Knoxville Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
The oral surgeons and our team of dental professionals at Knoxville Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, P.C., in Knoxville, TN, can help you maintain both your oral and overall health with a number of procedures outside the scope of what a dentist can perform. Some maxillofacial surgeons rely on performing treatments at a hospital. This can add to cost of the procedure and a level of inconvenience, as the surgeon must schedule the oral surgery in a time that works for both the patient and the hospital.
At Knoxville Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, P.C., our surgical centers are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, advanced tools, and sedation so that we can assure that every aspect of your treatment is held to our high standards.
Our State-of-the-Art Surgical Center

We also implement best practices to consistently maintain and improve our services. We meet the highest hygiene standards and our team is certified to provide the anesthesia you need for comfortable treatment.

TMJ Disorder Treatment
If traditional TMJ treatment options have not been effective, our doctors can provide surgical solutions including arthrocentesis, arthroscopy, condylotomy, open arthroplasty, and total joint replacement.
When your gums recede, more of the tooth is exposed. This process can lead to dental sensitivity and eventual tooth loss. A gum graft can restore lost tissue, improving the comfort, health, and appearance of your smile.

Testimonials From Our Patients
We are proud to be able to provide our patients with access to first-rate surgical care, cutting-edge procedures, and an overall outstanding experience.
Dr. Emery did a fantastic job in providing tooth extraction and replacement with a dental implant. I had been anxious and he relieved my concerns immediately. He and his team provided a relatively pain-free experience and were available to answer all my questions quickly and professionally. I was so pleased with them that I took my daughter to Dr. Emery for her wisdom teeth extraction. We were both surprised at how well her pain had been managed and she never had to use opioids! If we need oral surgery again, we know where to go! Thank you, Dr. Emery, Dawn, Amanda, Meghan, Hannah, Wendy, and all the others!

Dr. Emery and his staff are so amazing. They really go the extra mile to make you comfortable and Dr. Emery’s bedside manner is like none I’ve ever seen before! He’s one of those doctors you hope you don’t have to go back to, but will be the ONLY one I do go to if it’s ever needed again. My only complaint is that he’s not in general dentistry because i wouldn’t be so terrified to go to a dentist if it was him. Great guy, great staff, great atmosphere!
