Does an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Offer Different Services Than a Dentist?
After graduating from dental school, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon will also complete anesthesia and surgical training in order to deal with more complex problems related to face and mouth, such as trauma damage and serious oral diseases. This is typically completed through a hospital-residency program.
Typically, a person will visit a dentist first, and if the dentist believes that surgery is necessary, he or she will refer their patient to a practice such as ours for more extensive work. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon can offer patients pain management and more invasive procedure options that dentists cannot, which are some of the reasons why dentists will refer patients when they believe that the procedure may be painful without general anesthesia or IV sedation or when it requires the expertise of an oral surgeon.
Do You Perform All Types of Oral Surgery Services?
Our doctor strives to be the best oral surgeon in our community. Our office offers all of the services that our patients expect in a safe, clean setting where they can relax and know that they are in good hands. Examples of the type of procedures that we perform include:
Extractions of Teeth Including Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, tend to erupt when a person becomes an adult. When the third molars align properly, there is no reason to remove the teeth; unfortunately, this does not happen very often. If the teeth only partially erupt or they are growing sideways, our oral surgeon in Jupiter will extract the teeth, preventing infections, swelling and pain.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants make a major difference in individual’s lives since they mimic natural teeth in appearance and functionality. The person’s facial contours and lips remain full with a healthy appearance for a long time since living with multiple missing teeth will cause a person’s face and lips to sink into their face, making them appear as if they are perpetually frowning. Implants involve placing a metal post into the jawbone, which acts as an artificial tooth root, and then our oral surgeon in Jupiter attache a crown to the post so that the crown is as strong as a natural tooth.
Over time, the jawbone atrophies when teeth are missing, leaving the bone unsuitable to anchor dental implants. Individuals with deteriorated jawbones who desire the benefit of the aesthetic appearance of dental implants enhancements can consult our oral and maxillofacial surgeon in Jupiter to determine if he or she is a suitable candidate for a bone grafting procedure.
Denture Related Procedures
We can remove mouth bumps that interfere with dentures fitting comfortably or extract necessary teeth before your dentures are placed. If dentures are uncomfortable, people tend to not wear them. We believe that everyone deserves comfortable dentures that enhance their appearance.
TMJ Related Treatments
Individuals with Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders may experience headaches, earaches and the inability to open their mouth properly. If you have TMD, the disorder associtated with the Temporomandibular Joint, schedule an appointment for oral surgery in Jupiter to discuss your options for treatment.
Our specialist is qualified to extract samples of suspicious growths and send them to the laboratory for analysis. It may be possible to remove the lesion in the office, but if it is not, we will work with your doctor or specialist to provide you with customized care.
