Associated Oral & Implant Surgeons is a dedicated team of professionals who strive to provide the best oral and maxillofacial surgical care to our region. We understand how important it is for you, our patient, to feel comfortable and confident while in the care of our expert team. This website is designed to provide you with some information about our practice and the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a dental specialty which requires an additional 4-6 years of hospital-based surgical training following dental school. During their residency, our doctors underwent advanced training in anesthesia, medicine, general surgery and many other areas of dentistry and medicine. Because of this extensive training, oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained to manage a wide range of problems related to the mouth, teeth and jaws. Some of the procedures which our doctors perform are:
- removal of impacted wisdom teeth
- replacement of teeth with dental implants
- removal of diseased teeth
- repair of facial fractures
- bone grafting procedures
- exposure of teeth for orthodontic purposes
- treatment of infections of the mouth and jaws
- treatment of oral soft / hard tissue pathology
- corrective jaw surgery for growth disturbances
- surgery to make dentures fit better
- many other procedures
Many of the above procedures may be performed in our office with either local anesthesia (numbing medicine) with or without intravenous sedation. For the more complex procedures, surgery may be performed in the operating room at a local hospital or outpatient surgery center. We will be happy to discuss these options with you at your consultation appointment.
At Associated Oral & Implant Surgeons, we strive to provide the highest quality care to our patients. Our goal is to deliver the finest care to the citizens of east Tennessee, southwest Virginia and western North Carolina.
