Leaders in Oral & Craniofacial Surgery
Portland Oregon Oral Surgeons
When it comes to your health, it’s important to have confidence in your physicians. As the Northwest’s most specialized medical and surgical practice, we have over 25 years of experience providing unmatched care to our patients. Now that’s something to be confident about.
Impacted & Wisdom Teeth
With advanced training and residencies specializing in oral cavity conditions and associated systemic disease, our oral surgeons perform both routine and highly complex dental procedures for our patients.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The jawbone then bonds with the titanium posts, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
Jaw & Craniofacial Surgery
For individuals born an overbite or under-bite, jaw surgery can offer a solution to the associated functional disabilities. The benefits of jaw surgery can include restoring a person’s ability to eat and chew without difficulty, improve or eliminate joint pain, and restore facial harmony and ideal dental form.
Our surgeons have extensive experience managing patients with severe maxillofacial and head and neck injuries. As members of Legacy Emanuel Hospital’s Level 1 Trauma Team, our surgeons are uniquely qualified to help patients with facial injuries as well as the cosmetic and functional deformities that sometimes result from serious facial trauma.
Head & Neck Cancer Surgery
Our oral & craniofacial surgery procedures help to advance some of the nation’s top research into oral cancers, utilizing state-of-the-art technology, partnering with top research hospitals and creating a unique team of pioneers in the oral and craniofacial surgery fields.
While many oral surgery procedures can be done with standard local anesthetic techniques, several procedures are better performed while our patients are sedated with general anesthetic. All of our surgeons are licensed in dentistry and medicine and have thousands of hours of anesthesia training.
