Sicklerville Oral Surgeons
Our Sicklerville oral surgeons at Lanzi Burke Oral & Maxillofacial perform a range of surgical services throughout South Jersey. We have decades of combined experience treating painful and debilitating oral conditions that interfere with overall health and quality of life.
What Is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons specialize in treating injuries, diseases, and abnormalities of the mouth, face, and jaws and perform surgical procedures to correct them. Highly trained and educated, oral and maxillofacial surgeons typically undergo four to six years of hospital medical residency following dental school. Upon residency completion, they pursue certification from the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery to practice.
We treat patients experiencing pain and symptoms due to trauma, congenital birth defects, and oral health conditions with compassion, care, and comfort.
What Conditions Do Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Treat?
Oral surgeons treat problems and conditions affecting more than just the mouth and teeth. They may also treat a range of problems affecting the jaw, sinus, and facial regions that require surgical intervention, including:
- Craniofacial implant surgery: Head and facial trauma due to severe malignant diseases, congenital birth defects, car accidents, or burns may require corrective craniofacial implant surgery. For patients with these conditions, our highly skilled surgeons reconstruct bone structure to restore function and improve patients’ appearance and quality of life.
- TMJ disorders: One of the most common conditions is damage to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) located at the back of the jaw. The TMJ controls speaking, eating, and swallowing functions. Damage to the TMJ caused by teeth grinding or clenching, arthritis, dislocation, and stress can lead to structural problems, pain, and lessen the joint’s ability to function properly. Untreated TMJ symptoms can lead to more serious health conditions and may require surgical intervention, such as:
- Restructuring the joint to smooth cartilage.Installation of an artificial joint.Arthroscopy or arthrocentesis to inject inflammation-reducing fluid into the joint.
- Repair soft tissues to tighten stretched ligaments and joints.
- Orthognathic surgery: Abnormalities in the jaw, facial bones, or teeth affecting speech, chewing, eating, or sleeping may require orthognathic surgery. This type of surgery addresses problems other surgeries are unable to correct.
- Wisdom teeth extraction: Wisdom teeth erupt in the late teens to early 20s and can be problematic for many patients. Wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding in the mouth, infections, cysts, and gum disease, particularly when poorly aligned or impacted. Surgical extraction may be required to alleviate pain and problems caused by wisdom teeth.
- Dental implants: Patients with one or more missing or damaged teeth benefit greatly from dental implants, which are embedded directly in the bone to secure artificial tooth crowns. Dental implants are semi-permanent, function like natural teeth, do not require removal, have no food restrictions, and are an ideal replacement of traditional dentures.
- Multiple teeth extraction: Decay, periodontal disease, trauma, and poorly positioned teeth often require multiple tooth extractions.
- Teeth in A Day: Not all surgeries have lengthy recovery periods. Our Teeth in A Day solution allows doctors to remove and replace missing or broken teeth with dental implants in only one appointment.
- Obstructive sleep apnea: A common and serious medical condition, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causes disruption in air flow, low blood oxygen levels to the brain, and interrupted sleep. This condition causes the tongue to be sucked into the back of the throat, cutting off airflow and reducing oxygen to the brain. During OSA episodes, patients are frequently awakened gasping for breath. Untreated, OSA can lead to other chronic health conditions, such as stroke, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular problems. Surgical intervention may be necessary.
How to Prepare for an Initial Consultation
The first step in addressing an oral condition is to go to a consultation. During the appointment, the surgeon will review dental records, X-rays, test results, and medical history, perform an examination of the problem area, and discuss potential treatment plans.
To effectively provide treatment, it is important the doctor has your complete medical history, including current medications, allergies, previous surgeries, and any past or chronic illnesses. Bring this information with you to the consultation appointment.
Should surgery be determined as the most effective treatment, the procedure will be discussed with you, along with pre-surgery and recovery instructions to follow.
Patients should bring identification, insurance information, dental records and referrals, and recent X-rays to the consultation. If preferred, our staff can obtain this information on your behalf if requested when scheduling the appointment.
