Bone Cyst & Tumor Treatment
Wisdom teeth often need to be removed because they cause cysts to develop on the bone around them, which can easily be identified on dental X-rays. Aside from removing these third sets of molars, we can simultaneously take out any cysts. Should any tumors form on the jawbone, we can remove those as well to prevent complications down the line.
Skin Cyst & Tumor Treatment
Do you have cysts or tumors in your mouth, jaw, or neck region? They can be quite painful and unsightly. Luckily, you don’t have to live with them for the rest of your life. You should make an appointment with our team if you notice a growth on or near your lips, cheeks, gums, or throat. We can remove it with a short surgical procedure that only takes one appointment to complete! During your appointment, we’ll diagnose what the growth is to determine if any other treatment is needed.
Salivary Gland Cyst & Tumor Treatment
A healthy smile needs to have fully functioning salivary glands. Unfortunately, there are certain conditions that can cause you to develop cysts and tumors, leading to discomfort and decreased saliva production. If that happens, you may suffer from dry mouth and an increased risk of cavities and gum disease. To address the issue, we’ll remove any growths on your salivary glands to get them back to normal.
Treating Oral & Maxillofacial Infections
Oral infections are incredibly dangerous because the bacteria can easily enter the bloodstream and travel to other parts of the body, causing severe damage. Luckily, our practice has the technology and expertise to identify these infections early on. That way, we can surgically remove dead tissue to keep the problem from spreading. We’ll do everything we can to restore your oral health while safeguarding your overall health!
