Oral Surgery for Holladay Utah Patients
Dr. Maxfield and Dr. Partridge perform oral and facial surgery procedures to treat a variety of conditions.
Orthognathic (jaw) surgery is appropriate for aligning the jaws and correcting bite problems, including an open bite and under- or overbite conditions. These procedures help to improve your appearance but also correct functional challenges with biting, chewing and speaking.
We also perform surgery to address significant sleep apnea problems as well as TMJ disorders. For patients expecting a denture prosthesis, we offer pre-prosthetic surgery to smooth and shape the underlying bone. This helps to assure a better denture fit and comfort level.
For patients who have been involved in an accident or suffered from facial trauma, we also provide emergency oral surgery and reconstruction.
Oral Surgeon Providing Wisdom Teeth Removal
If you haven’t had your wisdom teeth removed yet, our surgeons recommend scheduling a consultation to evaluate your oral health.
The wisdom teeth (third molars) are problematic for most patients, crowding the teeth and creating an environment that encourages the growth of harmful bacteria. This can lead to decay and gum disease as well as problems with tooth alignment.
The procedure for wisdom teeth extraction is brief and straightforward for most patients. Extractions are performed in our office and, to ensure your ease, you may be able to choose the form of anesthesia that makes you most comfortable.
The recovery from wisdom teeth removal is brief, allowing you to return to work or school within a few days or less.
Dental Implants for Residents
Dental implants are the most effective way to replace missing teeth. By emulating the structure of a natural tooth, dental implants provide a secure and long-lasting restoration.
To place a dental implant, the surgeon inserts a titanium post below the gum line to act as the replacement tooth’s root. Using a small bone graft to help support the post, a custom crown is attached to the post. The replacement tooth looks, feels and functions just like your natural tooth.
You can use dental implants to replace a single tooth or an entire arch. Using the teeth-in-a-day method, full dental bridges are secured permanently in place using four dental implants. Unlike dentures, this approach is more stable and comfortable – and, ultimately, more cost-effective – than traditional dentures.
