Our team of trained and board certified oral surgeons is proud to offer a range of services to patients in Woodbury, New Jersey. We understand the ways that painful and problematic oral conditions can affect your confidence and daily routine. For decades, Lanzi Burke Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons has focused on exceptional patient care, comfort, and compassion.
Several issues involving the mouth, jaw, and facial region require the skilled assistance of an oral surgeon, including wisdom teeth extraction, jaw misalignment, dental implants, and sleep apnea surgery. These common problems can lead to other more serious and long-term issues for patients who leave them untreated. While the idea of seeing an oral surgeon may seem daunting, our team will ease your mind and are happy to discuss the procedures we safely provide on a regular basis.
What Problems Require the Care of an Oral Surgeon?
Some problems that require you to see an oral surgeon are listed below.
Orthognathic surgery, or corrective jaw surgery, may be necessary if your oral health, daily function, or physical appearance is negatively affected by problems that cannot be fixed with other treatment methods. Our Woodbury oral surgeons regularly treat patients who have suffered jaw damage as the result of an accident or who may have been born with an irregular bite.
We offer safe surgical treatment options to help correct abnormalities in the teeth, jaws, or facial bones. It is especially important for patients to undergo orthognathic surgery if these problems cause difficulties with speaking, chewing, eating, sleeping, and other routine activities. In addition to making daily functioning easier and more comfortable, orthognathic jaw surgery can help improve a patient’s oral health and physical appearance.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Even though the mouth is designed to hold only 28 teeth, the average adult has 32 teeth by the age of 18 years old. The four wisdom teeth are the last to erupt in the mouth and can cause a host of issues for patients. Poorly aligned or impacted wisdom teeth can lead to overcrowding, cysts, infections, and gum disease. Fortunately, wisdom teeth removal by an experienced oral surgeon will usually resolve these common problems.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious medical condition in which a patient experiences disrupted sleep and low blood oxygen levels. Repeated cycles of decreased oxygenation can lead to dangerous cardiovascular problems and high blood pressure.
Symptoms of OSA include snoring, excessive daytime sleepiness, headaches, difficulty concentrating, and depression. In some cases, surgery is required to effectively and safely treat OSA. A knowledgeable oral surgeon can discuss surgical treatment options that are optimal for your particular case.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) controls your ability to speak, eat, and swallow without discomfort or difficulty. If the TMJ becomes damaged or diseased, it can be a painful and inconvenient experience.
Teeth clenching or grinding, arthritis, stress, dislocation, or other structural problems in the jaw can all lead to serious TMJ pain. Early detection and treatment is important, as some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions.
Our Woodbury oral surgeons take the time to fully explain all treatment options and offer the following types of TMJ surgical procedures:
- Arthroscopy/arthrocentesis: These procedures involve fluid injections into the jaw joint in order to reduce inflammation and pressure. Reducing stiffness and pain in the TMJ gives the jaw greater range of motion and comfort.
- Joint restructuring: Joint restructuring involves the smoothing of cartilage. The procedure can also provide artificial joint replacement for patients with more serious problems, such as badly deteriorating or damaged joints.
- Soft tissue repair: This is for people with tissue damage. The procedure will tighten up stretched joints and ligaments.
Teeth in a Day
We offer a wide range of dental implant options, including Teeth in a Day for patients ready to make an immediate change. Our oral surgeons offer cutting edge technology that reduces chair time, discomfort, and makes it affordable for you to get your smile and confidence back. Teeth in a Day allows our patients the opportunity to have a full set of temporary but fully functional teeth that look and feel natural in just one appointment.
What to Expect At Your Initial Consultation
Ideally, you should bring a photo ID, insurance cards, copies of referrals or related insurance forms, and any recent X-rays to your first appointment. Our staff is happy to help obtain any prior records on your behalf as well.
An oral surgeon will review any available records, test results, X-rays, as well as your medical history. It is important for your doctor to have a full understanding of your medical history before any procedure, including past or chronic illnesses, any previous surgeries, allergies, and current medications.
Your oral surgeon with then perform an examination of your mouth, focusing on the problem area, followed by an explanation of your diagnosis and treatment options. If it is decided that surgery is the best option, your surgeon will discuss the procedure, surgical instructions, and aftercare expectations.
