Oral Surgery Services in Hudson Valley, NY

We strive to make it as easy as possible for you and your family to receive the dental care you need, all under one roof. That’s why several of our Family Dental Group practices have an oral surgeon on staff.

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:

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. Dental implants can be topped with a crown or used to support a bridge or denture.

Wisdom Teeth Removal:

Wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that typically come in between the ages of 18 and 25. Our oral surgeon may recommend wisdom teeth extractions 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.

Typically, the wisdom teeth extractions can be done right in the comfort of our own offices. Our oral surgeon is training in sedation dentistry and will ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure.

Tooth Extractions:

Our oral surgeon 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.

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.

Schedule an Oral Surgery Consultation

The first step to finding out how oral surgery may help you is to schedule a consultation with our oral surgeon at the Family Dental Group office closest to you. No matter which service you need, you can depend on us to keep you as comfortable as possible during the procedure by using the type of anesthetic or sedation that is best suited for you and your situation. After your procedure, we’ll send you home with easy-to-understand instructions to ensure your recovery is smooth.
