Oral surgery has vastly improved over the last few decades. Thanks to groundbreaking techniques and cutting-edge technology, our surgical options are safer, faster, and more effective than ever before. We offer many anesthesia options including numbing medication (local anesthesia), laughing gas (nitrous oxide), and going to sleep (IV sedation/general anesthesia) to provide the most comfortable experience possible. If you need oral surgery, you've come to the right place! Pacific Maxillofacial Center LLC specializes in a variety of surgical procedures that will improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, erupt much later than our other permanent teeth. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. Because they are the last to come in, they can create problems for your existing teeth. Wisdom teeth can increase the risks of cavities, gum disease, infection, overcrowding, or even the formation of cysts or tumors. We may recommend wisdom teeth removal to prevent or correct these issues.
We are specially trained to perform dental extractions, including the simplest to the most complex tooth removals. The most common indications for tooth removal are treatment or prevention of pain or infection. We may also remove teeth as part of a larger restorative plan to replace teeth. We assess each case individually, and always weigh the risks vs. the benefits of tooth removal.
Some people have dental problems so severe and widespread that they need multiple surgeries. In this case, we may recommend a full mouth restoration. As the name suggests, a full mouth restoration refers to the rebuilding of all teeth in a patient's mouth. Because we specialize in surgical procedures, we may work with other specialists to provide you with optimal results.
Successful implant treatment requires a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw. We may recommend a bone graft if your bone is too thin or too soft to support an implant. A graft can help restore deteriorated bone, and give you a second chance at implant treatment!
Orthognathic, or corrective jaw surgery, can be used to address some minor or major irregularities in the jaws. Orthognathic surgery can help correct problems with chewing, esthetics, speech, and even pain.
Oral pathology refers to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases that affect your oral and maxillofacial region. We are specially trained to assess and surgically treat many diseases of the mouth and jaws.
