At the New York Center for Orthognathic and Maxillofacial Surgery (NYCOMS), our team of expert oral surgeons offers a complete range of oral surgeries for patients ranging in age from newborns to adults. Our primary services include, but are not limited to:
Orthognathic surgery: Also known as corrective jaw surgery, orthognathic surgery is the focus of our practice. We follow a multi-stage process to carefully evaluate your jaw issues and formulate a custom treatment plan for you, usually in conjunction with your orthodontist, in preparation for your surgical procedure. We monitor you postoperatively until you are completely healed and discharged. In addition to adult surgeries, we also perform pediatric and neonatal orthognathic surgeries in tandem with a multi-specialty team of pediatric experts.
Zygoma and dental implants/jaw reconstruction: Jaw reconstruction often requires tooth replacement, as does severe dental decay or trauma. Some patients have strong bone that can accept dental implants right away, while others need either bone grafting or zygoma implants that are anchored in the cheekbones. Zygoma implants are immediate-load, allowing us to place a full fixed arch of upper teeth on the same day.
Craniofacial surgery/alveolar cleft bone grafting/reconstruction: Craniofacial surgery repairs birth defects and trauma to the skull. While it can be performed at any age, it is common in infants between 3 and 12 months of age, particularly those with a cleft lip (opening in the upper lip) or cleft palate (opening in the roof of the mouth). Further surgeries such as alveolar cleft bone grafting may be required over the next several years.
Maxillofacial Pathology: Maxillofacial pathology includes all diseases of the mouth and jaws such as tumors, lesions, salivary gland disease, and even systemic illnesses with oral symptoms. We will carefully evaluate your condition to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment.
Temporomandibular Joint Surgery: TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, is a misalignment of the sliding hinge joint that connects the jawbone to the skull. It can be caused by many factors, and ranges in severity from mild to quite severe. While mild cases often respond to non-surgical solutions, we offer a variety of surgeries for more severe cases, from minimally invasive to open procedures.
