Oral and maxillofacial surgeons receive extended training in their specialty and continue to expand their knowledge over their career.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons receive extended training in their specialty, earning a four-year graduate degree after completing at least four years of oral and facial surgery residency. This area of expertise covers surgery and treatment of diseases, injuries and deformities, and the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region (head, face, mouth, teeth, gums, jaws, and neck.)
Wisdom tooth extraction is probably the most common Oral Surgery procedure; however, oral surgeons treat a variety of issues, from repairing facial trauma to oral cancer detection and removal. Drs. Bukzin and Friend are experienced in jaw reconstruction, facial cosmetics, and dental implants as well. The doctors attend numerous continuing education courses each year enabling them to provide the most innovative and up to date techniques possible.
