck and can not erupt into function. There are many different kinds of impacted teeth, and in turn a variety of different methods for dealing with each one.
Corrective surgery is necessary when jaws do not align correctly and/or teeth do not fit comfortably in the jaw. In addition to ensuring that teeth function properly, jaw surgery can also improve facial appearance.
If you’ve recently noticed any discoloration, textural changes, or growths in your mouth, a clinical evaluation and diagnosis made by a biopsy may be necessary.
Platelet rich plasma is a by-product of blood, or plasma, that is rich in platelets and permits the body to heal much faster, which makes it ideal for procedures such as bone grafts and dental implants.
Patients that require a fixed bridge, removable denture, or other oral prosthesis may need surgery to ensure improved comfort and function. This kind of procedure is known as pre-prosthetic surgery.
When wisdom teeth are prevented from properly erupting, their extraction is necessary. These impacted teeth may cause many problems that can result in pain, infection, swelling, stiffness, and damage to adjacent teeth. The removal of the teeth usually resolves or prevents these issues.
