Oral Surgery and Oral Cancer Screening
Oral surgery can sometimes be necessary for tooth extractions, wisdom teeth removal, placement of dental implants, and other procedures. Many of these procedures can be performed right here in our office by Dr. Robert Rioseco. We also perform oral cancer screenings to identify problems within the mouth that could turn into serious health risks. Early detection and treatment is key to helping patients reduce the risk of developing life-threatening health problems and aesthetic issues caused by oral cancer.
Oral surgery can be performed to treat gum disease, extract problem teeth, and improve a number of other dental issues. It is also a necessary component in restorative dentistry procedures such as dental implants. Dr. Rioseco has had extensive training in the area of oral surgery. Having completed a residency at New York Medical College, Dr. Rioseco has an extra year of training in a hospital setting, and is highly skilled with these procedures. Dr. Rioseco is proficient in the evaluation and team approach to more complicated surgical procedures such as:
- Dental implant placement
- Maxillofacial surgery
Also, Dr. Rioseco can often perform a number of minor surgical procedures right here at The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, including:
- Tooth extraction
- Bone grafting
- Periodontal surgery
Dr. Rioseco is committed to offering patients exceptional oral surgery procedures and successful results. Our entire team focuses on safety and quality, in addition to making your treatment as comfortable as possible.
Oral Cancer Screening
Studies have shown that one person every hour dies of oral cancer each day in the United States. Early detection from an oral cancer screening, followed by treatment, can significantly increase the chances of survival from this life-threatening disease. At The Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, we provide oral cancer screenings and can perform preliminary biopsies for suspicious lesions right here in the office. It is incredibly important to have regular oral cancer screenings in order to find and address any problems as early as possible.
