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.

Dental Implants in Reno and Sparks, Nevada

Dental Implants

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 in Reno and Sparks, Nevada

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 repair in Reno and Sparks, Nevada

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 in Reno and Sparks, Nevada

Orthognathic Surgery

Orthognathic surgery repositions the jaw to correct bite, breathing, or speech issues, alleviate pain, and create facial harmony.

Craniofacial Surgery

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.

Bone Grafting in Reno and Sparks, Nevada

Bone Grafting

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.

Additional Procedures

Full-Arch Restoration

Dental implants can secure a permanent denture in one or both arches, resulting in a brand new smile that looks and functions naturally.

Impacted Canines

We work with your orthodontist to perform an expose and bond procedure to help an impacted canine tooth properly erupt into the dental arch.

Facial Trauma

Dr. Galea is on-call to treat emergency and non-emergency trauma cases to ensure the facial structures heal correctly throughout recovery.

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.
