for a Healthy Mouth
Improve Oral Health And Functionality
At Associated Oral & Implant Surgeons, we offer more than just oral and maxillofacial surgery treatments. Our doctors treat a variety of additional concerns to help improve the function and health of your mouth. Many of our additional oral surgery services can be part of a full mouth reconstruction or be performed in addition to other treatments. Our goal is always to improve patient comfort and oral functionality so you can enjoy a happy and healthy lifestyle.
Oral cancer is a serious concern that is only caught in one-third of early cases, when treatment is most effective. We offer oral pathology exams to help identify potential cancerous or dangerous legions before they develop into more serious concerns. If identified and caught early, these legions can be treated to prevent potentially life-threatening conditions from developing.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to the skull and can become sore, overworked or damaged resulting in mild to excruciating pain during everyday use of the jaw. For extreme cases of TMJ disorder, we can surgically correct your jaw joint to eliminate the excessive wear and strain put on the muscle.
For those with severe cases of bruxism (teeth grinding), we can identify the root cause of the problem and surgically realign your jaw to provide a more harmonious bite between your teeth. If teeth grinding is not treated, the condition can severely damage the structure of your teeth at well as create a constant source of migraines.
Our doctors are trained in the application of BOTOX® for treatment of TMD (temporomandibular disorder) cases. The cause of TMD is typically an overworked jaw joint which can be resolved with an application of BOTOX to the muscle. BOTOX allows the jaw muscle to relax and relieve pain
