Maxillofacial surgery refers to any surgical procedure aimed in correcting any issue with the facial structure, jaws, mouth, and neck. Our specialized staff has received rigorous training to ensure we have the tools, and knowledge, needed to created treatment plans tailored to each patient. Our maxillofacial surgeons spend four years in a surgical residency program based in a hospital in addition to their four years of dental school. This extra training provides insights into a vast amount of surgeries and allows them to be able to administer general anesthesia.
Our staff can handle maxillofacial issues related to both the hard and soft tissues of the face, jaws, and mouth. Most surgeries can be performed in our office setting allow our patients to relax in an environment they know and have gotten used to. During your consultation we will discuss any foundations that will need to be in place before the final procedure can move forward. For instance, for our patients getting dentures we will evaluate if your jaw bone needs to be reshape or smoothed to help ensure your dentures are comfortable when worn. A bone graft might be needed on the jaw before an implant can be placed. We may also be involved in cases of obstructive sleep apnea, facial pains, and removal and treatment of oral cancer.
