What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a subspecialty of dentistry that requires up to 6 additional years of hospital based surgical and anesthesia training. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Drs. Bontempi and Paolella manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. The doctors practice a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant surgery to corrective jaw surgery and wisdom tooth removal. They can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries and TMJ disorders.

The staff at Berkshire Facial Surgery is trained in assisting with general anesthesia or I.V. sedation within our state of the art office setting. Patients are continuously monitored during and after surgery and all precautionary emergency equipment is quickly available, if needed.
