What is An Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty providing surgical care for the mouth, jaws, and face.  It is unusual in that it is a hybrid specialty combining the professional education of both dentists and medical doctors.  The path to becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, or simply  ‘oral surgeon,’ begins with graduating from dental school. The dentist then attends a four to six year surgical residency in a hospital, learning general surgical techniques alongside other physicians.

While many routine oral issues can be treated by a dentist, there are some that require specialized surgical care. Some of the procedures performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons include:

Furthermore, oral and maxillofacial surgeons are extensively trained in the use of sedation and anesthesia, more so than any other doctors except anesthesiologists. This means that they are able to perform surgeries, such as the removal of wisdom teeth,  on an outpatient basis in their office, without the need for an additional anesthesiologist on staff.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons combine surgical expertise with their knowledge of dentistry to provide comprehensive care for the structures of the jaw and face.

Patient Review By April W

I had a terrible infection from a wisdom tooth removal (by a different surgeon) and landed in bad shape in the hospital! Dr. Klein was the “hospital on call guy” but he helped me through everything in there and continued care in his office until I was finally in the clear! We’re talking weeks here and he does not except my insurance! How often these days can one say about a doctor “he did it because he cares” I can’t say enough about how wonderful these folks are.

Patient Review By Sharon T

Dr. Klein removed my son's wisdom teeth in 2014. In 2017 I needed a molar extraction and implant and was referred to another oral surgeon where I had a terrible experience. Dr. Klein took me on as a patient after the botched procedure but was fair in wanting to give his peer the benefit of doubt; however, after hearing my story, he agreed to continue my treatment to resolution. He is a very kind and patient man with an easy going manner and my blood pressure dropped when he walked into the room. His office staff - regardless their position or training - are extremely kind and the overall atmosphere is quiet and calming. I would never hesitate to refer him.

Patient Review By Tessa N

My overall experience was painless. The nurses were very complimentary and assured me to call anytime with issues I may experience. The procedure was painless and quick. My only regret is that I didn't come to this office sooner for my previous dental work. I will return with any problems or questions I have in the future. Thank you!

Patient Review By Michele C

I had extensive work done over a 16 month span, countless visits and surgeries. Dr. McDonnell and team were outstanding, I made it through a long and difficult process because of the expertise and great care. I am so pleased I chose Dr McDonnell. I had serious problems and it was often one step forward and two steps back, but Dr. McDonnell, with his kindness, gentleness, personality, his skill and experience with implants kept me going. He knew what would work and got us through a difficult case. I was always treated as an individual, and the kindness, caring and compassion always shown by Dr. McDonnell and every member of his staff deserve the ultimate praise. I am so pleased that I chose Dr. McDonnell and would not hesitate to recommend him, I always felt that I was receiving the finest in care.

Patient Review By Christoper B

From the first moment I walked in the door, I was made to feel at ease. This began at the time I made the appointment, as the receptionist made me feel more relaxed with her sincere kindness. The day of my appointment, all the staff took the time and extra effort to make sure I was comfortable. They reasured me when I was nervous and scared. Dr. Klein came in and introduced himself and explained everything to me with compassion and care in a way that I understood what to expect completely. Dr. Klein took all the necessary steps to make sure the procedure was practically pain free. He took the time to explain post operative procedures. He also made sure I knew I could contact him with any questions or concerns. Dr. Klein called with my results and was very informative and caring when talking with me. I am not the type of person to leave comments like this, but felt that Dr. Klein and his staff really deserve this genuine positive feedback!

Patient Review By Nicole

I had an extraction and an implant placed and had a wonderful experience! From the ease of scheduling to the courtesy of the office and the professionalism of the Doctor. Everyone made me feel at ease and the procedure itself was a breeze. I didn't need anything for pain in the days following. Fantastic experience and I recommend this office to everyone looking for an Oral Surgeon. Thank you!

Dental Implants Akron, Stow, Norton OH

Dental implant surgery is, of course, surgery, and is best done by a trained surgeon. Your oral and maxillofacial surgeon has the specialized education and training in the complexities of the bone, skin, muscles and nerves involved, to ensure you get the best possible results.  A 2014 study suggests greater implant success rates when performed by a dental specialist.

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.

Dental implants are changing the way people live. With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. For more information about dental implants or to schedule a consultation appointment, call our office in Akron, OH at Akron Office Phone Number 330-836-2882.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Pain free” does not mean “disease free”

What Are Wisdom Teeth?

Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.
