Facial Trauma

Fractures can involve the lower jaw, upper jaw, cheekbones, nasal bones, eye sockets, and a combinations of these bones. Fractured bones are reduced and fixated with titanium mini-plates and screws. Missing segments of the facial skeleton can also be reconstructed with customized 3D printed prosthetics. Facial fractures is usually associated with significant soft tissue injuries and range from deep lacerations, abrasions and burns.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

When there is not enough space for your wisdom teeth to erupt, they become “impacted” behind the second molars. Impacted wisdom teeth are removed to prevent damage or decay of the second molars, dental shifting, prevent soft tissue infections, and the formation of bone deforming cysts and tumors.

Oral Pathology

Any abnormal bony or soft tissue lesion or swelling, including abnormal salivary glands should be evaluated to exclude a potential malignancy. The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of tissue (mucosa) that is smooth and pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. Some diagnoses are possible by physical examination, but other conditions may require further investigations such as x-rays and biopsies.

Bone Grafts

Bone grafting procedures restore bone that has been lost or diminished because of missing teeth or other facial defects. Many patients who want dental implants must have a bone grafting procedure first to replace the missing bone. Proper bone will make it possible to replace the missing dentition with secure, permanent dental implants. There are a few types of bone grafting procedures, and depending on your condition you may need one or more. This includes a sinus lift procedure, socket preservation, ridge expansion, nerve repositioning. Major bone grafting are used to reconstruct major defects caused by injuries, tumor surgery or birth defects.

Dental Implants

Replacing missing teeth is important for your overall health. Aside from the obvious benefits of chewing, smiling, and speaking with ease, replacing missing teeth can also help prevent dental shifting, bone loss, and other health problems. Dental implants can support a permanent single tooth crown, a multi-tooth bridge, or even a full permanent denture.

Stem Cell Harvesting

Stem cells are unique because they drive the natural healing process throughout your life. Stem cells are different from other cells in the body because they regenerate and produce specialized cell types.

Dento-Alveolar and Orthodontic Surgery

Minor oral surgery is required for fractured teeth, surgical extractions, closure of the maxillary sinus after perforations, Apisectomies, removal of minor dental cysts, labial and lingual frenectomies, and orthodontic exposure of impacted teeth.

TMJ Disorders

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have had symptoms like pain or a “clicking” sound, you’ll be glad to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past.
