Wisdom teeth are not the only teeth that can create problems. Some teeth can become impacted due to eruption issues. Others may become painful, infected, or loose due to decay or periodontal disease. Your dentist may recommend a tooth extraction to help alleviate symptoms after other treatments have been exhausted.

Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, erupt much later than our other permanent teeth. They usually erupt into your mouth between the ages of 16 and 25. Because they are the last teeth to come in, they can create problems for your existing teeth. We may recommend wisdom teeth removal to prevent or correct these issues.

Much like a bone graft, a gum graft can help regenerate crucial tissues. We may recommend a gum graft to address severe instances of gum recession. The type of gum graft you receive depends on the severity and location of the recession.

Successful implant treatment requires adequate bone, in quality and quantity, in the area of jaw to be treated. We may recommend a bone graft if your bone is deficient in height or width to support an implant. A graft can help restore deteriorated bone, and give you a second chance at implant treatment!

Cosmetic surgery is designed to improve the function and appearance of your face, teeth, and gums. Cosmetic treatment(s) can include facial or oral surgical procedures specific to your individual needs and desires.

Orthognathic, or corrective jaw surgery, can be used to address minor or major irregularities in the bite and jaw(s). Your TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is one of the most complex and fragile joints in the body. Problems with your TMJ can prevent you from using your jaw properly while yawning, speaking, and eating. Orthognathic surgery can help correct problems with your TMJ and alleviate painful symptoms.

To optimize the amount of bone in an area prior to implant placement, Distraction Osteogenesis may be recommended to expand or lengthen a small area of the jaw that is to be treated with dental implants. Distraction Osteogenesis can even be used to lengthen or expand a portion of the upper or lower jaw, or if needed, the entire jaw. This procedure can be applied to the facial bones, jawbones, or even small segments of the jaws.

There are some Orthodontic tooth movements that are more difficult to accomplish than others. Sometimes patients may have missing teeth that would otherwise be used for stable anchorage during treatment. Occasionally a patient’s bone may be less dense in one area than in another. In adults, periodontal bone loss can affect the stability of a tooth needed for anchorage. These and other situations can create circumstances where there is less than ideal anchorage present for the type of tooth movement planned. In these cases, your orthodontist may recommend you see us for the placement of small Skeletal Orthodontic Anchorage attachments to help in the efficient orthodontic movement of your teeth.

Facial and Dental Trauma
If you experience facial or dental trauma be sure to schedule an emergency appointment as soon as possible. Injury or trauma to the face can result in serious problems for your esthetic, functional, and oral health. If you receive an injury to your facial bones or your teeth, you may need oral surgery. We are here to help!

Oral pathology refers to the diagnosis and study of pathologic problems that affect your oral and maxillofacial region. The goal of oral pathology is to diagnose and cure diseases of the mouth and jaws whose causes are not initially apparent. Once we determine the exact cause(s) of the problem, we can develop a more precise treatment plan for your specific case.

Platelet Rich Fibrin
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is a relatively new approach to tissue regeneration. PRF allows us to take advantage of the healing properties in your blood by isolating the growth factors. This makes it immensely beneficial when used during bone grafting. It can also be an excellent tool for the regeneration of soft tissues.

Sleep apnea is defined as the repeated cessation of breath during sleep. In some cases, sleep apnea can be a potentially life-threatening disorder. Initial treatments of sleep apnea usually involve non-invasive approaches (CPAP) and/or oral appliances. Severe cases or patients that don’t respond well to conservative approaches may require surgical intervention.

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ for short, is one of the most complex joints in the body. This complex series of ligaments, muscles, discs, and bones serve as a hinge-like mechanism that connects the upper and lower jaws. The TMJ allows us to move our lower jaw up, down, and side-to-side. Any problem that prevents the TMJ from working properly is known as a TMJ disorder or TMD. At New York Oral, Maxillofacial, and Implant Surgery, we offer treatment designed to alleviate the symptoms associated with TMJ disorders.
