ABOUT

Dr. Wolf is a native of Long Island and received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. Upon graduating, he continued his training at The New York Hospital of Queens, completing a General Practice Residency where he received advanced training in all areas of dentistry.

 

With an increased interest in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Wolf pursued further training at the Brooklyn Hospital Center Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery department.  He had the opportunity to rotate through the Brooklyn Veterans Affairs Oral Surgery Department treating patients requiring reconstructive implant surgery working in conjunction with multiple other disciplines in the fields of medicine, surgery and dentistry.  Dr. Wolf then spent a year in North Eastern Pennsylavania training in the Geisinger Medical Center where he received training in TMJ surgery, maxillofacial trauma, pathology, cleft lip and palate and orthognathic surgery using computer generated virtual surgical planning techniques.

 

Being involved in treating a high volume of total joint replacement patients has given Dr. Wolf the experience and expertise to treat the most severe TMJ joint issues. Dr. Wolf has published TMJ related articles in recognized peer reviewed journals and oral surgery publications.  He continued to treat patients suffering from facial pain and TMJ joint disease by working in one of the leading minimally invasive TMJ surgery offices in the United States.  With these experiences, Dr. Wolf is able to tailor a treatment plan for the full scope of TMJ issues, from conservative treatment to full joint replacement.  Dr. Wolf ‘s practice philosophy centers on determining the correct diagnosis and customizing individual treatment for each patient.  Our practice looks forward to meeting you and giving us the opportunity to be involved in your care

PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY

SERVICES

Our office offers many services and surgical procedures. Here is a short list of the procedures that that we specialize in. Please inquire for any additional services that you may not see listed.

TMJ Replacement

Total temporomandibular joint (TMJ) replacement is the surgical replacement of the TMJ using custom patient-fitted TMJ total joint prostheses.

TMJ Arthroscopy

TMJ (temporomandibular joint) arthroscopy is a minimally invasive outpatient surgery that allows Dr. Wolf to make the proper diagnosis and to treat the patient in a minimally invasive fashion.

TMJ BOTOX®

BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ disorders and their associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with pain, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients.

Mandibular Fracture

Mandibular fracture (Broken Jaw or Jaw Fracture) is a break through the mandibular bone and is a common facial injury. A number of surgical techniques can be employed for patients including maxillomandibular fixation and open reduction internal fixation (ORIF).

Dental Infection

A dental infection (abscess) is an infection of the mouth, face, jaw, or throat that begins as a tooth infection. The original cause may be from a deep cavity, periodontal (gum) disease, a cracked tooth, trauma, or sometimes even due to recent dental procedures such as extractions and implants.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom tooth extraction (Removal) is a surgical procedure to remove one or more wisdom teeth — the four permanent adult teeth located at the back corners of your mouth on the top and bottom.

Facial Trauma

Facial trauma (Maxillofacial trauma) is any physical trauma or injury to the face. Facial trauma can involve soft tissue injuries such as burns, lacerations and bruises, or fractures of the facial bones such as nasal fractures and fractures of the jaw.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium screws that are gently inserted into the patient's jaw bone, where they function as permanent and solid anchors for new teeth. Dental implants provide patients with the comfort and function similar to their own original teeth.

Bone Graft Reconstruction

Bone grafting is a procedure used to reconstruct the jaw bones to the original form.
