What We Treat
Oral cancer is a severe condition affecting around 50,000 people in the U.S. every year. Early detection is paramount for optimal treatment, so be sure to let your dentist or doctor know if you notice any growths or sores in your mouth.
While some sores within the mouth are harmless and will heal independently within a few days, some ulcers and lesions are more severe and require professional attention. Whether you have one sore or several, our team can take a look and make sure it’s nothing serious, such as oral cancer.
If you experience stiffness when opening or closing your mouth accompanied by tenderness, swelling, and overall discomfort, we can help. We deliver treatments to make it easier for you to talk, chew, and laugh.
If you allow gingivitis to go untreated, it can eventually lead to periodontal disease. This is a multifactorial condition characterized by inflammation and loss of periodontal tissue support. Whether you require bone grafting treatment or another surgical solution, our surgeons can help.
While some people are born with macroglossia, this condition can develop due to certain cancers or trauma. The severity level may vary, and treatment is mainly dependent on the root cause of the enlargement.
This is a common congenital condition where the bony plates at the skull base do not close as a baby develops within the womb. We can help correct cleft palate or lip through surgical intervention.
