Wisdom Teeth Extractions
One of the most frequent questions we as Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are asked is, "Do I need to have my wisdom teeth removed and if I do, why?" This is a very good question as almost everyone will be faced with this question at some point in their life. Find out if you need your wisdom teeth removed.
The word "orthognathic" is derived from the Greek words ortho meaning straight, and gnathos meaning jaws. The term "orthognathic surgery" refers to a variety of procedures designed to move the upper and/or lower jaws into a different, more appropriate position. Learn about orthognathic (Jaw) surgery.
Not many years ago, when you lost permanent teeth you had essentially two replacement choices: partial or full removable dentures or fixed bridges. Dentures can fit poorly causing pain and difficulty chewing and speaking. Are dental implants right for you?
Facial Trauma (Dental Injuries)
Injuries to the face, jaws, and teeth are common. Motor vehicle accidents, occupational mishaps, interpersonal violence, and recreational accidents are all frequent causes of facial trauma. Learn more about dental injuries.
Your oral surgeon or dentist may have recommended apicoectomy as a surgical procedure to try to save your tooth. To understand more about the oral procedure or why it is necessary, an appreciation for traditional endodontic (root canal) therapy is helpful. Learn more about apicoectomy surgery.
"TMJ" is a popular buzzword in our society which, in reality, is an acronym for an anatomical body part, the temporomandibular joint. TMJ is not a syndrome, nor a disease, but is merely a designation for the human jaw joint. Learn more about our Houston TMJ treatments available.
Cleft Lip & Palate Repair
Cleft lip/cleft palate are congenital developmental abnormalities of the face in which the roof of the mouth, the dental arch and the lips do not join properly. A cleft is defined as a division in the body's natural structure, regularly formed before birth. Learn more about cleft lip and cleft palate.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment
Obstructive sleep apnea is a serious and potentially life threatening condition, which involves the airway collapse of the pharynx during sleeping periods. This airway collapse is caused by a decrease in muscle tone by either the pharynx, the tongue, soft palate, or a combination of these muscles.
Anesthesia & Sedation Dentistry
The type of anesthesia to be used for oral and maxillofacial surgery is determined by the procedure to be performed and the age, emotional and physical status of the patient. Learn more about anesthesia & sedation dentistry.
