As a patient-first clinic, your absolute comfort is our first priority. At your initial visit, your appointment with your Oral Surgeon begins with a full consultation. During this session, we’ll explain your diagnosis, why surgery is necessary and review your treatment options.
Sometimes, we’re able to perform your surgery right away that very day. However, if you require more complex work, we’ll invite you back for a second appointment. If you are receiving general anesthesia for your surgery, you must have an adult with you to accompany you home.
Please make sure you bring the following to your first appointment:
• Your referral slip
• X-rays from your referring dentist (if applicable)
• A complete list of any medications you are currently taking (including any herbal remedies)

Dental pathology is a specialty within dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases and disorders of the oral and maxillofacial region. This can include conditions such as gum disease, oral cancer, and other infections or abnormalities that affect the teeth, gums, tongue, and other oral tissues.
Dental trauma refers to any injury or damage to the teeth, gums, or other oral tissues that results from an external force or trauma. This can include a variety of accidents or incidents, such as falls, sports injuries, car accidents, and physical assaults. Dental trauma can range from minor chips or cracks in the teeth to more severe injuries that require emergency treatment, such as knocked-out or displaced teeth, broken jaws, or lacerations to the lips, tongue, or cheeks. Prompt evaluation and treatment of dental trauma is important to prevent further damage and ensure the best possible outcome for the affected teeth and oral tissues.
TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which is the joint that connects the jawbone to the skull. TMJ disorders (TMD) are a group of conditions that affect this joint and the surrounding muscles and tissues, causing pain and discomfort in the jaw, face, and neck. Common symptoms of TMJ disorders include jaw pain or stiffness, clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing the mouth, difficulty chewing or biting, headaches, earaches, and neck pain. TMJ disorders can be caused by a variety of factors, including jaw injury, arthritis, teeth grinding or clenching, or misalignment of the teeth or jaw. Treatment for TMJ disorders can include medication, physical therapy, oral appliances, and in some cases, surgery.
An oral surgeon is a dental specialist who performs surgical procedures on the mouth, teeth, and jaws. They can perform a variety of procedures including tooth extractions, dental implant placement, corrective jaw surgery, and treatment of oral cancers.
Oral surgeons must complete a four-year dental degree and then complete a four to six-year surgical residency program. They also must be licensed by their state’s dental board.
Common oral surgery procedures performed by oral surgeons include tooth extractions, dental implant placement, wisdom tooth removal, corrective jaw surgery, and treatment of oral cancers.
Recovery time varies depending on the specific procedure performed, but it can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to fully recover from oral surgery.
Oral surgery can be painful, but most oral surgeons will use local anesthesia and/or sedation to ensure that the patient is comfortable during the procedure.
Oral surgeons may use local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia depending on the procedure being performed and the patient’s needs.
