  • Fistula

    Fistulas are generally associated with some type of infection, foreign body, etc… The fact that various materials have emerged from your open fistula warrants this region to be opened, debrided, explored as well as a possible biopsy. You should seek prompt attention regarding this persistent issue. READ MORE

  • Can surgery fix receding gums?

    Gum grafting surgery is a predictable and long lasting option for receded gums. Using cadaver tissue or your own tissue are used to be repair the gum defects. READ MORE

  • Can dental implants brake?

    During the 3-4 months of healing, dental implants may break if subjected to too much pressure before they have completely fused in the jawbone. The components of the crown or bridge can also be damaged if subjected to too much stress. Wear and tear can break the abutment, which is the connector holding the crown to the implant. If the dental implant crown feels loose, there may be a damaged screw inside the implant that holds in the crown. Patients who grind their teeth are more prone to breakage, fracture and failure of implants. READ MORE

  • Are titanium implants safe?

    Titanium is a commonly used inert material within the medical and dental fields. Titanium is a very strong, lightweight, non-toxic, and corrosion-resistant. This material is used for dental implants because of its long-lasting and very high success rate. Although the use of titanium is thought to be safe with a high success rate, in some rare cases, there are reports of problems. Titanium dental implants include the generation of titanium and titanium alloy particles and ions where these can be deposited into the system causing toxic reactions in tissues such as yellow nail syndrome. Although this reaction is very rare, we need to be aware of the problems of titanium toxicity. Titanium implants are the best option for patients who have no hypersensitivity to this metal. Lastly, titanium is non-magnetic, so it very rarely sets off standard metal detectors. READ MORE

  • When should I be worried about gum pain around the tooth?

    Anytime you experience persistent pain around a tooth, you should definitely see your Dentist. Sometimes things can be fixed easily if addressed sooner. READ MORE

  • How much rest should I take after implant surgery?

    After any oral surgery you should avoid any strenuous activity for a couple weeks post surgery. Depending on the number of implants that was done and whether sedation was administered, will determine how many days you should be resting. Typically, you should expect 3 days of facial swelling, possible bruising, and 1-2 days of discomfort. READ MORE

  • Can I use chlorhexidine after implant?

    Infection control is essential after implant surgery. Rinsing with chlorhexidine can decrease the bacterial load in your mouth. Rinsing for twice a day for a week post surgery can be beneficial post implant surgery. READ MORE

  • How long does recovery after dental bone graft surgery take?

    Recovery from bone grafting depends on the size and type of the graft as well as several other factors. Socket grafts typically heal faster than a larger graft like ridge grafting or sinus grafting. Typically, recovery may take anywhere from two weeks to several months. The recovery period can depend on the type of surgery, your age, and your physical health. You may need to avoid strenuous physical activity post-surgery, for as long as your surgeon suggests. Depending on the type of graft material used, the bone usually takes three months for the bone to turn over to your own bone thus allowing dental implant insertion. After the procedure, your dentist will most probably prescribe antimicrobial rinses, antibiotics and pain medication to assist you with post operative healing. READ MORE

  • How long does it take for implants to fuse to the bone?

    As general wound healing varies in all individuals, the average time it takes for an implant to “fuse to the surrounding bone” is usually 3-6 months. Osseointegration is the term used to describe this fusion process. READ MORE

  • What can I do for gingivitis?

    Gingivitis is an inflammatory condition of the gums. The most common cause is poor oral hygiene or irritants on the gums that cause the gums to appear red, swollen, and occasionally bleed. Gingivitis can be a reversible condition if treated early. The damage done by gingivitis can often be reversed by ridding your gums of the infection by routine professional cleanings, strict daily brushing, and flossing. Periodontitis is a more advanced form of gingivitis where the gums and bones are affected. Get your routine professional dental cleanings. Ask your dentist/hygienist if you would benefit from a prescription mouth rinse for gingivitis. READ MORE

  • Should I take pain medicine before dental implant?

    If you can tolerate Tylenol based on your health history then it’s ok to take that before surgery. NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications) such as Advil or Aleve are usually not recommended before surgery, as they may increase the risk of bleeding. Taking an Opioid for pain control should be discussed with your implant surgeon as they may administer this through your IV if you are being sedated. Any and all medications should be discussed with your surgeon prior to surgery. READ MORE

  • Can a partial denture be attached to an implant?

    Studies have reported that the use of implants in conjunction with remaining natural teeth in the implant supported removable partial denture substantially improve oral health quality of life for patients compared to conventional treatment options with only natural teeth present. As long as the implant is stable and the surrounding soft tissue is favorable, a partial can use a dental implant as an anchor. READ MORE

Get to know Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. Cyndi Nguyen, who serves patients in South New Jersey as well as Philadelphia (late 2022) 

As a board-certified oral & maxillofacial surgeon, Dr. Nguyen will be opening Philadelphia Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, a state of the art Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Implant center with fully digital modern equipment in Northern Liberties in November, 2022. Her love for oral surgery has been demonstrated in the optimal care, continued education, and compassion for her patients.

With a broad educational background, Dr. Nguyen earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the Louisiana State University School of Dentistry in 1997 with distinguished awards in Prosthodontics, Endodontics, and Operative Dentistry. Because of her passion for surgery, she went on to complete a five year internship and residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Temple University Hospital. 

As a testament to her success, she earned her Diplomate with the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and Diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. She has earned fellowships in the Academy of General dentistry and American Academy of Oral & Maxillofacial surgery. 

She has taken extensive hours of continued education, both internationally and nationally, in implantology and hard and soft tissue grafting, and is a faculty member of the prestigious Misch Implant Institute. She has earned her degree in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, a world wide recognized organization. 

Remaining up to date in her surgical field, Dr. Nguyen is an active member of the American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the Pennsylvania Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, the New Jersey Society of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.

In addition to her clinical role, she believes in giving back to the community. She has been involved in several mission trips to provide oral surgery and restorative care in Northern Africa, Southern Asia and Indian Navajo reservations in Arizona. 

Oral and maxillofacial surgery specializes in surgery of the face, mouth, and jaws. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are dental specialists who treat conditions, defects, injuries, and esthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaws, and face. Their training involves a four-year graduate degree in dentistry and the completion of a minimum four-year hospital surgical residency program.

Dr Nguyen has a unique skill that most Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons do not have. She actually practiced for almost 13 years as a General Dentist prior to her endeavors in surgery. This synergistic knowledge of Oral Surgery and General Dentistry offers a higher level of care.
