Our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) is a branch of surgery specializing in treating and diagnosing injuries and diseases located in hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) regions. OMS surgeons are trained in both medicine and dentistry so they can treat oral issues such as impacted teeth and facial trauma, as well as different benign pathologies. Working alongside our Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Dr. James R. Eckstein, Dr. Brian K. Oleksy, Dr. Jason B. Gile and Dr. Derek J. Havas, is a team fully trained in assisting with IV sedation and general anesthesia. Of course, this all takes place in our modern, state-of-the-art facilities, where patients are monitored both during and after all surgical procedures.

Oral and Facial Surgery Procedures

For patients who suffer from gum disease or tooth decay, we offer dental implants to restore your smile and take care of serious oral health issues such as advanced periodontal disease. In the event a patient does not quality for dental implant placement, bone grafting is an alternative. We offer major and minor bone grafting to repair jaw defects, as well as various other procedures such as a sinus lift or ridge expansion. If patients suffer from impacted teeth, we can perform wisdom teeth removal, a procedure that takes under 1 hour. We also provide impacted tooth surgery for teeth that cannot erupt. For patients who have suffered facial trauma, we can treat various injuries such as knocked-out teeth, fractured jaws, and facial lacerations. Finally, for patients seeking a more cosmetic procedure, we offer BOTOX®, which provides dramatic results that can reverse common aging effects.
