What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and defects of the mouth, jaw and facial areas. The Latin root words Ora (mouth), maxilla (jaw), and faci (face), explain the long, foreign-sounding name.

A board Certified Surgeon must complete an oral and maxillofacial training program of at least three years following dental school. The program must be approved by the American Dental Association. Following completion of the program, the doctor must pass a rigorous oral and written exam administered by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery to be certified as a Diplomate.

All of our surgeons are board certified.

Dental Implants in Columbus

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.

Patient Review from Morris L

Dr. Zwickey is an incredibly skilled compassionate surgeon. I have had repeated biopsies and dysplasia (precancerous) lesions. I am certain that his incredibly good care is why I have not had to deal with a worse outcome. I very literally consider him a Godsend. His insight with early diagnosis, and his skill in treating the condition has been a great blessing to me. Even beyond insight and skill he is a truly caring and committed person. I could not recommend him more highly.

Patient Review from Billie M

Couldn't ask for a better experience. Would definitely use them again. As I said above they all made me feel safe & comfortable. Answered all my questions. Didn't make me feel like I was putting them out by asking questions. I was nervous & they took the time to make me feel comfortable.

Patient Review from Kathy F

I was really impressed by this facility. The first interaction, via phone call was very professional and knowledgeable of the procedure. I had my procedure done today. From check-in to when I left was a pleasant experience. I was nervous upon arrival, but Schylar, and Dr Zwickey were wonderful and the procedure was finished before I knew it!

Patient Review from Gwyn N

Dr. Swickey and his staff are a top-notch medical practice! I have had two previous tooth extractions/implants with them and was so pleased with their work that I returned when I developed another painful, aching molar that could not be saved. The earliest appointment they had available for pulling the tooth was two weeks after discovering the problem. However, after just a week, I experienced severe pain while eating with a loose crown over the affected tooth. They immediately moved up my appointment and brought me in the very next morning to do the tooth extraction. And they called me that afternoon to make sure I was doing O.K. - first class patient service! Dr. Swickey and his staff are amazingly professional, extremely competent, and most pleasant to deal with. I would not go to anyone else for a tooth extraction and especially for an implant.

Patient Review from Gabriela J

oral surgeon! I went two weeks ago to have all four of my wisdom teeth removed. I was super scared about this. It was my first time to experience surgery in general but the staff and Dr. Allen did not make my surgery difficult. They made sure I was relaxed before putting me under and the surgery only took about 45 minutes. Dr. Allen did an amazing job! I was able to recover with no problem while taking meds and following all post-operative instructions. I highly recommend them if you need your wisdom teeth removed. Thank you to Dr. Allen & his staff for making my wisdom teeth removal journey great!
