Our surgeons at Lanzi Burke Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons are trained medical professionals offering a wide range of services to patients throughout Sewell, New Jersey. With decades of combined experience, our surgeons treat many painful and problematic oral conditions affecting patients’ quality of life and overall health.
What Problems Require the Care of an Oral Surgeon?
Problems affecting the jaw, mouth, and facial region require intervention by a skilled oral surgeon to prevent more serious and long-term conditions.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
The last four teeth to erupt, wisdom teeth can be problematic for most patients, causing overcrowding, infections, gum disease, and cysts, particularly when impacted or poorly aligned. Wisdom teeth often erupt in the late teen years or early 20s and are typically remedied through extraction surgery.
A type of corrective jaw procedure, orthognathic surgery addresses abnormalities in the jaw, facial bones, or teeth affecting speech, eating, chewing or sleeping. Orthognathic surgery addresses problems that cannot be repaired with other treatments. Many cases of jaw damage are the result of physical trauma, such as injuries from a car accident.
Craniofacial Implant Surgery
Craniofacial implant surgery addresses patients’ head and facial injuries due to car accidents, burns, severe malignant diseases, and some congenial birth defects. Oral surgeons reconstruct bone structure to restore function and appearance and improve quality of life.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) at the back of the jaw controls the ability speak, eat, and swallow easily. When damaged, the TMJ causes pain and discomfort and limits function. Structural problems with the jaw, teeth grinding, or clenching, dislocation, stress, and arthritis can all contribute to TMJ pain and can lead to other more serious health conditions. Surgical procedures for TMJ include:
- Joint restructuring to smooth the cartilage or to install an artificial replacement joint for patients with severely damaged or deteriorated joints.
- Arthroscopy/arthrocentesis to inject fluid into the joint to reduce inflammation and pressure and provide a greater range of motion.
- Soft tissue repair to tighten stretched joints and ligaments in patients with tissue damage.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
A serious medical condition, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causes interrupted air flow, low blood oxygen levels, and chronic sleep disruption. During sleep, the patient’s tongue is repeatedly sucked into the back of the throat, cutting off airflow and oxygen to the brain, causing the patient to awaken and gasp for air.
Without treatment, OSA can also lead to other serious health conditions, such as high blood pressure, stroke, and cardiovascular problems. Patients suffering OSA typically experience:
- Loud snoring.
- Headache upon waking.
- Extreme fatigue or narcolepsy.
- Concentration and memory problems.
- Irritability and quick temper.
Customized oral devices worn during sleep can help address OSA symptoms, though surgery may be necessary in severe cases. Part of diagnosis includes a sleep study in order for the surgeons to diagnose the exact causes and severity. Once diagnosed, there are several surgical treatment options to increase the airway, unblock the nasal passages, or reposition the jaw. Our skilled Sewell oral surgeons can thoroughly evaluate your condition and recommend an appropriate treatment plan.
Dental implants are an ideal solution for patients with missing or broken teeth and are an excellent replacement for traditional dentures. Dental implants are embedded in the jawbone and provide a solid foundation to secure custom artificial tooth crowns, function the same as natural teeth, and do not require removal at night or restrict certain foods. Implant options are available to replace one tooth or multiple teeth.
We also offer Teeth In a Day, a dental implant procedure that allows our surgeons to remove damaged teeth and replace with dental implants in one appointment.
Preparing for Your Initial Consultation
For the initial appointment, you should bring photo identification, insurance information, dentist referrals, dental records, and recent X-rays. Our staff can obtain this information on your behalf as well.
During the visit, an oral surgeon will examine the problem area, review records and X-rays, test results, medical history, and determine a diagnosis and treatment plan. It is important the surgeon has a complete understanding of your medical history, including current medications, past or chronic illnesses, allergies, and any previous surgical procedures. Bring this information with you to the appointment.
If surgery is determined as the most effective treatment, the surgeon will discuss the procedure, provide pre-surgery and recovery instructions, and answer any questions you may have about the surgery.
