If you have tumors in your jaw or surrounding tissues, Dr. Yusupov removes them using highly effective surgical methods to prevent complications. 

Which type of jaw surgery is best for me?

To determine which jaw surgery is best for you, Dr. Yusupov reviews your medical history, discusses your oral health history, and examines your jaw. He uses dental imaging to obtain an in-depth view of your mouth and jaw before tailoring your treatment plan.

What should I expect during jaw surgery?

Dr. Yusupov numbs the treatment area and offers IV anesthesia/sedation to help you relax and fall asleep. He uses advanced technologies and procedures to restore your jawbone. He closes any incisions afterward and takes you to a recovery area.

After jaw surgery, it’s important to follow your post-care instructions. You can expect tenderness, swelling, and sometimes bruising during the healing process. Take your medications as directed, get plenty of rest, and follow a soft-food diet initially after jaw surgery. Attend follow-up appointments at Gold Coast Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery when scheduled.
