We’re Uniquely Qualified to Treat You

General dentists are known for providing a wide range of dental services, including teeth cleanings and checkups. They diagnose and treat a variety of dental conditions. While these are important, general dental practitioners lack the advanced, specialized training of oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Oral surgeons are recognized experts in treating complex, sometimes medically compromised cases that general practices turn down. It comes down to training, which includes extensive education after dental school, with a minimum of four years in a hospital-based residency. 

Having exceeded these requirements, Dr. Aaron Vickers and Dr. Tamir Anver, our oral surgeons in Flower Mound and Denton, TX, are unmatched in their expertise in:

  • Dental implant placement (including zygomatic implants)
  • Tooth extractions (including wisdom teeth)
  • TMJ disorder treatment
  • Reconstructive facial surgery
  • Corrective jaw surgery
  • Cosmetic surgery
  • Obstructive sleep apnea surgery
  • Treatment of oral, head, and neck cancers

Why Board Certification Matters

While not required to be an oral surgeon, board certification through the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the hallmark of a dedicated dental surgical specialist. For board certification, an oral surgeon must successfully complete a series of rigorous examinations, including oral and written tests, as well as a peer-review process. After this, they’re considered board-certified—a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery—for a limited time. Oral surgeons must undergo a re-certification process every 10 years to maintain that designation.

What board certification means to you, the patient, is that your doctors here at the Texas Center for Oral Surgery and Dental Implants are versed in all the latest techniques and treatments of the field. You can always count on receiving the most modern, up-to-date care right here.
