Our Wichita office specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery, but what does that mean? Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons manage a variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and maxillofacial regions (jaws and associated structures). Furthermore, 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, TMJ treatment, cleft palate and cleft lip surgery, facial trauma, and the management of tumors and pathology.
This also includes techniques designed to rebuild jaw bone structure, and diagnose and treat facial pain and traumatic facial injuries occurring from accidents or violence. Our staff is trained in assisting with Intravenous (IV) sedation or outpatient general anesthesia in our state-of-the-art office setting. In addition, patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery.
The surgical staff at Wichita Oral Maxillofacial Surgery Associates are experienced, certified oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in the administration of IV sedation and surgery.
OMS surgeons are highly educated and trained to diagnose and treat serious oral conditions as well as routine surgeries such as wisdom tooth removal and dental implants.
Additionally, all of our staff are general anesthesia and CPR certified.
