Dr. Ziad Batrouni, D.D.S. of MARYLAND ORAL SURGERY ASSOCIATES (MOSA) is pleased to announce the opening of his modern and highly advanced office in Annapolis, MD. In addition to the new office in Annapolis, Dr. Batrouni continues to work at the recently relocated Crofton/Gambrills office. He lives in Annapolis, MD with his wife and their two children. Dr. Batrouni earned his Dental Degree from Northwestern University Dental School, and completed his internship and surgery residence in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center. Dr. Batrouni is on staff at Anne Arundel Medical Center and is a clinical instructor at the Washington Hospital Center.

Maryland Oral Surgery Associates offers the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with an emphasis on dental implants, permanent teeth in a day, extractions (including wisdom teeth), bone grafting, cosmetics, oral pathology, facial reconstruction, and in-office Intravenous Sedation and General Anesthesia. Cosmetic procedures include: Botox, Fillers, Lip lifts, Cheek Implants and Chin Implants.

The MOSA team has equipped their offices with state-of-the-art technology, including the latest in CT Scan 3-D radiology paired with the “Simplant” computer program which allows the surgeons to perform “virtual surgery” on a 3-D patient image prior to actual surgery. This leads to shorter surgical time, decrease in pain and swelling, and a significantly more predictable surgical outcome. “We use advanced technology such as the Wand (computerized Anesthesia delivery system), and the latest in Intravenous Sedation techniques to reduce the level of discomfort and anxiety,” he explains.

MARYLAND ORAL SURGERY ASSOCIATES provides over 125 hours of continuing education classes, lectures and seminars each year. On October 22, 2014, MOSA will host their annual John Nespeca Memorial Lecture, with all proceeds going to the John Nespeca Scholarship Fund at the University of Maryland, School of Dentistry.

Dr. Batrouni cares deeply about his patients’ comfort and about maintaining outstanding communications with his patients’ dental care providers. “We believe that our field is unique and challenging, since it intersects both the dental and medical fields. We are all well aware of the level of anxiety our patients can experience during their visit to the oral surgeon,” says Dr. Batrouni. “We have tailored our offices and trained our staff to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience. This starts with a thorough consultation visit, to put our patients at ease.”

With 45 years of experience, MARYLAND ORAL SURGERY ASSOCIATES remains committed to superior patient care, with locations in Annapolis, Crofton, Laurel, College Park, Silver Spring, Bethesda and Rockville. It is an expert and dedicated group, with vast and varied surgical training from the top medical centers in the country. The surgeons, Drs. Nathan, Stark, Frey, B. Robinson, Cohen, Pitts & Associates use their collective experiences to assure the best treatment and care for their patients. The MOSA surgeons have been selected TOP DENTISTS by Washingtonian Magazine multiple times, and are on the teaching staff at both, the Washington Hospital Center and the University of Maryland, School of Dentistry. Additionally, the MOSA doctors have been the official team Oral Surgeons for the University of Maryland Athletic teams since 1988.

Q. What happens after atooth is extracted?

A. After the extraction of a permanent tooth, bone and gingival tissue (gums) start to fill the extraction site. However, the body also starts to “melt away” the bone in a vertical and horizontal dimension. If implant tooth replacement is desired, a site preservation bone graft is usually required to prepare the surgical site, especially if bone loss occurred prior to the extraction. This recreates ideal bony contours, and makes dental implant success more predictable. The bone graft is usually performed at the time of extraction with no additional discomfort.
