What is an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon?

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduating from dental school. As an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Block manages a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Dr. Block practices a full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries, and fractures.

Dr. Block uses digital technology to more accurately diagnose and form an effective treatment plan for your problems.  He uses a cone beam CT scanner to provide a 3-dimensional view of your jaws.  He uses a digital intraoral scanner to provide a picture of your current teeth and planned teeth to efficiently plan your treatment.  At the time of implant placement, Dr. Block uses a dynamic navigation system (X-Nav) to more accurately place implants.  He was the second surgeon in the US to use this device and has published in professional journals demonstrating improved accuracy when using the navigation system compared to freehand approaches.
