Oral and maxillofacial surgeons specialize in problems related to the mouth, teeth, and facial regions. Dr. Straw is a trusted oral surgeon who is equipped to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients with a variety of oral health needs at all of our offices in El Dorado Hills, Placerville, and Irvine, CA.
Our surgeons can secure a permanent denture using dental implants in one or both arches of teeth, resulting in a brand new, fully functioning smile.
Dental implants replace one or more missing teeth, including the root, with results that are functional and natural-looking.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Removing wisdom teeth during the late teen years prevents future problems from arising, such as dental overcrowding, misalignment, or damage to nearby teeth.
Corrective Jaw Surgery
By repositioning the jaws, orthognathic surgery alleviates facial pain, corrects bite issues, and creates facial symmetry.
Treatment following a traumatic incident requires care and precision, and our surgeons ensure facial structures properly heal and regain function.
Bone grafts promote new bone to grow in a specific area where bone loss has occurred or to help support a future dental implant.
Sometimes it's necessary to extract badly damaged or decayed teeth in order to protect the health of your remaining teeth.
Exposure of Impacted Teeth
An impacted canine tooth means that it is stuck beneath the gums and requires surgical assistance to properly erupt into the dental arch.
Any changes to the lining of the mouth could indicate a pathological process, the most serious being oral cancer, and should be evaluated by an oral surgeon.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders cause pain, locking, or clicking in the jaw joint and can be treated both surgically and nonsurgically.
