At The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Center of South Louisiana, we take pride in offering patients a wide range of treatment options, ensuring they can receive the solution best suited to address their oral health concerns. The best way to learn about different treatment options is to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Joshua S. Brandner, who is always happy to spend time educating patients and empowering them to choose the right level of care.
We treat many patients who have either lost teeth to disease and decay or anticipate the need to have teeth extracted. Dental implants often provide the most seamless option for tooth restoration. With implants, you can once again have a healthy smile comprised of fully functional teeth.
The All-on-4 method is a popular approach to dental implants. With this method, patients can replace all of their teeth with just four implants strategically placed throughout the mouth. For patients who require full dental rehabilitation, All-on-4 may be the most sensible solution.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Most of us develop wisdom teeth at some point during our late teens or early 20s. These teeth can cause a number of dental complications because the jaw is typically too small for the additional teeth. To avoid any issues that may arise in the future, we usually recommend removing wisdom teeth altogether. Dr. Brandner has ample experience with wisdom teeth extractions and always strives to keep patients safe and comfortable during their procedures.
Corrective Jaw Surgery
Misalignment of the jawbone can lead to a host of issues, including problems with form and function, as well as persistent pain. Corrective surgery can address these issues, helping you to look and feel your best. Dr. Brandner is a trusted provider of corrective jaw surgery for patients throughout the Covington and Hammond, LA area.
Tooth loss is often accompanied by a loss of bone tissue. When this happens, it can cause unwanted changes to the facial appearance and make dental restoration more challenging. Patients who have lost bone can regenerate it through a surgical procedure called bone grafting, which provides new bone growth where it is needed the most.
For patients with chronic jaw pain, we can provide both surgical and non-surgical treatment options. Dr. Brandner can alleviate TMJ Disorder without the need for surgery.
When teeth are too sick or too damaged to be viable, the best approach is to extract and replace them. We offer safe and expedient extraction services.
Facial trauma occurs from car crashes, sports injuries, or workplace accidents. We offer surgical interventions to address significant injuries to the face or the jaw.
We meet with many patients who have unidentified growths along their gums, tongue, or the inside of their cheek. At our practice, we can provide full diagnoses and treatments. Though we refer patients to specialists as needed, the vast majority of oral abnormalities can be treated by our in-house team.
Patient comfort is one of our chief concerns, which is why we are happy to provide sedation and anesthesia options to meet every need. Dr. Brandner will explain all the sedation options and empower you to make a decision that will alleviate any pain and anxiety you may be feeling about your procedure.
A sinus lift is a type of bone graft that can make dental restoration possible even for patients with limited upper jawbone. Sinus lifts can also raise the sinus membrane when needed.
A torus is a small bone formation that can cause oral pain or discomfort. Dr. Brandner can identify and remove tori safely and effectively.
A frenum is a small piece of tissue in the mouth, which can sometimes impair speech or result in dental complications. Frenectomies are simple, straightforward procedures to remove these connective bands.
Scars from injuries or past surgeries can compromise your smooth skin. Scar revision can minimize the visibility of scars, restoring your sense of self-confidence.
Moles can occasionally become irritating, aesthetically displeasing, or even cancerous. Mole removal is usually a short and simple procedure that we offer in-house.
Botox and soft tissue fillers can provide non-surgical solutions for several cosmetic problems, ranging from wrinkles and fine lines to sagging skin.
