What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and maxillofacial regions (jaws and associated structures). Our doctors practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise including wisdom tooth removal, corrective jaw surgery, dental implants, tooth implants, dental bone grafting, cosmetic procedures, jaw surgery, sleep apnea treatment, TMJ treatment, and the management of tumors and pathology.
This also includes techniques designed to rebuild jaw bone structure, diagnose and treat facial pain and traumatic facial injuries. Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
The surgical staff at OMS Associates are experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in administration of IV sedation and surgery. All of the staff are general anesthesia and CPR certified.
