Oral Surgery Offices in Tonawanda, Amherst, Lockport & Niagara Falls NY
Northtowns Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, PLLC
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 surgeons, Glen C. Donnarumma, DDS, Steven Vukas, DMD, MDand Tara Halliwell-Kemp, DDS, MD are 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 four highly skilled surgeons. Their expertise allows them to provide a very high quality of care, and their advanced training in anesthesia allows them to provide an extreme level of patient comfort in the safety of their multiple 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.
Call our office for more information about dental implants or to schedule a consultation appointment.
We look forward to meeting you and taking care of your needs.
Welcoming New Patients
Missing teeth over a period of time can cause your jawbone to atrophy, or resorb. This
Your teeth affect your whole body. When they're healthy, you're healthier too. A missing tooth can affect your bite, speech and eating choices. As you rely more on your remaining teeth, you increase the chance they will wear out prematurely, or be damaged or lost.
Dr. Steven Vukas, a native of western Pennsylvania, has been a practicing Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in the Buffalo area since April 2004. Dr. Vukas graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1992.
With an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth, Drs. Donnarumma, Vukas or Halliwell-Kemp can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and predict if there are present or future potential problems. Studies have shown that early evaluation and treatment result in a superior outcome for the patient.
