Past Cases in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Surgical removal of cyst

Surgical Removal of a cyst. This patient had one of the worst cysts I have ever seen.

extraction of supernumary tooth in oral surgery

Extraction of the supernumerary tooth on a pediatric patient. If left in place, the permanent tooth could be blocked out of its normal position and fail to erupt. The lower photo is an apicoectomy of a failed root canal. I am cleaning out an infected area around the root and sterilizing the apex. I then sealed the apex with a new plug of gutta-percha or IRM.

Typical post swelling from wisdom teeth extraction surgery

Typical post-op swelling from wisdom teeth extraction. It is normal to swell up after oral surgery. Swelling lasts for one week, and sometimes less.

surgical extraction of wisdom teeth

This is a surgical extraction of wisdom teeth. It is difficult to see the surgery because it is so far back in the mouth.

Excisional biopsy of papilloma

Excisional Biopsy of Papilloma.

Surgical extraction of lateral incisor

Surgical extraction of a lateral incisor.

Surgical correction of failed root canal

Surgical correction of the failed root canal by performing an apicoectomy and retrograde endo seal. Several cases are shown here. The upper one is a classic. You can see the incision and reflection, the bone, the apex of the tooth, and the retrograde endo or apical plug or seal from underneath. When completed the case is sutured or stitched up.

Excisional biopsy of lipoma tumor

Excisional Biopsy of lipoma tumor on the patient’s lip.

I have had a lot of procedures including 8 implants. There is no better dentist office than Carson and Carson. Dr. Derek Carson (the son of Dr. Leroy Carson) is FANTASTIC! He has learned well from his father (who still works there). Papa is the MAN!, and has been for years. Insane amount of knowledge. The Doctors are THE BEST! The support staff is fun and professional always. I will never go anywhere else.

A dentist that truly understands how much the whole dental trip petrifies me - and helps me overcome it. For the first time, and certainly not the last, he used nitros oxide and I can honestly say I can look at future visits without abject terror. No more waiting until the tooth needs pulled! I may even get my teeth cleaned.

Dr. Derek, you have a hand and a heart of gold. That spirit of help that you have is praiseworthy. I'm amazed at all the treatment you've done and I feel no pain after, not even the pain of the anesthesia sting, I say with propriety because I am very sensitive to pain. Congratulations on your work that loves what you do so you have been successful, not counting on your last generation machine that I do not know how to explain. Much gratitude, you're the best.
