Reconstructive Oral Surgery
Unexpected accidents, injuries, and diseases can all cause damage to the face and oral structure. When you find yourself in this situation, seek medical attention as soon as possible. Early treatment is necessary to preserve the appearance and functionality of your smile. At DFW Oral Surgeons, our outstanding team specializes in reconstructive and restorative surgeries. Together, we can skillfully treat oral and facial injuries to help you feel as good as new.
Who Needs Reconstructive Oral Surgery?
Reconstructive surgery may be necessary when you have severe damage to your facial and oral muscles, soft tissues, and bones. Surgery is often needed to restore the shape and appearance of a person’s mouth and face or restore the functionality of their teeth, jaws, and other related structures.
We can use oral surgery to address:
- Missing or broken teeth
- Fractured or broken bones in the jaw and face
- Lacerated soft tissues in the face and mouth
- Damaged oral structures such as nerves, glands, and ducts
- Some disfigurement and scarring
What Services Do You Provide?
At DFW Oral Surgeons, we are proud to offer a wide range of reconstructive surgical treatments. Whether you need a tooth restored or a temporomandibular joint replaced, we are here for you. Dr. Shillingburg and his skilled staff have decades of combined experience in oral surgeries.
If you are missing one or more teeth, we can use dental implants, bridges, dentures, and crowns to restore your smile. Implant-supported prosthetics are more natural-looking and feeling than alternate replacement options. Because implants have an artificial root structure, they can restore your ability to eat, speak, and chew naturally.
If you have experienced trauma to your jawbones, we can use wires or splints to treat injuries and encourage bone growth. Additionally, in the case of severe lacerations to the soft tissues of your face or mouth, we can carefully reconstruct the tissues to minimize any noticeable scarring. We can reconstruct several parts of the face and mouth in order to restore functionality and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

If your condition is severe but non-life-threatening, please contact our office right away, and we will try to find a place for you in our schedule the same day.
