Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires up to 6 additional years of hospital based surgical and anesthesia training. The specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery extensively trains surgeons to treat a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Although Dr. Stanton, Dr. Manon, Dr. Ponte and Dr. Tong are trained to practice the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging in facial trauma and corrective jaw surgery, their primary focus is the treatment of the dento-alveolar complex. The dento-alveolar complex is the area of the face that pertains to the teeth and supporting bone and gingiva (gums). This is the most commonly associated area of treatment with oral and maxillofacial surgery. Our doctors specialize in the placement of dental implants, extraction of teeth in preparation for dental implants, extraction of wisdom teeth, treatment of pathology of the mouth and reconstruction or rebuilding of the bones prior to dental implant placement.
Our staff is trained in assisting with I.V. sedation and general anesthesia within our office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during surgery with state of art equipment. Although each doctor provides over 900 anesthetics a year in our office, arrangements can be made to provide a board certified anesthesiologist to provide your care within our facility.
The surgical staff at Northeast Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery are experienced, oral and maxillofacial surgical assistants, who assist in administration of I.V. sedation and surgery. We also have a trained registered nurse (RN) to assist in surgery. Our assistants are certified in infection control, have annual OSHA training and are CPR certified. Our surgical team takes great pride in providing a positive experience for all of our patients being treated within our facility.
