Oral Services Available at Our Clinic
Some of the services which you can receive at our clinic include:
Resolving Jaw-Related Issues:
Many patients come to us with issues relating to the shape of their jaw, which may be causing them discomfort.
Issues such as difficulty breathing, eating, speaking, and swallowing can be caused by problems relating to the jaw being either too long or too short, and can often be solved using orthodontic appliances such as braces or retainers. However, in some cases, oral surgery to remove part of the upper or lower jaw may be necessary.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ):
Your Temporomandibular Joint is a small joint which is located close to where the lower jaw and skull meet, near the front of the ears. Some patients who are diagnosed with TMJ may experience facial pain and headaches as a result. In many cases joint surgery is needed to resolve the issue.
Ask your oral health professional in Anderson, SC for more information about TMJ and how physical therapies may help alleviate your joint pain.
Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery:
A cleft occurs when a baby is born with an opening in the lip or, in the roof of the mouth.
If your child has been born with a cleft lip or palate, then it is essential to begin working with a pediatric oral surgeon as soon as possible. In most cases, cleft lip repair surgeries will take place when the child is 6 to 12 weeks old, whereas cleft palate repair is typically performed when the child is nine months to a year old.
