Oral Surgery Procedures
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are experts in wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placement, all-on-4 teeth in a day procedure, and office based anesthesia. They utilize these skills to help their patients with pain and poorly functioning teeth and to restore oral health. Their expertise in office based anesthesia makes procedures more comfortable for patients and takes away the anxiety many patients have with oral surgery.
In addition to these skills, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons also can perform a wide variety of other procedures both in the office and hospital based setting including bone grafting, pathology services (biopsies and treatments), corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery), and fix broken facial bones (facial trauma).
When it comes to concerns about your mouth or face, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons have the knowledge and expertise that uniquely qualifies them to diagnose and treat a number of functional and esthetic conditions in this anatomical area including:
Wisdom teeth are the most likely to become impacted, meaning that they cannot erupt properly, or at all, through the gums. If your wisdom teeth are impacted, Cameo Dental Specialists can improve your oral health with a wisdom tooth extraction. Learn more about Wisdom Teeth.
A patient who is missing one, or several, teeth can have their teeth restored by rebuilding the base to secure a tooth. Dental implants are the surgical implantation of a new dental root which we can then attach a tooth to. Learn more about Dental Implants.
The All-on-4 Treatment Concept is a variation of dental implant procedures that have caught on widely since it was introduced in 1998. Dr. Paulo Malo, the concept’s pioneer, tinkered around with four dental implants on a patient’s dentition, and many dentists have since then attempted to replicate his procedure with varying degrees of success. Learn more about All on 4 Dental Implants.
We can match the right sedation for you, based on your surgery, your health and your needs. We have local anesthetic, conscious sedation options and can make arrangements for unconscious sedation when needed. Learn more about Sedation.
Extractions are done when it is the best option for the health of the patient. Our primary goal is to save teeth when possible. The surgical and non-surgical extraction of teeth can increase dental health when necessary. Learn more about Tooth Extractions.
A bone graft is a simple in-office procedure. We are looking to increase the amount of available bone. We do this by seeding the bone with other bone material promoting growth. This can be done with the patient’s bone, donated bone or synthetic bone. Learn more about Bone Grafting.
Everyone either knows someone or has personally experienced for themselves the pain of an impacted wisdom tooth. However, what most people do not realize is that it is not just your wisdom teeth that can become impacted. Your maximal cuspids, also known as your eyeteeth or your canines, can also become impacted. Learn more about Canine Exposure and Bonding.
Prepping your gum ridge, removing unhealthy teeth and increasing the health of your soft and hard tissue, are all important steps before having a prosthetic placed. Prosthetics include dental crowns, bridges, partial dentures and full dentures. Learn more about Pre-Prosthetic Surgery.
Facial trauma can range from lacerations to fractures and misalignment. There are steps that we can take to reduce long term effects including cosmetic benefits. Learn more about Facial Trauma.
Orthognathic surgery, also known as jaw surgery, is done to correct alignment. The jaw can be out of alignment due to congenital defects or trauma. Learn more about Jaw Surgery.
Lumps, bumps, changes in tissue color and growths may require a closer look. An oral pathology takes a closer look. Once we have received more information, we can discuss the next steps. Learn more about Oral Pathology.
Our facial cosmetics includes two of the most common cosmetic surgeries we provide: Botox and injectable dermal fillers. Learn more about Facial Cosmetics.
