Taking care of your teeth goes beyond simply caring for your mouth. Good dental hygiene is an important part of your overall health - and neglecting your teeth and gums can lead to health problems. In fact, gum disease has been linked to heart disease. We encourage everyone to visit the dentist twice a year for a routine exam and cleaning, and to follow your dentist's advice regarding your oral health.

At Northwestern Memorial, we provide a wide range of oral care, ranging from routine dental exams to complex reconstruction surgery and specialty dental services. Regardless of the type of acquired or pre-existing dental, oral or maxillofacial condition you may have, our multidisciplinary staff will work with you to freshen up or restore your smile.

Conditions we evaluate, diagnose and treat include:

  • Facial deformities
  • Facial injuries
  • Misaligned jaw
  • Oral cancer
  • Periodontal diseases
  • Problems with wisdom teeth
  • TMJ disorders

The Division of Dental Surgery includes Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Prosthodontics, Maxillofacial Prosthodontics, Oral Pathology, Endodontics, Periodontics, and Orthodontics.
