Costello Oral Surgery Associates has provided personalized attention for your oral and maxillofacial surgery needs since 2003 in three convenient locations in Northern New Jersey. Oral and maxillofacial surgery services include techniques to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention. Diagnosis and treatment of facial pain, injuries, fractures, and oral pathology are part of the scope of our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgical specialty practice.
Dental Implants: Dental implants are widely used to replace missing teeth and are made of biocompatible titanium that replaces a tooth’s root and provides a secure foundation for restorations ranging from crowns to fixed bridges to implant-supported dentures.
All-on-Four®: When appropriate, an exciting option for replacing a full arch of missing teeth (upper jaw, lower jaw or both) in one day is a concept design known as “All-on-Four” where all remaining teeth are all removed and 4 implants are placed to support a new set of teeth in one day. In most cases, your new set of teeth can be placed the same day your teeth are removed.
Bone Grafting: Major and minor bone grafting is essentially reconstructive surgery designed to restore and/or correct bony support for prosthetic purposes and/or functional deformities in the oral and maxillofacial region of the head and neck.
Tooth Extractions: When a tooth is not able to be restored to function (nonrestorable), extractions are necessary and are best performed by an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
Wisdom Teeth: Wisdom teeth are vestigial structures that serve no modern-day purpose for most patients. They are the least likely to erupt into function and are the most likely to have problems over the lifetime of a patient.
Jaw Surgery: Orthognathic surgery, or corrective jaw surgery, fixes misalignments or other abnormalities in the upper and/or lower jaws and requires coordination of care between your orthodontist and your oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
Facial Trauma: Facial trauma is often complex, involving injuries to the bone, teeth, gums, skin, and other tissues. Once any life-threatening concerns are addressed, a treatment plan to heal these injuries is created.
Pre-Prosthetic Surgery: If you need to replace missing teeth or realign your existing natural teeth, you may need to modify the bony and/or soft tissue architecture to optimize the form, function, and/or aesthetics of your replacement teeth, a.k.a.dental prosthesis. Simply put, pre-prosthetic surgery is a broad term for oral surgery that is done before, and in preparation of, your dentist's delivery of your replacement teeth (your prosthesis). Pre-prosthetic surgery may involve one or a combination of smoothing, removing, reshaping, or augmenting your bone and soft tissue for a better fit.
Distraction Osteogenesis: Performed to correct skeletal deformities that could cause health problems, distraction osteogenesis involves cutting the bone and then slowly separating it to allow new growth.
Oral Pathology: We carefully examine the head, neck, and oral tissues for suspicious changes, and perform biopsies to provide histological support from an oral pathologist for diagnoses. The diagnosis helps the oral and maxillofacial surgery render appropriate surgical treatment.
TMJ Disorders: We offer surgical and nonsurgical treatments for disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).
Sleep Apnea: We provide surgical and nonsurgical solutions for obstructive sleep apnea.
Cleft Lip & Palate: A cleft lip is an opening in the upper lip, while a cleft palate is an opening in the roof of the mouth. Children with these birth defects need a series of surgeries beginning in infancy and continuing into their teens and are best treated by a coordinated team of specialists.
Bone Morphogenetic Protein: This growth factor allows us to stimulate natural jawbone growth, eliminating the need to harvest bone from the patient’s hip.
Platelet Rich Plasma: Obtained from the patient’s own blood, platelet-rich plasma can help heal soft tissues and even play a role in bone regeneration.
Platelet Rich Fibrin: Obtained from the patient's own blood and used to protect bone grafts, these membranes contain important chemicals enhancing both bone and soft tissue regeneration.
Impacted Canines: We offer several options to treat impacted canine teeth. Consultation with our surgical specialists are designed to consider and explain appropriate options and answer your questions.
3D Imaging: Cone beam 3D imaging provides us with a 360-degree view of the teeth and supporting structures, vastly improving treatment planning and implant placement.
Cosmetic Services: We provide a variety of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic facial enhancements from BOTOX® to dermal fillers to scar revision.
Anesthesia: We offer a full range of dental anesthesia solutions, including local anesthesia, IV anesthesia, and hospital-based general anesthesia.
