Why should I choose an oral and maxillofacial surgeon?

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMS) treat a variety of oral, head, neck, jaw, and face issues. Unlike a general dentist, these specialists go through dental school, then spend another 4 – 6 years in a hospital-based residency program. Many often become board certified and complete even more fellowships or seek other degrees to even further hone their skills. Both Dr. Prabh Grewal and Dr. Arthur Kilkuts are board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons at our Corona, CA facility and treat men, women, and teens in a variety of oral and maxillofacial needs. Corona Oral Surgery and Implant Center is proud to be a member of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), which means we continue to receive educational requirements to comply with the rigorous standards of AAOMS.

What does an oral and maxillofacial surgeon treat?

While OMSs treat head, neck, jaw, and oral issues, you may still wonder when you’d need to see such a specialist, like Dr. Grewal or Dr. Kilkuts. Typically, anytime a complicated oral procedure is needed, an oral or maxillofacial surgeon will be needed. An OMS commonly performs:

  • Tooth extractions
  • Wisdom teeth maintenance
  • Orthodonic or pre-prosthetic surgery
  • Dental Implants
  • Corrective Jaw Surgery

Whether you need a wisdom tooth removed, have an impacted tooth that needs to be extracted, need dental implants, or have had some sort of trauma to the face, Dr. Kilkuts and Dr. Grewal are here when you need them. We offer a variety of treatments, including bone grafting, TMJ therapy, sinus lifts, and more. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology and offering sedation dentistry, our goal is to offer a wide range of services under one roof so our patients can conveniently receive a variety of care and rest assured knowing that they are in strong, capable hands.
