Collingswood Oral Surgeons
If you are suffering from missing teeth, facial irregularities, or wisdom tooth problems and are seeking an experienced oral surgeon in Collingswood, Lanzi Burke Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons is your best choice. We serve residents of Collingswood from our convenient Haddonfield office. We use the most advanced technology and latest techniques to help you smile confidently and eat the foods you love again.
Our board-certified physicians specialize in several procedures for Collingswood residents, including the following:
- Dental implants: We can replace one or more of your missing teeth with quality implants that both look and feel just like actual teeth. With a stable foundation securing the teeth in place, our implants make for an ideal, natural-looking replacement. Our implants are safely placed with titanium screws that effectively heal with bone tissue. We can now offer the revolutionary Teeth in a Day procedure in which you will receive your new implants in one visit.
- Jaw and facial surgeries: If you are struggling with a facial irregularity from a birth defect or an accident, our surgeons can reshape your jaw and improve both your bite and appearance. A corrective surgery can help you improve speech problems, chew food more easily, and relieve other symptoms of jaw irregularities.
- Wisdom tooth removal: It is natural to be concerned about the potential pain of having wisdom teeth removed. However, if wisdom teeth take up abnormal space, they can cause crowding, cysts, and gum disease. Our physicians have removed wisdom teeth for hundreds of patients, and we are able to extract teeth with as little discomfort as possible.
- Sleep apnea: When you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, your tongue blocks your throat and the passage of air. Surgery will correct the problem through multiple methods, including expanding the airway passage.
- TMJ surgery: The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is one of the most complicated joints in the body and when healthy allows a person to eat, talk, and swallow without pain. When it becomes diseased or damaged, any movement can be painful. There are different types of procedures that can correct this problem, allowing you to live pain-free.
Our oral surgeons perform additional treatments, and we accept most major insurance plans, including Medicare.
What can I Expect on My First Visit?
When you schedule your first appointment at Lanzi Burke Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons and visit our Haddonfield office, you can expect an initial consultation with one of our friendly and well-trained doctors. They will review your medical history and any X-rays you brought with you on your visit. They will conduct an examination of your mouth, focusing on the problem you are having.
We will try to get you in and out of our office as quickly as we can because we know how valuable your time is to you. To expediate your visit, there are several items you can bring, such as the following:

You should also be prepared to list any medications you are currently taking as well as any drug allergies you have. Finally, if you have any X-rays to show to the doctor, they should be recent, meaning that they were taken within the year.
