What is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?

An oral surgeon is a dental specialist who is trained to diagnose and treat diseases, injuries, and defects impacting the teeth, jaws, or other parts of the mouth. After receiving his or her dental degree, an oral surgeon completes an additional four years of study and hand-on experience, typically in a hospital-based residency program. They train alongside medical residents in rotations that include general surgery techniques, internal medicine, plastic surgery, emergency medical care, anesthesiology, and otolaryngology services (ear, nose, and throat).

What are Common Types of Oral Surgery Services?

There are many reasons why your dentist may recommend you see our oral surgeon in Newark. Oral surgeons can correct problems with the jaw, facial bone, and soft tissues. Here is a look at some of the types of procedures our oral surgeon provides:

Dental implant placement

Dental implants have revolutionized the way missing teeth can be replaced. The implants act like tooth roots, fusing with the bone to provide a stable support for a crown, bridge, or denture. READ MORE

Implant-supported dentures / permanent denture

How would you like to have teeth 24-hours-a-day again? Our oral surgeon or our general dentist can securely attach a denture to dental implants, which locks the denture in place. You won’t have to worry about the denture slipping, or need to worry about it being dropped since it stays permanently in the mouth. The dental implants also keep the jaw bone from receding, which helps prevent premature wrinkling around the mouth. READ MORE

Pre-prosthetic surgery

Tooth extractions to remove natural teeth so a full denture can be placed is called pre-prosthetic surgery. Our oral surgeon in Newark can also remove small, bony bumps called tori that can interfere with the denture’s ability to sit on your gums comfortably.

Difficult tooth extractions and wisdom teeth removal

While most general dentists can pull teeth, an oral surgeon is trained to remove teeth that are partially or fully impacted, meaning they are still trapped below the gum line. This frequently happens with wisdom teeth, which are the third set of molars that typically emerge in the late teen years. Impacted teeth can cause swelling, pain, and gum infection. They can also press against nearby teeth, shifting those out of position. Our oral surgeon can remove these problem teeth in the comfort of our own office. READ MORE

Bone grafting

Most people don’t realize that when you lose teeth, the jaw bone changes shape. The bone begins to resorb, or decrease, once it’s no longer needed to hold a tooth in place. If you do not have enough bone to support a dental implant, our oral surgeon can perform a bone graft to regenerate the jawbone and create a suitable base for a dental implant.

Sinus lifts / sinus augmentation

If you’re having a dental implant placed in the upper jaw, you may need a sinus lift. That’s simply the name of the bone grafting procedure when bone is being added to the upper jaw near the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of the nose. There are a few reasons why this might be necessary. First, the upper jaw has less bone than the lower jaw. Secondly, tooth loss causes bone resorption, which means the natural upper bone may have receded since the tooth or teeth came out. Third, the sinuses may be too close to the bone and bone needs to be added to the area between the sinus cavity and the jaw.

Oral cancer diagnosis / Lesion biopsy and removal

Oral cancer is on the rise and often is invisible to the naked eye. Our oral surgeon in Ironbound Newark can take samples of abnormal tissues or growths and send them to a laboratory for testing. In many cases, our oral surgeon can remove pre-cancerous or cancerous legions or will work in tandem with another specialist to address your specific needs. There are many surgical procedures available to remove a tumor and restore the appearance and function of tissue that has been impacted by cancer.

TMJ / TMD Treatment

Do you suffer from headaches, ear aches, or have a sore jaw? Do you ever hear clicking sounds when you open your mouth wide? You may suffer from a problem with the temporomandibular joint, commonly referred to as TMJ. That’s the joint that’s located in front of the ear that makes it possible to open and close your mouth. Our oral surgeon can examine your jaw to see if a surgical procedure or a non-surgical remedy such as a mouthguard or BOTOX treatment will solve the problem.

Our oral surgeon at Garden State Dental of Newark is also experienced in facial trauma surgery, craniofacial pain management, and orthognathic surgery, which is corrective jaw surgery that addresses problems with a protruding jaw, receding chin, jaw joint pain, and lip position.
