Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Rutgers Health University Dental Associates performs oral and maxillofacial (jaws/face) surgery as treatment for many diseases and injuries; defects in the head, neck, and maxillofacial area; and in the hard and soft tissues of the mouth. Our specialists are experts in the field who provide complete, compassionate care.

Our oral surgeons are on the faculty at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research universities in the nation. Many are active in research and teach about all aspects of oral and maxillofacial medicine, and each brings leading-edge knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.

The most common oral surgeries we perform include dental extractions, implants, wisdom teeth removal, and jaw surgery.

Dental Extractions

Wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding and pain. Our specialists have a wealth of experience guiding patients through surgical extractions and assisting with full recovery.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are often the best choice to replace missing teeth. The implant is a titanium cylinder set in the jawbone to function like a real tooth and can last a lifetime with proper maintenance. Our expert providers will ensure that your implant looks and feels like a real tooth. Even if you have problems with your jawbone due to missing teeth, a bone graft can rectify the problem and make it safe to have a dental implant.

Reconstructive Surgery

Small issues, such as a protruding jaw or problems chewing, can interrupt your life or become more serious if not addressed properly. Our specialists can offer a precise diagnosis and develop a treatment plan for these issues. Our oral surgeons have experience in transforming the appearance of patients, whether facing minor jaw problems or severe disfigurements from birth or trauma.
