"We do everything possible in our office to make the patient comfortable."
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons diagnose and treat conditions specifically related to the mouth, teeth, jaws and facial regions.
We are focused on restoring the health, appearance and function of the mouth, jaws and face. We provide a wide range of services including:
- Dental implants
- Dental extractions including wisdom teeth
- Bone grafts
- Corrective jaw surgery
- Oral pathology
- Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain and dysfunction
- Trauma including facial fractures, jaw fractures, soft tissue lacerations and dental injuries
- Cleft lip and palate
- Repair of failed root canals
These procedures require years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training following graduation from dental school. In addition, continuing education is critical in order to remain at the forefront of oral and maxillofacial surgery. Please visit Dr. Skinner's information to learn more.
