Lafayette Oral Surgery - Yuko C. Nakamura DMD, MD - Oral Surgeon In Lafayette

ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY is a recognized specialty of dentistry, involving treatment of many diseases, injuries and defects of the head, neck, face and the hard and soft tissues of the upper and lower jaws.

As a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, Dr. Nakamura and her entire team is dedicated to providing you with a personalized, high quality, gentle and compassionate environment. Part of our commitment to serving our patients includes providing information that helps them to make more informed decisions about their oral health needs. 

She manages a wide variety of problems relating to the oral cavity and the maxillofacial (jaws and facial) regions. Oral and maxillofacial surgery requires additional hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. In addition, Dr. Nakamura attended medical school in order to increase her knowledge of medicine to provide comprehensive care for patients requiring oral and maxillofacial surgery. 

Dr. Nakamura practices a full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery for both pediatric and adult patients, including:

  • Dentoalveolar surgery (such as removal of impacted teeth and bone grafting)
  • Dental implantology                
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea surgery
  • Craniofacial surgery
  • Facial reconstruction/trauma
  • Orofacial pathology (such as tumors or cysts) and Temporomandibular joint disease (TMD)
  • Minor cosmetic procedures such as botox, fillers, KybellaTM, and BBLTM (Broad Band Light/Intensed Pulse Light) 
  • LightScapel® CO2 Laser surgery for procedures including orofacial lesions and frenectomies
  • Outpatient anesthesia is available
