At Reynolds Oral & Facial Surgery, we offer a number of different procedures to improve facial features or correct facial abnormalities. Whether you require reconstructive surgery or cosmetic facial procedures, our team of professionals is here for your needs. The most common skin complaint is wrinkles, followed by acne, blemishes, and age spots. Two factors are involved in wrinkling of the skin: environmental factors and age. Exposure to the sun and smoking are the most common factors for causing wrinkles, otherwise known as rhytids.
By the age of eighteen, the average adult has 32 teeth; 16 teeth in the upper jaw and 16 teeth in the lower jaw. Most jaws can only fit 28 teeth in a healthy way. The four extra teeth that don’t fit are your third molars (3rds), also known as Wisdom Teeth. Although most people develop and grow 32 permanent adult teeth, many times their jaws are too small to accommodate the four wisdom teeth.
Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence. In the past, patients with tooth loss due to genetics, disease, or injuries had to either live with missing teeth, or have dentures.
Orthognathic Surgery (Corrective Jaw Surgery) involves moving the bones of the upper or lower jaw or both.The jaws are lengthened or shortened, moved up or down, in or out, resulting in a more harmonious bite and facial appearance. Orthognathic surgery is needed when jaws and teeth don't meet correctly. Repositioning the jaws so that the teeth meet (occlude) correctly improves jaw joint function and chewing (mastication) ability, and can also improve speech, breathing, sleep apnea, periodontal (gum) health and facial aesthetics.
