Davis Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery requires up to seven additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. Our oral surgery staff members at Davis OMFS are experienced, certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgical Assistants, and are trained in ACLS, CPR and also in assisting with intravenous (IV) sedation and outpatient general anesthesia.
As an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. Tomaich manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth, and face. Dr. Tomaich practices full scope Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery and management of traumatic facial injuries.
Dental implant placement usually involves two surgical procedures for most patients. First, implants are placed in your jawbone after the area has healed from the tooth extraction. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jawbone. Then the second phase begins. Dr. Tomaich will uncover the implants and attach small posts which will act as anchors for the artificial teeth. Learn more about the dental implant process.
