Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a recognized specialty of the American Dental Association. Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Yanagihara manages a wide variety of problems relating to the oral and maxillofacial(face) complex. Although trained in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Yanagihara focuses his practice on tooth removal, wisdom tooth extractions, dental implants, bone grafting and orthognathic (corrective jaw) surgery. Many techniques are designed to reconstruct the bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort.
