Oral Surgeons When
You Need Them The Most
Improve Function, Health And Appearance
Orthognathic, or jaw surgery, is required when the top and bottom jaws don’t come together correctly. This can be caused by a variety of factors, and can cause issues that affect speech, appearance, cause pain, and affect your oral health. Our team of five board-certified oral surgeons have extensive training and are considered experts in correcting areas of the jaw to improve biting, speech, look, TMJ pain, and misaligned bites. Our goal during jaw surgery is to help restore your health, appearance and self-confidence and alleviate any problematic symptoms you face daily, through expert care and modern techniques.
Associated Oral & Implant Surgeons
Our patients enjoy much needed relief from oral pain and toothaches after wisdom tooth extraction. For many, their oral health is protected from future damage developing, like infection or tooth crowding.
Wisdom Teeth Should Be Extracted
Our entire team is focused on your comfort and safety, before, during and after jaw surgery. Before we begin jaw surgery we will talk with you about your goals and give recommendations on how best to achieve them. Through modern technology, like our computer-guided virtual surgical planning tool, we can digitally plan your surgery and show you the results you can look forward to. This also helps us provide extremely accurate and precise care for the most successful outcome. The surgery itself may be performed in our specially-designed office or in one of the many hospitals where we are on-staff. We have sedation options that will help you relax so you are comfortable throughout. Afterwards, we will give you specific instructions on your unique recovery. You can expect to be out of work or school for a number of weeks, and will likely be able to return normal chewing function after a month or two.
During wisdom tooth surgery, we will perform a 3D CBCT scan of your jaw to gain detailed images of your oral structure, position of wisdom teeth and where nerves are located. You will be sedated during surgery (the type of sedation chosen will be determined with you) so anxiety or discomfort during the procedure is minimized—many patients do not even remember the surgery happening at all. Our experienced oral surgeons will then carefully extract each problem wisdom tooth from the jaw in a manner to promote ease of healing afterward. The locations will then be stitched and protected in order to successfully heal.
