Many people have some form of anxiety or hesitation when they need dental surgery. Some feel fearful from past experiences or uncomfortable with the need for anesthesia or sedation. Anthony A. Prousi, DDS, MD and his team at Prousi Oral & Facial Surgery of Burlington, New Jersey, provide patients with exceptional care while easing all concerns in a safe, state-of-the-art and comfortable outpatient surgery center.
“Our patients can feel completely safe and at ease when they come to us for oral surgery,” says Dr. Prousi, the practice’s board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Dr. Prousi offers patients of all age groups a higher level of expertise in dentistry and oral surgery from not only training in dentistry but also in medicine and oral surgery. He received his dental degree from Columbia College of Dental Medicine in New York City and medical degree and surgical training from the University of Pennsylvania and Penn’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. He served as an attending physician at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Princeton Medical Center and now serves and operates in the Virtua Health System. Dr. Prousi regularly lectures in the community and is active in multiple study clubs to advance the field of dentistry.
At Prousi Oral & Facial Surgery, Dr. Prousi directly administers to his adult and adolescent patients several advanced care options for general anesthesia or “twilight” intravenous sedation for those who have anxiety towards dental treatment. Parents also have choices for their children, including “needleless” sedation so children feel safe and secure at all times.
“What makes our practice different is we are truly dedicated to caring for every patient from the moment they meet us and throughout the entire treatment process and follow up care,” Dr. Prousi says. “In fact, every patient gets my cell phone number after surgery in case they have any worries or concerns.”
Dr. Prousi performs most oral surgery procedures including: dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, tooth extractions, complex bone grafting, orthognathic and corrective jaw surgery, facial trauma, exposure of impacted teeth, pre-prosthetic surgery, oral pathology, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, sleep apnea, Botox® and cosmetic dermal fillers.
“After extensive planning with patients and their families, patients come to our center in the morning with teeth that are failing or have major bone loss issues and leave the same day with a full set of new teeth. It’s a coordinated effort with me, the dentist and the laboratory to provide complete care that is life changing for our patients. Patients can use their existing dentist to help with their complete rehab in a day. Our patients smile confidently and can function with their new teeth right away. We also have patients that come in for more routine procedures such as wisdom teeth removal or others looking for minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. That’s what makes our practice so special,” he says. “It’s a boutique surgical center that provides personalized, comprehensive care at all levels in a gentle way using the most advanced techniques available.”
Prousi Oral & Facial Surgery serves Central and South Jersey and the Greater Philadelphia area, especially communities in Lower Bucks County including Levittown, Bristol, Fairless Hills, Langhorne, Yardley, Newtown and many towns nearby.
