Our Oral Surgery Services
Our practice has ample experience helping patients address tooth loss. The gold standard for tooth replacement is dental implants. Each implant is a small titanium post inserted into the jawbone, where it acts as an artificial tooth root for your new teeth. Dental implants are an excellent option because they prevent bone deterioration and boast an extremely high rate of long-term success.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
For most people, wisdom teeth need to be removed at some point during their teens or early 20s. When left unaddressed, wisdom teeth may lead to a host of oral health complications, including crowding, chronic pain, heightened risk of infection, and more. Our practice is a trusted provider of wisdom teeth removal, and we have extensive experience keeping patients comfortable and safe while having their wisdom teeth extracted.
All-on-4® Dental Implants
Dr. Streelman and his team meet with many patients who suffer from extensive tooth loss, or who face the need to have most of their teeth extracted. This may be due to dental neglect, disease, or even facial trauma. No matter the reason, our practice can provide full-mouth restoration, often relying on a treatment method known as All-on-4® dental implants. The All-on-4 approach can replace all of your teeth using as little as four dental implants, rehabilitating your smile while minimizing the surgical time required. Dr. Streelman is a proud All-on-4 treatment concept provider serving patients from Redmond, WA.
Some patients from Redmond, WA come to us experiencing inadequate bone mass, which can lead to a host of other dental health problems. Dr. Streelman has ample experience in addressing this common issue with bone grafting surgery. Bone grafting is also used to prepare the jaw for dental implants.
Through a detailed examination of your mouth, teeth, tongue, and gums, Dr. Streelman can identify a number of potential oral pathologies, including oral cancer. From there, we can either develop a treatment plan or in some cases recommend you to the necessary specialists. Some conditions that can be treated by an oral surgeon include mouth cancers, mouth ulcers, and other jaw problems.
The goal of dental care is always to preserve your naturally growing teeth. In some cases, however, this may not be possible, whether due to a traumatic injury or advanced decay. Patients may need to have the tooth removed and ultimately replaced. Dr. Matthew Streelman offers his experience in tooth extractions here at Mercer Island Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
Facial Trauma Reconstruction
Nobody ever plans for a traumatic event to occur. It can happen, though, for a variety of reasons. At Mercer Island Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we are always here to help patients recover from these traumatic incidents. Dr. Streelman will assess the damage using in-office imaging and physical exams. He will then formulate and recommend a treatment plan.
