Oral Surgery

Chicago and the suburbs Oral Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a complicated name for just about any procedure to correct issues with the mouth, jaw, neck, and facial structure. This includes everything from removing wisdom teeth to rebuilding the jaw and teeth.

Dental implants are considered a form of oral surgery because placing them involves more than just a little novocaine. Implants are administered under general anesthesia and sometimes require surgical extractions and bone grafting.

The word “surgery” is usually enough to make most people feel anxious. Surgery is associated with pain and recovery, but that’s not typically the case with dental implants. In fact, many patients report feeling little to no pain at all after implants.

An Oral Surgeon’s Role

An oral surgeon is a unique combination of a dentist and medical surgeon. It requires training in both dental and medical school, as well as extensive knowledge about teeth and the muscle and bone surrounding them in your mouth.

Looking for the best oral surgeon Chicago? Well you have come to the right place! Chicago oral surgeons typically have practices that are separate from general dental clinics. However, at 1st Family Dental we have oral surgeons on staff for the convenience of our patients and to ensure the highest level of care and treatment possible.

Your oral surgeon will guide you through every step of the dental implant process and any other treatment that may be needed. The surgeon will also work side by side with your dentist to make sure your mouth heals properly.

We are one big team at 1st Family Dental and we thrive on working together to help our patients achieve healthier, better-looking smiles. How can we help you? Looking for an emergency oral surgeon Chicago? Contact us today!

This has been my go to dentist location since I can remember. I recently took my mom again after her crown fell off and I just can’t rave enough about this location and the dentist that helped us out! If you want the old school family vibe-this is the place to go to. No rip offs if anything they work with you and make you feel comfortable.

Emma M.

My appointment today was outstanding, from being greeted by name by the receptionist upon my arrival, through the cleaning process by Debbie and the dental exam. The equipment is all top shelf and the treatment rooms are very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend 1st Family Dental in the Burr Ridge Village Center to anyone looking for an exceptional dental experience.

I prepared myself for a life without teeth, and did not think there was anything that could be done to help me. I expected to learn to live out the rest of my years hiding my smile, and living with my digestive problems – until I found 1st Family Dental.

Before I knew it, the assistant came out to tell me they were done and she did well. I was so relieved and happy. My daughter was happy and calm. I asked her about her visit. She now has no fears, and can’t wait for her next cleaning in 6 months.

When I got home and looked at my teeth in the mirror, I was astounded with the job that Dr. Akhikar had done. The new filings were much less noticeable than my previous one. I couldn’t have been more satisfied.

The staff was friendly and one of the assistants even let me hold her hand while the extractions were taking place! The dentist who treated me was very professional and made me feel very comfortable.
