Welcome to Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group. As Board Certified Oral Surgeons, Dr. Del Valle and Dr. Shahgoli perform comprehensive surgery on the mouth, teeth, and facial region.

Dr. Del Valle and Dr. Shahgoli provide full-scope dental surgery procedures at Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group, please use the links below to learn more about specific treatments:
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement that is placed into the jaw bone and is used in prosthetic dentistry to support restorations that replace a tooth or group of teeth. Implant surgery is performed as an outpatient under general anesthesia (if several implants are to be placed) or with local anesthesia (for simple cases) by oral surgeons. The most common treatment plan consists of several surgeries over a period of months, especially if bone augmentation (bone grafting) is needed to support implant placement. In simpler cases, implants can be placed and restored in a single surgery.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Third molar teeth, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, consist of the upper and lower third molars. They are called wisdom teeth because they usually grow in when a person is between age 17 and 25 or older—old enough to have supposedly gained some wisdom.
Wisdom teeth are commonly extracted when they affect other teeth, become painful, decayed or infected, or when they become impacted. Most adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have more or less.
Temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ syndrome, is an umbrella term covering acute or chronic inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, which connects the mandible to the skull. The disorder and resultant dysfunction can manifest itself in the form of significant pain and functional impairment. Because the disorder transcends the boundaries between several health-care disciplines—in particular, dentistry, neurology, physical therapy, and psychology—there are a variety of treatment approaches.
Corrective Jaw Surgery
Orthognathic surgery, also known as jaw corrective surgery, is surgery to correct conditions or discrepancies of the jaws and face related to structure and growth or to correct orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces.
Orthognathic surgery is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon almost always in collaboration with orthodontic treatment, often including braces before and after surgery, and retainers after the final removal of braces.
Cone Beam CT
Dr. Del Valle and Dr. Shahgoli are one of just a few dental surgeons in Manhattan to offer Cone Beam CT, a cutting-edge, diagnostic technology. For the patient, the convenience of an in-office, I-CAT scanner limits trip to other facilities.
The Cone Beam CT allows the oral surgeon to asses a complete picture of the anatomy of patients’ mouths, faces, and jaw region by producing 3-D views.
Through an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth region, Dr. Del Valle and Dr. Shahgoli, asses the position of the teeth and anticipate current/future problems. Early identification of necessary tooth extractions result in a superior outcome for the patient.
During the tooth extraction procedure, the tooth is removed from the gum. Typically, the need for an extraction is to remove decayed, fractured, or broken teeth.
Dr. Shahin Shahgoli and his staff are true professionals that have always provided the best customer service since I started coming in October 2012. Dr. Shahgoli is very responsive to questions/concerns I had before surgery and as well as after and has always helped me have a clear idea of my situation and options. Plus, he is extremely friendly and makes oral surgery/care not scary! I highly recommend!
I just had a wisdom tooth pulled by Dr. Antonio Del Valle, DMD, MD, at Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group. It had been deteriorating for some time. Dr. Del Valle was great! He explained everything, including any possible after effects. The extraction took no time at all, and I have had no problems so far. The entire staff in the office was friendly and understanding. I am so glad that my regular dentist, Dr. Alla Dorfman of Tribeca Dental and Vision, recommended Dr. Del Valle! I recommend the Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group to anyone who has been putting off oral surgery because they are afraid of the pain. You will not have any pain from these surgeons!
Dr. Shahgoli is the best. Always greets you with a smile, and his work is excellent. Had my wisdom teeth removed - no problems. Quick and relatively painless, considering the procedure. Dr. Shahgoli is a very skilled oral surgeon, and it's a pleasure going to the dental office. Also, the staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and great to work with. I highly recommend their services.
