When to See an Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon
If you have complications, one of our general dentists might refer you to Dr. Abunasra. He is a specialist that has the necessary education, training, and experience to deal with all types of concerns.

- Removal of impacted teeth
- Placing dental implants
- Bone grafting
- Restore a broken jaw
- Trauma-related full-face reconstruction

Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, also called third molars, that have partially or fully erupted can often develop decay, gum disease, and pressure inside the mouth. Crowding can occur when they push into adjacent teeth. These extra teeth may cause additional tooth misalignment, and removing them can help you maintain your oral health for the better.
Signs Wisdom Teeth Need to Be Removed
Pain is the most common reason people visit our Windsor, CT dental office to have their wisdom teeth examined. There are some situations where third molars must be removed. These cases are often related to the health of nearby teeth, rather than the integrity of the wisdom tooth.
These are the top reasons to speak to Dr. Abunasra regarding wisdom tooth removal:
- Wisdom teeth that are impacted or pressing against each other cause crowding in your mouth and damage to adjacent tooth structures.
- Periodontitis, which is also known as active gum disease, or tooth decay. Infected wisdom teeth can be removed because they are more susceptible to infection.
- You feel uncomfortable swelling or pressure in your mouth.
- If the wisdom tooth becomes impacted in the jaw or press against vital structures like facial nerves, it’s best to extract it.
- Large cysts and tumors around the tooth/teeth.
- To prevent tooth movement from returning after orthodontic treatment.
- Inadequate space that can lead to bone damage or tooth crowding.
Maxillofacial surgeons have advanced knowledge and expertise in bone health and refined skill in surgical procedures, including surgery within the jaw bone. Dr. Abunasra at New England Dental Center in Windsor, CT, is a member of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and is committed to bringing you and your loved ones the highest standard of care using modern technology.
Injuries that May Require Surgery
Reconstructive Surgery: A traumatic injury such as an athletic or automobile accident can have an impact on your oral anatomy. If you need to have your smile or the area around your mouth reconstructed, you will want someone who is familiar with orofacial anatomy. The procedures will be done in complete confidentiality and at your convenience.
A Broken Jaw: Another common reason for surgery includes a broken or misaligned jaw. Surgery could be required in order to enable proper function and alignment of the teeth. This complex surgery requires precision and experience on the part of a skilled maxillofacial surgeon.
Defects that May Require Surgery
Cleft Palate Surgery: It is possible that certain tissues around the mouth and neck may fail to grow or fuse during fetal development. Cleft palates and lips can cause speech and feeding problems. As children grow and mature, they will need multiple cleft surgeries. Cleft surgery is as vital anatomically for our patients as it is for the emotional well-being of their families.
Early screening is the best way to treat oral cancer, and early detection of signs of disease can make a significant difference in the quality and outcome of patients’ lives. We can arrange for the surgical removal of any precancerous or diseased tissue that has been confirmed by a biopsy. This will help to prevent further spread. To determine the best care plan for you and your cancer treatment options, our dentists will discuss your case directly with your doctor or oncologist.
Preparing for Full and Partial Dental Implants
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best method to replace missing or failing teeth. Implants are the only tooth replacement method to integrate with the jaw bone. They provide unparalleled support and stability, providing more stability than any other tooth replacement option. Our Windsor, CT oral surgeon is skilled in complex surgery including the placement of dental implants. We encourage patients with pre-existing conditions like diabetes or osteoporosis, to consult with our oral surgeon before placing a dental implant, as they may require a higher level of specialized care.
If you have suffered a dental injury, or other trauma, as a result of an accident, such as an auto wreck or sports accident, you should see a dental professional immediately.
