While implant placement and wisdom teeth removal are among the most common reasons patients schedule oral surgery in Livingston & Harrison, NJ, our experienced team can also address a wide range of other conditions, such as cleft palates and temporomandibular disorder (TMD). 

We’re a multispecialty practice with state-of-the-art facilities in Livingston and Harrison. We combine tried-and-tested techniques with the latest advances in oral and maxillofacial surgical technology to offer the best services possible. 

What Can an Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon Do For You?

After graduating from dental school, oral surgeons undergo an additional four to six years of training and education to understand the complexities of repairing tissues and bones of the jaw, ears, teeth, and more.

We’re proud to have Dr. Shahid Aziz as our head oral surgeon. He is a Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Rutgers University and has authored or co-authored over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and contributed to multiple books. 

Dr. Aziz is a leader in his field, specializing in facial trauma and reconstruction and orthognathic (ear, nose, and throat) surgery. Here’s just a small sampling of the surgical procedures he can perform:

Safe Wisdom Teeth Removal

Your wisdom teeth are the last set of teeth that develop, and often, they fail to fully emerge from the gum line, if at all. In other cases, they emerge at the wrong angle or crowd other teeth. In either case, tooth removal is usually the best option. Left unaddressed, they can lead to issues with decay, tooth alignment, and the temporomandibular joint.

Sinus Lift Procedures for Implants

Before placing dental implants, sinus augmentation is sometimes necessary. This surgical procedure ensures that there is enough healthy bone in place in the upper jaw to support dental implants.

Facial Trauma and Reconstruction Surgery

Whether suffered during sports, a slip and fall, assault, car accident, or otherwise, facial trauma can quickly lead to further complications if improperly cared for. Jaw, palate, orbital, or cheekbone fractures should almost always be treated by an oral surgeon. As a multispecialty dental practice, our team can also help with cosmetic reconstruction for things such as lost or broken teeth due to facial trauma. 

Oral Cancer Treatment

Around 54,000 Americans are diagnosed with oral or oropharyngeal cancer every year, and roughly half die within five years. Early detection is vital. We recommend performing monthly self-checks in addition to keeping up with regular dental exams and cleanings. Schedule an appointment with our team if you have:

  • White or red patches
  • Abnormal lumps
  • Chronic sore throat or hoarseness
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing

Our team can complete a full exam and perform a tissue biopsy if necessary. If the biopsy is negative, we can also help you determine what’s causing your symptoms. 

TMJ Surgery: Relief from Jaw Pain

Your temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are what allow your lower jaw to move. They are located in front of your ears, where your skull and lower jaw meet. Jaw pain, earaches, and other issues can be a sign of Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). Oral surgery isn’t always necessary to resolve TMD. Our experienced team will create a custom care plan for you which may include dental procedures, orthodontic treatment, or surgical options.

Durable Dental Implants

Dental implants provide a natural-feeling replacement for missing teeth. Our surgeon will surgically place a titanium post into your jawbone to function as an artificial tooth root. Before placing the implant, you may need a bone graft. Missing teeth and gum disease can lead to bone density loss.
