Oral and Facial Surgery
We assist patients with a wide range of oral and facial needs.
Oral and Maxillofacial surgery can positively affect the way we smile, the way we eat, the way we sleep, the way we look, and the way we breathe. Anyone who has struggled with an issue involving their face, jaw, or teeth, understands that even minor health issues can harm your quality of life, lower your self-esteem, and reduce your ability to accomplish your goals and dreams.
At Alpine Oral and Facial Surgery, our physician and supporting staff are dedicated to making our patients lives better through oral surgery. We assist patients with a wide range of medical needs related to the head, jaw, face, and neck. Including, but not limited to, orthognathic surgery, corrective jaw surgery, sleep apnea treatment, and dental implants in Missoula and the Bitterroot Valley.
Below is a list of our services.
Our oral and maxillofacial surgeon has the education and experience to guide you through the tooth extraction process, from your initial consultation to your full recovery. We are committed to removing your painful teeth in an efficient, painless, and careful manner – and we can guide you through the process of replacing your lost teeth if necessary. Wisdom teeth and beyond, we can help.
Dental implants can be used to replace teeth lost to disease, decay, or injury. Patients can receive a single implant, multiple implants, or a full set of implant-supported teeth. Tooth loss can be painful, embarrassing, and inconvenient. It can affect what you can eat, how you speak, and how you live – it can even affect your desire and ability to smile. Whether it’s a single implant or All-On-Four, we can help!
Corrective Jaw Surgery
You do not have to live with a painful, misaligned jaw! Corrective jaw surgery can move your upper and lower jaw into a more aligned position, correcting bite issues, taking away chronic pain, and improving your appearance. In some cases, jaw surgery can also help with other health issues, including breathing problems and sleep apnea.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) disorders aren’t just about an annoying clicking jaw or temporary bouts of jaw pain. Those suffering from chronic, long-term TMJ pain often have their daily lives affected by facial muscle pain, tooth pain, headaches, ear aches, painful chewing, and limited jaw movement. From smiling to enjoying a meal, those plagued with TMJ health issues struggle to live comfortably. We may be able to help you live comfortably with yours.
Sleep Apnea Correction
If you already know you suffer with sleep apnea and would like to discuss your best options for surgical correction, we look forward to meeting you, and helping you and your loved ones enjoy a restful and healthy night’s sleep.
Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology
As an Oral and Maxillofacial surgery practice, we are uniquely qualified to manage the range of diseases that can affect the head, mouth and neck region in a way that not only treats the disease, but also restores the patient’s function and enjoyment of life.
Facial trauma may be the most personal of injuries: it can affect how you look, how you sound, and how you smile. It can also affect your ability to chew, speak, or breathe. If you or your child have suffered an accident that involved your head, neck, and face, it is vital that you seek thorough, experienced, and specialized medical care for your injuries.
