Routine visits to your family dentist are fine for routine exams and cleanings. But what about more serious issues affecting complex issues affecting your oral health? That’s where the advanced training and specialized skills of the oral surgeon at Chester Oral Surgery come into play. We diagnose and treat a wide array of conditions for our patients, no matter their age.

Here are some of the most common reasons patients come to us to relieve their pain and restore their oral health:

  • Wisdom teeth that have become impacted (partially emerged), and severely broken teeth are among the complex extractions that oral surgeons are best equipped to handle.
  • Reconstructive surgery to restore function and appearancefollowing facial injuries from accidents or during a sporting event.
  • Jawbone irregularities or misalignments can be corrected through oral surgery to ensure proper function and aesthetics.
  • The placement and integration of dental implants provide a natural-looking, long-term solution for missing teeth.
  • Diagnosing and treating temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders that cause pain and dysfunction.
  • Repairing complex birth defects like a cleft lip or palate.
  • Oral surgery can improve airflow and alleviate sleep apnea symptoms in some cases.
  • Diagnosing and treating oral diseases, such as taking biopsies of suspicious lesions or growths.
  • Addressing jawbone deficiencies through bone grafting procedures to create a strong foundation for dental implants.
  • Maximizing patient comfort during procedures by offering advanced anesthesia options including IV sedation and general anesthesia.
