Oral and maxillofacial surgery focuses on the face, mouth, and jaws. Specialists in this area typically have completed extensive training in dentistry, surgery, and general medicine. The procedures can range from cosmetic surgeries like laser skin resurfacing to restorative treatments like bone grafting.
At Dugan & Sweeney OMS, we offer a wide range of oral and maxillofacial procedures for your convenience. Both of our dentists are experienced oral surgeons who can ensure your safety and comfort during treatment. Explore our guide to learn more about your options and how you can benefit from oral or maxillofacial surgery.
Maxillofacial surgery includes treatment of facial injuries, such as fractures of the lower or upper jaw, cheekbone, nose, and orbit. Maxillofacial surgeons also treat soft tissue injuries of the mouth, face, and neck.
To ensure a comfortable experience, we’ll typically offer IV sedation before your oral or maxillofacial surgery.
You may have impacted wisdom teeth or other unhealthy teeth that need to be removed. Dental implant placement, bone grafting, and other supplemental procedures all fit into the oral and maxillofacial category as well.
You don’t have to be in severe pain or have missing teeth to benefit from our treatments. Our skin rejuvenation treatments can help you achieve a variety of cosmetic goals for a stunning appearance.
Skin rejuvenation describes a variety of treatments that remove wrinkles and other small flaws. These treatments can help you appear more youthful and attractive, helping to boost your confidence.

Our ultra pulse CO2 laser has changed the way skin treatments are performed. Using controlled bursts of radiation, we can remove small wrinkles, scars, and sun damage with unmatched precision.
By using this laser, we eliminate the need for a scalpel and reduce your risk of scarring. We’ll also administer a local anesthetic to ensure you don’t feel any pain during the procedure.
Restylane is the only non-animal-based dermal filler that can remove wrinkles, folds, and small scars from your skin. Administered in small amounts through an ultra-fine needle, Restylane produces results that can last six months or longer.
Many patients choose Restylane because it’s biodegradable and biocompatible, eliminating the risk of any allergic reactions.
BOTOX® injections are a great way to remove frown lines, crows feet, and other facial wrinkles. The injections are virtually painless and will help you achieve the radiant appearance you desire.
Though the results won’t last forever, you won’t need to repeat the procedure often and long-term use should increase the duration of each treatment’s effect. It’s also important to note that BOTOX® can only treat expression lines and won’t work for natural wrinkles caused by aging.
A chemical peel involves applying a solution to damaged areas of your skin that will cause the dead cells to peel off. As your skin heals, scars, acne, and other small flaws will disappear.
The concentration of a chemical peel can vary depending on the severity of your skin damage. We especially recommend this treatment for patients who want to eliminate sun damage, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation.
We strive to provide our clients with a pain-free experience and a fast recovery. We offer the following treatments to help make the most out of your appointment with us:
Here at the offices of Dr. Dugan and Dr. Sweeney, we want your visit to be as comfortable as possible. That’s why we offer IV sedation to help keep you calm and relaxed during your procedure.
