We treat oral cancer and perform oral surgery office Midwood here frequently. Oral cancers happen to many people, most often over the age of 40. Risks for oral cancer are linked to tobacco and alcohol use, as well as HPV, age, diet and sun exposure. Early detection is the best way to treat oral cancer. Besides oral cancers, we provide service as well for removal of wisdom teeth, bone grafting and sinus lifts, biopsies and apicoectomies. We also help patients who are suffering from oral emergencies and who need immediate care.
We also perform dental implants at our oral surgery office Midwood. Dental implants help replace missing teeth by way of a surgically implanted titanium root in the jawbone. After a healing period, an artificial tooth is placed over the site. Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth. After the surgery is performed the patient is then given a healing period of two to three months. Once the implant site has healed, the artificial tooth is then placed over the implant.
