Taking care of your teeth and your oral health is extremely important. Brushing and flossing daily are common habits that can help prevent the buildup of plaque, therefore preventing tooth decay and gum disease. In addition to these at home methods, regular dental visits are also recommended so that more stubborn plaque can be removed. But these regular visits with your dentist can mean much more than that. Our Suffern oral surgeon here at Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery can also help determine whether you exhibit signs of oral cancer, as well.

While regular dentist’s visits can help limit the amount of harmful plaque and bacteria on your tooth enamel and along your gumline, these visits also allow your dentist to better monitor your overall dental health. With regular visits, they will be able to identify any subtle changes more easily, especially if you begin to show signs of oral cancer. While a routine visit to your dentist can tell you whether exhibit any signs, there are some symptoms that you should look out for between visits. These symptoms include white or red patches anywhere in the mouth, any lumps on the lip, tongue or throat, pain when chewing or swallowing, the sensation that something is caught or stuck at the back of your throat, any unusual numbness in the mouth, loose teeth or ill-fitting dentures, any changes in your voice or the development of speech problems, and weight loss. If you experience any of these symptoms then it is a good idea to schedule an appointment with any one of our Suffern oral surgeons, Dr. David Caponigro, Dr. Anthony Pavone, or Dr. Justin Hendi. Upon seeing you, they will be able to give you a proper diagnosis and begin planning for any necessary surgery or treatment.

Taking care of your teeth, gums and mouth is one thing, but also being aware of your day to day oral health is important, too. The smallest signs or symptoms can help you realize when to schedule an appointment. Early detection can help ensure the success of your treatment, and our Suffern oral surgeons at Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery are here to help.

North Bergen Oral Surgeon

North Bergen Oral Surgeon

Orthognathic surgery, also known as corrective jaw surgery, is necessary when a patient’s upper and lower jaws don’t align correctly and/or the person’s teeth don’t meet with the jaws. Orthodontics can correct bite problems when only teeth are involved, but alone, cannot fix jaw problems in certain cases. If the jaws are not aligned properly, often a result of the upper and lower jaws growing at different rates, orthognathic surgery provided by our North Bergen oral surgeons may be necessary. If this jaw problem is not remedied, the patient may experience several problems, which can greatly affect chewing, speech, long-term oral health, and appearance.

Warwick Oral Surgeon

Warwick Oral Surgeon

Although typical orthodontic treatment, such as braces, can correct a problem involving teeth which are misaligned, sometimes the jaws themselves need to be repositioned. If this is the case, then an individual needs to undergo orthognathic surgery in order to align the jaws. At Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, our Warwick oral surgeon offers this service to patients who require it. If you have any questions about orthognathic surgery and are unsure of whether or not it could benefit you, we would be happy to address your concerns.

When the upper and lower jaws do not seem to meet correctly, or the teeth seem as though they do not correctly fit with the jaws, this may be a sign that an individual can be treated via orthognathic surgery. These problems can develop for a variety of reasons, one being the fact that the process of jaw growth is a gradual one, and at times, one section of the jaws will grow more quickly than the other. Traumatic injury to the jaws and birth defects are also factors which can contribute to jaws which are improperly aligned. Patients with improperly aligned jaws often experience problems related to chewing, speech, and appearance. Through the process of orthognathic surgery, however, the Warwick oral surgeon of Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery can correct these issues. We will begin the process by evaluating your condition and determining whether or not you are a good candidate for orthognathic surgery. If we decide that we should move forward with treatment, we will use state-of-the-art computer models to explain the process to you. These models will even allow us to show you the differences in appearance that you will experience once treatment has finished. By using these techniques, we allow your patients to feel the utmost confidence in their treatment.

For years, we at Ramapo Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery have approached our area of expertise with a compassionate, patient-centric approach. If you think that you might need orthognathic surgery to correct a problem with your jaws, schedule an appointment with our Warwick oral surgeon. We’ll gladly take a look at your condition and help you decide if this treatment option could benefit you.

Hillburn Corrective Jaw Surgery

Hillburn Corrective Jaw Surgery

Oral surgery at Ramapo Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery is not simply concerned with the health and functioning of your teeth and gums, but also the health of your jawbone. Working in conjunction with orthodontists, our oral surgeons often perform orthognathic surgery to correct both minor and major skeletal and dental problems related to a jawbone abnormality. Whether you’ve endured a traumatic injury to your jaw or the abnormality stems from a growth or birth defect, our Hillburn dental surgeons can reconstruct your upper and lower jaws to create a better bite and remedy many classifications of malocclusion.

Hillburn Orthognathic Surgery

Hillburn Orthognathic Surgery

Malocclusion refers to the improper coming together of the teeth and these issues can often be corrected with orthodontics. However, when orthodontic treatment has not been effective in correcting your bite, our oral surgeons can perform orthognathic surgery to improve tooth and jawbone alignment. Though you may assume orthognathic surgery is a cosmetic procedure, one that will present patients with a more aligned and nicer looking smile, there are comprehensive benefits to jaw surgery at Ramapo Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery. The malocclusion of the teeth can seriously harm the function and warp the visual appearance of the teeth and face. Over time, as you’re constantly chewing, drinking, and speaking, the misaligned upper and lower teeth can be grinding and clenching improperly, resulting in unnatural and rapid tooth wear. This happens because the pressure on each tooth is not spread evenly, causing the facial muscles to interact differently and teeth to place pressure on the gums. Additionally, this pressure and early wear can cause teeth to become loose in their sockets, as well as weaken the protective enamel. Lastly, patients with the malocclusion of teeth may have difficulty speaking, chewing, and swallowing food. For all these reasons – tooth wear, chronic jaw pain, loose teeth, and tooth sensitivity – patients should receive orthognathic surgery at Ramapo Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery to correct their overbites, underbites, and misaligned jaws. Together with your primary dentist and orthodontist, our Hillburn oral surgeons will construct a comprehensive treatment plan, which outlines how corrective jaw surgery will influence proper jaw function and the cosmetic appearance of your entire face.

To learn more about the benefits of orthognathic surgery, come visit Ramapo Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery for a consultation with our oral surgeons.

One of the more common services we provide is orthognathic surgery or correction/reconstructive jaw surgery. If your face appears out of balance, if you’ve suffered a traumatic injury that has altered your facial shape, or if your jaws have grown irregularly, your primary dentist may refer you to our Suffern dental surgeons for orthognathic surgery. Though orthodontics can straight teeth and fix overbites or underbites, they cannot change the way your upper and lower jaws fit together. Because the way your facial bones develop affects your oral health, facial appearance and proportion, having corrective jaw surgery at Ramapo Oral & Maxillo-Facial Surgery can vastly improve how well you bite, chew and speak. If you have difficulty chewing or biting food, difficulty swallowing, chronic jaw pain, unbalance facial appearance, or excessive wearing of teeth, then come see our oral surgeons for a orthognathic surgery consultation. Jaw growth is a gradual process and in some instances the lower and upper jaws will grow at different rates, creating the aforementioned problems, as well as negatively impacting speech and chewing function.

Following a consultation with our trusted oral surgeons, if you are a candidate for corrective jaw surgery, our doctors will work closely with your primary dentist and orthodontist during your treatment.
