Oral Surgery Chicago

Dr. Joseph Baptist and Dr. Matthew Hamedani, oral surgeons at Cameo Dental Specialists serving the Chicago Communities.
Oral surgery is a specialized field within dentistry that addresses a wide range of dental and facial concerns. From simple tooth extractions to complex jaw realignment surgeries, these procedures are essential for restoring oral health and enhancing patients' overall well-being.

With advancements in technology and techniques, oral surgeons can provide effective solutions to various issues, helping individuals regain their smiles and confidence.

Wisdom Tooth Removal


Wisdom tooth removal is a standard procedure to remove impacted or problematic third molars. Often occurring during late adolescence or early adulthood, wisdom teeth may not have sufficient space to erupt properly, leading to pain, infection, or damage to adjacent teeth. The procedure typically involves local or general anesthesia for patient comfort. The oral surgeon then carefully extracts the tooth, sometimes necessitating surrounding bone or tissue removal.

Post-operative care instructions are provided to aid in healing. This extraction alleviates discomfort and prevents potential oral health issues such as overcrowding and misalignment, promoting long-term oral wellness.

Dental Implants


Dental implants offer an innovative way to replace missing teeth. They involve titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone, serving as a sturdy base for artificial teeth. Custom-made crowns or bridges are attached after the implants integrate with the bone, restoring both function and aesthetics.

Dental implants offer numerous benefits, including improved chewing ability, preservation of jawbone density, and natural-looking results. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime, making them a popular choice for tooth replacement.

All on 4 Dental Implants


All on 4 dental implants offer a comprehensive solution for individuals missing most or all of their teeth. This innovative technique utilizes four strategically placed implants to support an entire arch of artificial teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, All on 4 implants provide a secure and stable foundation, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

With fewer implants, this approach reduces treatment time and costs while delivering exceptional results. All on 4 dental implants offer a permanent solution for restoring a complete and functional smile.

Sedation Dentistry (Anesthesia)


Sedation dentistry involves using medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It is particularly beneficial for individuals with dental anxiety or phobia, as well as those undergoing lengthy or invasive treatments.

A variety of sedation options are offered, including mild sedation to general anesthesia, tailored to suit the patient's requirements and the procedure's complexity. Sedation dentistry ensures a comfortable and stress-free experience, allowing patients to receive the dental care they need without fear or discomfort.

Tooth Extractions


Tooth extraction is a common oral surgery to remove severely damaged, decayed, or infected teeth. The extraction process begins with administering local anesthesia to numb the tooth's surrounding area. Next, the oral surgeon delicately frees the tooth from its socket using specialized tools, proceeding to remove it with care. In some cases, particularly with impacted teeth, surgical extraction may be necessary, requiring an incision in the gum tissue to access the tooth.

Bone Graft


Bone grafting is a surgical procedure used to restore or augment bone tissue in the jaw. It is commonly performed to address bone loss resulting from tooth extraction, trauma, or periodontal disease and support dental implants. Through this procedure, bone graft material is carefully positioned in the area lacking bone, encouraging the growth of new bone and merging with the existing bone tissue.

Canine Exposure and Bonding


Canine exposure and bonding are procedures designed to facilitate the eruption of impacted canine teeth into their proper position within the dental arch. Impacted canines occur when these teeth fail to erupt naturally due to obstruction or improper alignment.

During the procedure, the oral surgeon exposes the impacted tooth by removing overlying gum tissue and, if necessary, bone. Once exposed, the tooth is guided into its correct position using orthodontic appliances and bonded in place. Canine exposure and bonding are essential for preventing dental complications, such as overcrowding or misalignment, and ensuring proper dental function and aesthetics.

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery


Pre-prosthetic surgery encompasses a range of procedures to prepare the mouth for the successful placement of dental prosthetics, such as dentures or dental implants.

These procedures may include bone reshaping, soft tissue grafting, or ridge augmentation to ensure adequate support and stability for the prosthetic device. By addressing underlying oral health issues and optimizing the oral anatomy, pre-prosthetic surgery enhances dental prosthetics' fit, comfort, and longevity.

Facial Trauma


Facial trauma refers to injuries sustained to the face, including the soft tissues, bones, and teeth, resulting from accidents, falls, or physical assaults. Oral surgeons are skilled in treating various types of facial trauma, from simple soft tissue lacerations to complex fractures of the facial bones.

Treatment often involves surgical intervention to repair fractures, reposition displaced bones, and restore the integrity of facial structures. Oral surgeons work closely with other specialists, such as plastic surgeons and maxillofacial surgeons, to ensure comprehensive and effective treatment of facial trauma. Prompt and appropriate management of facial trauma is essential for minimizing complications and achieving optimal functional and aesthetic outcomes.

Jaw Surgery


Orthognathic jaw surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, is performed to correct jaw and facial skeleton abnormalities that affect bite function, facial aesthetics, and overall oral health. These abnormalities may result from congenital conditions, developmental disorders, or trauma.

Orthognathic surgery involves repositioning the jaws to achieve proper alignment and balance, improving bite function, facial symmetry, and airway patency. The procedure may also address associated issues such as obstructive sleep apnea or temporomandibular joint disorders. This procedure can also enhance the functional and aesthetic aspects of a patient's smile and facial appearance.

Oral Pathology


Oral pathology involves diagnosing and managing diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial region, including the mouth, jaws, salivary glands, and facial structures. These diseases may range from benign conditions, such as oral ulcers or cysts, to malignant tumors, such as oral cancer. Oral surgeons play a crucial role in the detection, biopsy, and treatment of oral pathology, collaborating with other healthcare providers, such as pathologists and oncologists.

Early detection and intervention are key to successful treatment outcomes and improved prognosis for patients with oral pathology. Regular dental examinations and screenings are essential for detecting oral abnormalities and ensuring timely intervention when necessary.

Facial Cosmetics


Facial cosmetic procedures encompass a range of surgical and non-surgical treatments aimed at enhancing the aesthetic appearance of the face and neck. Oral surgeons are trained to perform facial cosmetic procedures, including facial rejuvenation, contouring, and lip enhancement. These procedures may involve facial implants, fat grafting, or botox injections to achieve natural-looking results and improve facial harmony.

Facial cosmetic surgery can address concerns related to aging, facial asymmetry, or congenital deformities, restoring confidence and self-esteem. Oral surgeons work closely with patients to understand their aesthetic goals and develop personalized treatment plans to achieve the desired outcomes.
