OXFORD MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY INC provides a range of comprehensive oral & maxillofacial care services. We have licensed personnel taking panoramic x-rays, and taking care of each patients' needs. Some of the services we offer are as follows:


Wisdom Teeth (Third Molars) - A tooth that fails to emerge or fully break through the gum tissue is, by definition, "impacted." While this is a common problem associated with third molars, or wisdom teeth, which are the last teeth to develop and erupt into the mouth, other teeth can also become impacted.


Orthodontic Surgery - Often a patient is referred to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for an extraction or another surgical procedure in preparation for orthodontic treatment, such as extraction of over-retained baby teeth or the exposure of unerupted teeth.


Preprosthetic Surgery - Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are experts at preparing the mouth for the placement of a partial or complete denture; ensuring a comfortable fit. Because dentures rest on a bone ridge, it is very important that the bone is the proper shape and size. Occasionally, excess bone must be removed or recontoured before the denture is inserted. In such cases, oral and maxillofacial surgeons may perform one or more of the following procedures:

  • bone smoothing and reshaping
  • removal of excess bone
  • bone ridge reduction
  • removal of excess gum tissue
  • grafting of skin or specialized gum tissue
