Here at The practice of Jon Erik Glenn, D.D.S., we are proud to offer oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a dental specialty that focuses on disease, injuries, and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. This basically means that we deal with problems in the facial region.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons deal with problems that range from impacted teeth all the way to facial repair due to trauma. Many people visit a surgeon for dental implants. Tooth removal is also a common surgery of ours.
Our surgeons perform many jaw surgeries, whether your jaw needs to realigned or reconstructed. We do the same with facial bones. Sometimes they need realigned and sometimes they need to be completely reconstructed. We also deal with tumors of the jaw and mouth.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery can be a scary process so we will be here for you throughout the entire process. One of our staff will talk you throughout the surgery and recovery so that you know what to expect. We will answer any of your questions, whether you are in our office or you think of something when you get home!
