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 Kerri B

I never thought I'd say it's a joy to visit a dental office. That was the case here. Dr. Zwickey and his team are a well-oiled machine. Everyone was very nice and professional. They made me feel welcome, comfortable and confident with their services. Their protocols made for a safe, painless and stress-free procedure in having my wisdom tooth extracted. Also, it was convenient being able to complete all the paperwork online.

Patient Review from Michele M

Dr. Zwickey, along with his caring staff, could not have been any kinder to my 89-year-old mother, who has always suffered with severe anxiety when it comes to dentists. In fact, I honestly can’t remember when she ever visited one. Their overall professionalism put us both at ease, and she has recovered completely in less time than was anticipated. We would both highly recommend West Georgia Oral Surgery to our friends and family.
