Oral and maxillofacial surgery can offer you many benefits aesthetically and functionally. You may be able to preserve the health and structure of your jaw, improve the shape and form of your smile and relieve pain caused by various oral dysfunctions. Living without discomfort and with an improved oral composition can improve your self-esteem and help you feel great about flaunting your smile. We hope to help our patients look and feel their very best.
No matter the surgery you choose, there will be a recovery time during which you will be given specific instructions for the care and maintenance of your temporary wound. It is important that you follow these directions specifically to ensure an easy and successful recovery.
