Specialization in Additional Surgical Procedures

When you or a loved one needs additional surgical procedures, our team at Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Associates offers the specialty care you are seeking. Our specialization allows us to offer a wide variety of surgical procedures, including effective apicoectomy and cleft lip and palate repair. These procedures require advanced training and surgical skill to provide successful results. Our surgeons have extensive medical training in hospital-based settings which allows them to perform these additional surgical procedures with a level of care and skill you won’t find anywhere else in the area.

Apicoectomy Treatment

This additional surgical procedure is used when a tooth that has been treated with a root canal continues to become infected at the tip of the tooth root. If an apicoectomy is not performed, the chance of losing the tooth or a spread of infection is high. Our oral surgeons can carefully remove the infection and the tip of the tooth root, sealing it with a small filling to protect the tooth structure and prevent re-infection. Our oral surgeons have the training and experience to make this treatment as minimally invasive as possible and give your tooth the highest chance of survival.

Did you know that hair follicles can be moved from one area of the body to another. By separating individual hairs or cluster of hairs, Dr. Diepenbrock can move these into a new position on the head, eyebrows, or even the beard.  

Frequently patients are bothered by unsightly moles or nevi. Other skin irregularities and conditions may also be treated to smooth out the skin texture and color. By using state of the art radiofrequency technology, Dr. Diepenbrock can remove skin tags, moles, and other conditions with very minimal to no scaring.  

These are a great addition, or the “icing on the cake” to many facial rejuvenation cases. Cheeks, chin, jawline, temples, and virtually any other region of face can have volume restored with the use of implants. Often times, the incisions are through the mouth so there is no external scaring.

Dr. Diepenbrock can take fat from one area of the body and add it to the face. Common areas treated are the area under the eyes. It is also useful for the lines between the nose and mouth, the temples, cheeks, and jaw line.

A simple procedure to reduce facial fullness in the region below the cheeks. Through an incision in your mouth, Dr. Diepenbrock removes a portion of the fat to slenderize your face and add more definition to the cheeks.

Some patients benefit from removing a portion fat in the neck and face. Liposuction sculpts the face and defines the neck and jaw line.

baby with Cleft Lip The Oral Surgery Group

Gentle Repair of a Cleft Lip or Palate

The repair of a cleft lip and palate is a delicate additional surgical procedure we offer that is primarily performed on children. Cleft lip and palate are birth defects that are often treated within the first year after birth. For a cleft lip, our oral and maxillofacial surgeon is able to trim tissue and sew the lip together with tiny sutures to leave a minimal scar and a natural appearance. For a cleft palate, our surgeon will cover the soft palate with tissue from the roof of the mouth. This may require multiple treatments, but can help prevent speech and infection problems later in life. Our doctors are extremely careful, sensitive, and gentle when performing these treatments on children and are the experts at restoring a natural-looking facial appearance.
