At the Los Angeles Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, our board-certified surgeons have over 60 years of collective experience treating a wide range of oral health issues. Supported by state-of-the-art technology and world-class facilities, our team can take on even the most complex and challenging cases. No matter the specifics, our goals are always to put patient comfort and safety first, all while maximizing your results.
Our surgeons offer a number of services to provide both functional and aesthetic restoration.
Deformity or misalignment of the jaw can result in chronic pain, difficulty chewing, and premature dental wear and tear. Our surgeons have proven track records performing corrective jaw surgery, providing full aesthetic and functional restoration even for the most complicated cases.
Sleep Apnea Surgery
Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening condition characterized by intermittent breathing problems throughout the night. There are a number of potential treatments for sleep apnea, but for advanced cases, the most effective treatment may be surgical intervention.
Facial trauma may result from a car accident, a sports accident, or an accident in the workplace. The effects can include soft tissue damage, a broken or misaligned jaw, and more. Our surgeons have extensive track records repairing facial trauma, restoring both function and aesthetics back to the jaw.
TMJ disorders refer to a family of problems that involve the jaw joints. TMJ symptoms can include chronic pain, difficulty chewing, persistent headaches, and more. A number of therapies exist for TMJ pain. For advanced cases, surgery may provide the most complete, lasting relief.
Jaw in a Day
We are proud to provide unique and innovative solutions for our patients, including the groundbreaking Jaw in a Day procedure. For patients who need extensive jaw corrections, we can harvest bone, customize it, and place it in the patient’s mouth with teeth already in place.
Tooth loss is often accompanied by bone loss, which can complicate dental restoration. Without sufficient bone tissue, it may be challenging to anchor dental implants. Bone grafting can correct this problem, regenerating bone tissue where it is needed the most.
Cleft Lip & Palate
Cleft lips and cleft palates are common birth defects, and they can result in both aesthetic and functional difficulties. Our surgeons are experienced in addressing these deformities via a range of surgical techniques, including bone grafting.
For patients experiencing tooth loss, dental implants represent the most secure and lasting form of restoration. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts secured into the jawbone to provide a steady foundation for custom replacement teeth. Dental implants, when well-maintained, can last a lifetime.
Full Mouth Restoration
For patients who have lost all or most of their teeth, we are pleased to provide full-arch restoration. Unlike dentures and bridges, full-arch restoration offers a permanent solution, allowing you to enjoy a confident smile without major lifestyle changes.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Most of us have wisdom teeth that erupt during our teens or twenties. These teeth typically lead to complications, and the best approach is often simply to remove them. Our surgeons are highly experienced in performing wisdom teeth removal on patients of all ages.
Many patients come to us because they have noticed unidentifiable growths in their mouths. These can sometimes include tumors but are just as often benign cysts and lesions. Our surgeons are here to identify and diagnose these growths and recommend treatment when needed.
The canines, also known as eyeteeth, sometimes become impacted, which means they do not erupt but rather remain trapped under the gum tissue. Our surgeons can safely and expediently provide a path for your canines to grow into their normal, healthy position.
Our state-of-the-art facilities allow us to offer full in-house anesthesia options, ensuring both the comfort and the safety of our patients. We are always happy to discuss the sedation options available for any procedure.
At the Los Angeles Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we are dedicated to cutting-edge technology, including 3D imaging that helps us to accurately assess each patient’s oral health and plan custom treatment plans.
Facial Bone Contouring
Facial bone contouring surgery creates a balanced facial proportion by narrowing and softening angular lines. Procedures include V-line surgery, cheekbone and chin reduction, masseter reduction, and more, performed by skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Recovery time is around three weeks, and the results are permanent.
