Oral surgery has vastly improved over the last few decades. Thanks to groundbreaking techniques and cutting-edge technology, our surgical options are safer, faster, and more effective than ever before. If you need oral surgery, you've come to the right place! Placentia Oral Surgery specializes in a variety of surgical procedures that will improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
Our wisdom teeth are not the only ones that can create problems. Some teeth can become impacted or infected due to eruption issues. Young Jun, DDS, MD, FACS may recommend a tooth extraction to help alleviate painful symptoms after other treatments have been exhausted.
At Placentia Oral Surgery, we aim to make necessary dental treatment and surgeries as safe and painless for you as possible. Regardless of your surgery type, we will make sure to discuss with you the proper sedative or anesthetic to fit your needs. But it is just as important to make an action plan with you for how to maintain the health of your mouth after surgery is completed.
Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, erupt much later than our other permanent teeth. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 25. Because they are the last to come in, they can create problems for your existing teeth. We may recommend wisdom teeth removal to prevent or correct these issues.
Much like a bone graft, a gum graft can help regenerate crucial tissues. We may recommend a gum graft to address severe instances of gum recession. The type of gum graft you receive depends on the severity and location of the recession.
Successful implant treatment requires a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw. We may recommend a bone graft if your bone is too thin or too soft to support an implant. A graft can help restore deteriorated bone, and give you a second chance at implant treatment!
Orthognathic, or corrective jaw surgery, can be used to address some minor or major irregularities in the jaw. Your TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, is one of the most complex and fragile joints in the body. Problems with your TMJ can prevent you from using your jaw properly while yawning, speaking, and eating. Orthognathic surgery can help correct problems with your TMJ and alleviate painful symptoms.
We aim to repair a cleft lip via surgery within the first year and a half after the child is born. Some children will need further surgeries when they're older. Surgery can not only repair the child's face, but it can fix his speech, hearing, breathing, and language development as well.
A sinus lift is an operation that corrects for improper sinus placement. We want to add bone to your jaw where your molars and premolars are located. This places bone between your jaw and your sinuses on either side of your nose. In order to achieve this, we move the sinus membrane up to make room for the bone that we plan to add. Altogether, once this procedure is completed, we can then proceed to talk about getting you dental implants that you would not have been able to use before.
Cosmetic surgery is designed to improve the function and appearance of your teeth and gums. The type of cosmetic treatment you receive depends on your needs and desires. Surgical treatment for cosmetic reasons can sometimes include gum re-contouring and implant placement.
If you experience dental trauma be sure to schedule an emergency appointment as soon as possible. Injury or trauma to the face can result serious problems for your oral health. If one of your teeth becomes loose or knocked out, you may need oral surgery.
If you have experienced any facial traumas or conditions that affect your face, mouth, or jaw, we have the knowledge and ability to help you fix them. We have seen jaw deformities, temporomandibular joint disorders, and many complicated malocclusions that we have been able to effectively improve or fix through facial trauma surgery. We recommend you come in for an appointment if any of this sounds familiar, and we can set you up with a treatment plan for any dental issue you would like to address.
Some people have dental problems so severe and widespread that they need multiple surgeries. In this case, we may recommend a full mouth reconstruction. As the name suggests, a full mouth reconstruction refers to the rebuilding of all teeth in a patient’s mouth. Because we specialize in surgical procedures, we may work with other specialists to provide you with optimal results.
Oral pathology refers to the diagnosis and study of problems that affect your oral and maxillofacial region. The goal of oral pathology is to cure oral diseases with causes that are not initially apparent. Once we determine the exact causes of a problem, we can develop a more precise treatment plan.
Platelet Rich plasma (PRP) is a relatively new approach to tissue regeneration. PRP allows us to take advantage of the healing properties in your blood by isolating the growth platelets. This makes it immensely beneficial following a bone graft. It can also be an excellent tool for the regeneration of soft tissues.
Sleep apnea is defined as the repeated cessation of breath during sleep. In some cases, sleep apnea can be a potentially life-threatening disorder. Severe cases of sleep apnea often require surgical intervention.
The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ for short, is one of the most complex joints in the body. This complex series of ligaments, muscles, discs, and bones serve as a hinge-like mechanism that connects the upper and lower jaws. In other words, our TMJ allows us to move our lower jaw up, down, and side-to-side. Any problem that prevents the TMJ from working properly is known as a TMJ disorder or TMD.
At Placentia Oral Surgery, we provide cutting-edge, innovative treatments for the TMJ. One of our treatments, which has grown increasingly popular in recent years, involves administering Botox. A Botox injection is a safe and effective way to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with TMD.
