Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires up to 6 additional years of hospital based surgical and anesthesia training beyond dental school. As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, Dr. Hochberg & Dr. Abel manage multiple problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. Dr. Hochberg & Dr. Abel provide a wide variety of oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures with expertise ranging from routine dental extractions and wisdom tooth removal to jaw reconstruction with bone grafts and dental implants.

Dental Implants in Manchester, New Hampshire
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Hochberg & Dr. Abel are able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implants can be placed at the same time as a tooth extraction - further minimizing the number of surgical procedures. Advances in dental implant technology have made it possible, in select cases, to extract teeth and place implants with crowns at one visit. This procedure, called “immediate loading,” greatly simplifies the surgical process.
