Dental implants are the replacement of tooth roots in the mouth. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth.  Dental implants are small anchors made of biocompatible metal called titanium, which are placed in the jawbone.  The anchors begin to fuse with the bone over a few months. After the fusing process, known as osseointegration, abutment posts are inserted into the anchors to allow for the permanent attachment of the replacement teeth.  To fabricate the replacement teeth, an impression is taken and a model of the bite is created.  The replacement teeth are based on this model. Replacement teeth can either be crowns or dentures.

A wisdom tooth that is deemed problematic is normally extracted to avoid any oral complications.  To have a wisdom tooth removed, a small incision is made to open up the gum tissue over the tooth and remove any bone that is covering the tooth.  Once the tooth is in view, it is gently grasped with a dental instrument, known as a forcep, and gently rocked back and forth to loosen it from the jaw bone and surrounding ligaments.  Sometimes the tooth may need to be cut into smaller pieces to make it easier or removal.  Stitches may be necessary after the removal of a wisdom tooth.
Bone grafting is the replacement or enhancement of bone around teeth.  When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone collapses.  Bone grafting is performed to reverse bone loss or enhance bone.  The bone can be taken from parts of the body or from synthetic material.  Bone grafting allows for proper support of dental implants or prostheses.
Facial trauma involves injuries to the bone, teeth, skin, gums or other soft tissues.

Depending on the type of facial trauma sustained there are many different treatment options available.  However, the goal of treatment is to stop any bleeding from occurring, create a clear airway, repair any broken or fractured bone, and or suture any damaged soft tissue.  Treatment is immediate, as long as there are no neck fractures or life-threatening injuries.

Oral and maxillofacial pathology refers to the diseases of the mouth and the jaw.  Treatment options vary based on the patient’s specific needs.
Orthognathic surgery is done to correct misalignments or other abnormalities in the upper jaw and lower jaws.

Orthognathic surgery can involve surgical procedures such as an osteotomy (bone cutting), bone grafts, or distraction osteogenesis (stretching of the bone) and orthodontic (braces) care.  Orthognathic correction is conducted in stages, and the course of treatment can last a few months up to one year or more.

In order to perform the procedure successfully, the jawbones will be repositioned in accordance with one’s specific needs.  Inconspicuous incisions are usually made inside, and if needed, outside the mouth to allow for surgical plates, screws, wires and rubber bands to be used to hold your jaws in their new positions.
