Maxillofacial Surgery in Apple Valley, Lakeville, and Savage MN: Three Oral/Maxillofacial Procedures We Provide at Dakota Valley

Oral or Maxillofacial surgery is a specialized treatment of injuries, defects, or diseases in the face, jaws, neck, or head. If you are looking for medical help with such maxillofacial injuries, then you can resort to us, at the Dakota Valley. We provide a complete expertise and treatment of the oral and maxillofacial region, including everything from wisdom tooth removal, tooth extractions, to corrective jaw surgery, bone grafting, and even oral cancer treatment.

Here are 3 kinds of common procedures under the maxillofacial treatment that we conduct. Take a look.

  • Tooth Extractions and Removal: One of the most common procedures, tooth extraction, and removal, can occur due to several reasons, such as periodontal disease, broken teeth that cannot be repaired, decayed teeth, impacted teeth, or those about to go for orthodontic treatment. Depending on your situation, our doctors will advise you whether you need tooth removal or extraction, or other alternatives to both.
  • Orthognathic or Jaw surgery: This kind of a surgery is required when both the top and bottom jaws don’t meet properly or the teeth inside cannot fit within the jaw correctly. Orthodontics can straighten the teeth or reposition your misaligned teeth with the help of this surgical procedure, improving your facial appearance and ensuring the correct and proper functioning of your teeth, thereby resulting in a better, healthier, and more functional facial-dental relationship.
  • Bone Grafting: This procedure is done to correct the defects of the jaws, resulting out of tumor surgery, congenital defects, or severe traumatic injuries. The process is often performed using the bone of the patient itself, from the hip, below the knee, or from the jaw. Sinus bone grafts are also used to replace the bone in the posterior upper jaw. Furthermore, this also includes guided bone regeneration or tissue regeneration. To sum it up, this gives you the chance to restore functionality of your oral region and of course, the aesthetic appearance.
