Oral Surgery Services in Fishkill, NY

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the dental services you and your family need at our dental office in Fishkill, NY. That’s why we have an oral surgeon on our team.

An oral surgeon is a specialist who completed dental school and then completed a four-year hospital-based residency program in surgical procedures. Oral surgeons train alongside medical residents in general surgery, anesthesiology, internal medicine, emergency medicine, plastic surgery, and otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat).

Our oral surgeon specializes in:

Wisdom Teeth Removal:

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically come in after age 18. Our oral surgeon may recommend wisdom teeth extractions at our Fishkill office if:

  • Your jaw is not large enough for the wisdom teeth to come in properly.
  • The wisdom teeth are coming through the gums at an awkward angle.
  • The wisdom teeth are damaging the jaw bone or other teeth.

Modern dentistry has made it easier than ever to remove wisdom teeth. If you’re having only one wisdom tooth removed, you may need just a local anesthetic. However, if you’re having more than one wisdom tooth extracted, or if the wisdom tooth or wisdom teeth are impacted (stuck under the gum line), then the oral surgeon may recommend IV sedation or another type of sedative to keep you comfortable during the procedure.

Tooth Extractions:

Our oral surgeon in Fishkill specializes in difficult tooth extractions, including impacted teeth. It is necessary to remove a tooth when dental decay, infection, or an injury is so severe, the tooth can no longer be restored. Tooth extractions may also be needed when one or more teeth are impacting tooth alignment. The oral surgeon may pull a tooth that is preventing another tooth from coming in properly or to make space for orthodontic treatment.

Dental Implants:

If you’re missing a tooth or teeth, ask our oral surgeon about dental implants. The titanium post mimics the roots of a natural tooth to preserve the jaw bone. This keeps other teeth from sliding out of position, maintains facial proportions, and reduces sagging and wrinkles. READ MORE

Oral Cancer Diagnosis & Treatment:

Oral cancer is on the rise, and it’s not just smokers who are affected. If you have a suspicious spot in your mouth, our oral surgeon can perform a biopsy and have the tissue sample tested. Oral cancer treatment has a high rate of success when the cancer is found early.

Pre-Orthodontic Surgery:

Getting braces? Your orthodontist may recommend you to our oral surgeon for pre-orthodontic surgery. This may be needed when one or more teeth need to be extracted to allow for the rest of the teeth to be properly aligned. It may also be needed to expose permanent teeth that are partially or completely below the gum line.

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery:

If you’re getting a denture, your dentist may refer you to our oral surgeon to prepare your mouth to ensure the denture will fit well. Pre-prosthetic surgery services may include extracting natural teeth, building up the underlying bone, building up the gum line, and removing any hard, bony bumps, which are called tori.

TMJ and TMD Treatment:

TMJ refers to the temporamandibular joint, which is the small joint located where the skull and lower jaw meet. It allows the lower jaw to open and close. Temporamandibular Disorder (TMD) refers to a problem with this joint, which can lead to jaw pain, headaches, ear aches, clicking sounds, or the inability to correctly open or close the mouth. Our oral surgeon will evaluate the condition of the joint and determine the best course of treatment, which may involve surgery.
