Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Hoboken
At Union City Oral Surgery Group in Hoboken, we treat several diseases, injuries, traumas, and conditions that affect the head, neck, face, jaw, maxillofacial region, and mouth.
The following are the oral and maxillofacial conditions we treat:
Corrective Jaw Surgery
Corrective jaw surgery may reposition the upper and lower jaw, as well as the chin, to correct irregularities. This can have vast improvements in chewing, speaking, and breathing.
Corrective jaw surgery may be beneficial if you experience any of the following:
- Difficulty chewing
- Difficulty eating food
- Excessive wear of teeth enamel
- Receding chin
- Protruding jaw
- Sleep apnea
- Difficulty breathing
If you are experiencing pain or a diminished quality of life due to misalignment of the jaw, speak to an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon for an assessment of your condition and to determine whether corrective jaw surgery is necessary for you.
Dental implants are a long-term solution to multiple or singular missing teeth that aid in aesthetic and functional well-being. During the surgical procedure, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon places a titanium implant that fuses with the jawbone through osseointegration, preventing decay or movement.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth might emerge partially or fully impacted and tend to be susceptible to recurring tooth decay, infections, and gum disease. Extraction may have many benefits, including reducing the likelihood of orthopedic treatments, preventing damage to nearby teeth, and potential jaw disorders.
A cleft palate results from improper fetal development and manifests in all or partial regions of the nasal cavity and mouth growing together improperly, having the appearance of a gap, or split in the lip in the opening in the roof of the mouth. This may cause severe complications until it is surgically resolved.
