Our team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons offer a wide range of treatment options for smiles of ages. For example, we can address tooth loss with implant dentistry, prevent wisdom tooth impaction with an extraction, and treat facial trauma! To plan and implement this care with precision and accuracy, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons may suggest digital imaging technology. In today’s blog, we’re going to explain how we use Cone Beam Computer Tomography (CBCT) to plan and oversee your treatment.
Oral pathology refers to diseases that develop in the interior of our moths, impacting our cheeks, jaws, and salivary glands. Identifying and treating these oral health issues is crucial for maintaining good oral health and avoiding major complications. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons will discuss when to see us, and how to recognize signs of trouble.
We provide an array of oral and maxillofacial surgeries to help restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. From treating facial trauma to performing general extractions, or rebuilding lost jawbone structure and placing dental implants, we can help with minor and complex surgical procedures. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons explain how we do so comfortably using dental sedation.
Many of our oral and maxillofacial surgeries are designed to help preserve your smile and protect your teeth. However, sometimes we actually need to remove a tooth as part of your treatment. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons will explain how we perform a general extraction, and how this could help your smile.
When you lost all of your teeth, then you could have trouble eating, speaking, and your overall quality of life and health could suffer. Losing jawbone density due to tooth loss could further complicate the issue, making implant placement difficult. Fortunately, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons can secure a new smile on just four dental implants posts!
Dental implants help patients who need prosthodontic work regain more than just their appearance. The added support of an implant will help you bite and chew with confidence, and ensure that your restoration stays in place permanently. Unfortunately, not everyone is ready to go through treatment to receive implants. In some situations, a sinus lift or jawbone grafting procedure will have to take place to make sure that you can enjoy support for your implant (or implants). You can count on oral surgery at our Santa Rosa or Rohnert Park, CA office to give you the support you need to complete work to regain your full smile! (more…)
Facial trauma refers to any major or even minor damage to your teeth, jaw, or face. Unless treated, these injuries could not only impact smile esthetics, but also lead to issues with the balance of your jaw, increasing the risk of major complications. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons talk about how we address facial trauma.
When you have problems with the function of your bite, or issues that upset bite balance and cause problems for your smile’s health and beauty, you may need corrective jaw surgery. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral and maxillofacial surgeons will discuss how we approach orthognathic surgery!
When a smile loses mass and density in the jawbone, this could cause major negative impacts on function and even the appearance. To rebuild these lost tissues, which also help prepare the smile for implant placement, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral surgeons may suggest a procedure known as bone grafting, or ridge augmentation.
When a tooth doesn’t erupt all the way and becomes partially blocked, this is known as an impaction. Unless addressed, this could cause major complications for the health and stability of your smile, and also become a source of major discomfort. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa, CA, oral surgeons talk about fixing an impacted tooth with extraction or bracketing.
