We strive to provide our patients with effective and comfortable oral surgery in Ironbound Newark. We utilize modern technology so that we are able to offer our patients care in the comfort of our office, which is less stressful that visiting a hospital, especially for our younger patients. We strive to provide the best oral surgeon to meet all our patients’ needs.

What Is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?

An oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Ironbound Newark has completed additional training after graduating from dental school with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons receive additional training in anesthesia, emergency medical care and surgical training during their surgical residency. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is one of the specialties that the American Dental Association (ADA) acknowledges as a profession where the practitioner can offer services beyond the scope of a general dentistry.

We understand that it may be difficult for patients to determine whether they need general dentistry or oral and maxillofacial services; however, local dentists will refer most patients to an oral surgeon when they cannot address pressing dental issues. Often, patients who need IV sedation or general anesthesia come to us for their procedure. If you have any questions about dental treatment performed by an oral surgeon, please contact our office.

Which Oral Surgery Services Does an Oral Surgeon Offer?

Our oral surgeon performs all types of oral surgery in Ironbound Newark to restore the function or appearance of patient’s teeth, mouth and jaw. We are proud that local dentists refer their patients to us for the following procedures:

Difficult Extractions Including Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth can potentially cause a number of health problems since we have evolved. Wisdom teeth can be advantageous when they develop correctly, unfortunately, wisdom teeth frequently become impacted. We can extract impacted wisdom teeth at our oral surgery office, along with any other problem teeth.

Dental Implant Procedures

Dental implants are secure posts that our oral surgeon in Ironbound Newark places into the jawbone, creating an artificial tooth root. The post anchors a custom artificial tooth, which allows you to eat your favorite foods once again. Generally, dental implants require two visits; one to install the anchor and one to attach the artificial tooth to the post. Additionally, implants restore facial contours and allow our patients to smile confidently.

Bone Grafting

Missing teeth, or even dentures, may contribute to bone erosion or bone loss in the jaw. If you and your specialist decide that dental implants are the best solution for your missing teeth, our oral surgeon in Ironbound Newark may find it necessary to graft bone to the area to make it strong enough to hold the implant. Dental implants will prevent further bone erosion.

Denture Related Procedures

Dentists who are fitting their patients for dentures may refer their patients to us to remove mouth bumps that interfere with dentures fitting comfortably. The bumps, called tori, are small, harmless bits of bone that generally do not become a problem until a person decides to get dentures. Additionally, we perform pre-denture extractions.

Temporomandibular Joint Treatment (TMJ / TMD)

We see patients who suffer from unexplained earaches, headaches or jaw pain and are referred to us by their dentist for TMJ disorder treatment. Our team will discuss your options for correcting this condition, which may include a mouth guard another non-surgical treatment option.

Oral Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

We treat tissue abnormalities in our office by first taking a sample and then sending it to the laboratory for testing. It is vital to have soft tissue changes, which may include discoloration or bumps anywhere in the mouth or on the lips, checked by a professional. We can often remove the lesions as part of our comprehensive services.

In addition to these procedures, we also offer surgery for cleft lip and cleft palate malformations and treatment for sleep apnea. We like to think that our oral and maxillofacial surgeon is well suited to meet your oral health needs. We strive to provide the best care possible in a clean, safe setting, and we make every effort to relieve any anxiety that you feel before surgery.
