What Is an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?
The scope of oral surgery practice includes the diagnosis and medical or surgical management of diseases, injuries, and structural abnormalities of the jaws and related facial structures. The range of treatment that an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon can provide depends on his level of training and experience.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are dental specialists who are trained to treat disorders of the jaws and related facial structures. Prior to becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, one must first complete dental school and receive a doctorate degree in dentistry (D.D.S.). An oral and maxillofacial surgeon must then complete either a four-year or six-year accredited residency program to become a certified specialist. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon who completes a six-year program will have received a medical degree by completing medical school and will have completed a one-year medical internship (usually in general surgery).
Our office offers the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery utilizing state-of-the-art technology and pain management techniques to expertly remove wisdom teeth, place implants with precision, and perform skillful dental extractions in addition to sophisticated maxillofacial surgeries such as jaw and facial reconstruction.
Our surgeons have successfully completed a 6-year accredited Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training program and are licensed physicians and dentists. They are board-certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery which is the only specialty board in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery that is recognized by the American Dental Association.

At Abari Orthodontics and Oral Surgery, we offer local anesthesia for simple procedures like minor soft tissue procedures and simple tooth extractions, nitrous oxide sedation with local anesthesia for more involved procedures like wisdom teeth removal and dental implants, or general anesthesia with local anesthesia for all types of oral surgery if that is the patient’s preference.
A facial infection or dental abscess is an infected tooth or an infection under the gums, which leads to all kinds of problems if left untreated. These infections are extremely painful, often making it impossible to perform ordinary activities. Some of the problems they can cause are infection of the surrounding bone, tooth loss, soft tissue and sinus infection, and even life-threatening conditions such as septicemia (inflection of the entire bloodstream) and abscess of the brain. The sooner treatment begins, the better it will be for your teeth, gums, and jawbones.

It is usually preferable to save a tooth through root canal therapy if possible, but sometimes the tooth is too damaged and it is best to extract it. If the tooth is impacted in the gumline (particularly common with wisdom teeth), if there are serious crowding issues, or if the tooth is too damaged, rotted, or loose to be saved with root canal treatment, our doctors may determine that extraction is the best option. After the recovery period is over, it will be time to begin taking the prosthodontic or orthodontic steps needed to fill in your smile.
Some people are lucky enough to have enough room for their wisdom teeth to grow in correctly, while others simply don’t get wisdom teeth in the first place. For those who do have some or all of their wisdom teeth but their jaws don’t have space for them, we may recommend extraction.
Here at Abari Orthodontics and Oral Surgery, we take extra care to make sure that our adult patients are comfortable and anxiety-free. After a consultation, we will recommend that you continue with your wisdom teeth until intervention is absolutely necessary. When it is necessary to remove your wisdom teeth, The doctor will recommend simple and pain-free surgery. Your health is our highest concern.
