Dr. Christopher Galea and his team perform the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures, including dental implant placement, wisdom teeth removal, jaw surgery, cleft lip and cleft palate treatment, and more in Reno and Sparks, NV.
A dental implant can replace one or more missing teeth with a fully functioning solution that looks and feels like a natural tooth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Third molars should be removed early because they can become impacted, push other teeth out of place, and cause infections.
Cleft Lip & Cleft Palate
Dr. Galea treats clefts so that infants and children can achieve a fully functioning mouth, better oral health, and pleasing aesthetics with minimal scarring.
Orthognathic surgery repositions the jaw to correct bite, breathing, or speech issues, alleviate pain, and create facial harmony.
Slowly pulling apart a bony segment allows new bone to grow in between the segments. This is an alternative to bone grafting and helps promote a strong facial structure.
A bone graft regrows bone in an area where the bone has atrophied and helps patients prepare for dental implants by providing a stable foundation.
Dr. Galea is on-call to treat emergency and non-emergency trauma cases to ensure the facial structures heal correctly throughout recovery.
We work with your orthodontist to perform an expose and bond procedure to help an impacted canine tooth properly erupt into the dental arch.
We regularly perform screenings to identify and treat any abnormality of the oral and maxillofacial region, including oral cancer.
Dental implants can secure a permanent denture in one or both arches, resulting in a brand new smile that looks and functions naturally.
General Tooth Extractions
A tooth may need to be extracted if it is damaged or decayed, or for orthodontic treatments that require more space in the dental arch.
Oral Reconstructive Surgery
Oral reconstructive surgery can restore large areas of tissue and bone for functional and aesthetic benefits.
