Cosmetic surgery can help you look and feel like your best self. We are committed to cultivating a relaxing environment at Summit OMS. Typical procedures performed at our Warren and Sterling Heights, Michigan location include the following:
We understand that maxillofacial surgery may be an unfamiliar term for you. It comes from Latin root words meaning “jaw” and “face.” Oral surgery in Warren, MI, refers to procedures involving the mouth.
The wisdom teeth are the third set of molars that can consist of one to four teeth. Compared to your other teeth, the eruption of your third molars is delayed and can cause significant problems. We may recommend wisdom tooth removal in Warren and Sterling Heights, Michigan, for the following reasons:
Our recommendation is often to have the wisdom teeth removed early before problems have a chance to advance and while the healing process is more predictable. If necessary, you can also have wisdom teeth removed as an adult.
Decades of wear and tear, sometimes combined with poor dental hygiene, increase the likelihood of tooth loss as you age. Nearly one-third of all American adults aged 65 to 74 have lost all their natural teeth. Dental implants for seniors can restore function and appearance while preserving jaw health.
Tooth loss does not only affect seniors. An estimated 178 million Americans age 20 and older are missing at least one tooth. We perform dental implants in Warren/Sterling Heights, Michigan, on adults of all ages.
While retaining your natural teeth is preferable, it is not always possible. Damage due to trauma or decay may be irreparable. When it is necessary to extract one or more of your teeth, we use modern anesthesia techniques to make it as painless as possible.
Orthodontics alone may not be enough to correct irregularities of the jaws to improve the alignment of the teeth. Repositioning through corrective jaw surgery helps to improve chewing ability, jaw joint function, and facial aesthetics. In addition to orthognathic surgery we also specialize in jaw reduction surgery and double jaw surgery.
Cosmetic surgery involves changing the appearance of the nose through rhinoplasty, the size of the ears through otoplasty, or the shape of the eyelids through blepharoplasty. Cosmetic surgery can also remove fatty tissue with facial liposuction and wrinkles with brow lifts, facial fillers, or BOTOX® injections.
Facial trauma or illness can cause problems in the tissues of the face or neck. Reconstructive procedures are performed to correct them.
Oral pathology includes disorders of the mouth. These can be congenital, such as a cleft palate, or acquired, such as mouth cancer. Our oral pathologists have expertise in diagnosing and treating these conditions.
We offer cone beam CT scans to produce images of the teeth and jaws that are extremely detailed. The cone-shaped beam focuses on the mouth while avoiding unnecessarily high radiation exposure.
At Summit OMS, we have been providing expert oral surgery in Warren, MI, for over 30 years. We would be happy to recommend a treatment course for you and explain the necessary procedures in more detail when you request an appointment.
