Do You Need Oral Surgery in Weehawken?
Sometimes surgery is required to get your smile back to 100%.
One of the most common surgeries is dental implants. These implants permanently replace missing teeth and involve a titanium cylinder being placed into your jaw and topped with a crown.
Occasionally gum disease or injury can cause the deterioration of jawbone. When this happens, your oral surgeon in Weehawken takes bone cells from your tissue bank (your jaw, hip, or knee) and using bone regeneration, promotes bone growth in the affected area.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
When wisdom teeth erupt, they can cause issues, such as overcrowding. When this happens, preventive surgery, i.e. an extraction, may be the answer. During an extraction, your dentist will numb the area, open the gum tissue, remove the tooth, and care for the area. It is a simple surgery with recovery time as little as a few days.
If you suffer from an abnormal bite or misaligned jaw, then corrective jaw (orthognathic) surgery may be for you. Your surgeon first assesses the jaw with x-rays, then performs a procedure to move your jaw into the correct position for better functionality and long-term health.
Disorders to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can cause pain and clicking in your jaw. If conventional techniques do not cure the issue, an arthroscopy or open joint repair will allow us to relieve the pressure on the joint and give you a pain-free jaw.
Changes in the appearance of your mouth can be a sign of oral cancer. Therefore, we urge our patients to perform monthly mouth checks to monitor any changes. If you notice lumps, lesions, patches of color, or begin to experience pain, please contact us.
