As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Drs. Butts, Benian, Johnson, Jabero and Noordhoek manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. They practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. They diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.
Dental Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Dental Implants provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. The extraction of Wisdom Teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum, and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone.
Orthognathic Surgery (Jaw Surgery) is needed when jaws don't meet correctly and/or teeth don't seem to fit with jaws. People who can benefit from Orthognathic Surgery (Jaw Surgery) include those with an improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly.
