Welcome to Northtowns Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral surgeons, also known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, are dental specialists who have not only completed 4 years of dental school, but have also completed at least four years of surgical hospital residency.
Our oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Glen C. Donnarumma, DDS, is trained to treat and diagnose defects, injuries and diseases of the mouth, jaw, teeth, neck, gums and other soft tissues of the head. Wisdom teeth removal, dental implants and removal of tumors and cysts are problems that are commonly treated by our highly skilled surgeon. His expertise allows him to provide a very high quality of care, and his advanced training in anesthesia allows him to provide an extreme level of patient comfort in the safety of his two locations.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
The procedure to place an implant takes 30 to 60 minutes for one implant and only 2 to 3 hours for multiple implants. The number of appointments and time required, vary from patient to patient. The surgeon will bring great precision and attention to the details of your case.
Over a period of time, the jawbone associated with missing teeth atrophies and is reabsorbed. This often leaves a condition in which there is poor quality and quantity of bone suitable for the placement of dental implants.
