My name is David Turbyfill and I am an oral and maxillofacial surgeon practicing in Orange City, Florida, but proudly serve Seminole, Volusia counties & all of Central Florida. My academic and professional pursuits have sent me around the world.

I have practiced with the US Navy from 1993 to 2005. I have had the opportunity through the Armed Forces and personal pursuit to continue my education and reinforce my clinical and surgical skills.

 I am approached by patients with complaints of ill fitting and/or painful dentures regularly.

There are many causes of these types of issues. A good starting point is an evaluation by your general dentist or myself to rule out infection or pathology.

Oral Surgery

Dr. David Turbyfill performs oral surgery on wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly, and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum or even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone.

Another oral surgery that Dr. Turbyfill performs is orthnognathic surgery. Orthognathic surgery is needed when jaws don't meet correctly and/or teeth don't seem to fit with jaws. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics, and corrective jaw surgery repositions misaligned jaws. This not only improves facial appearance, but also ensures that teeth meet correctly and function properly.

Tooth removal is the most common surgical service provided by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Dr. Turbyfill has the skill and experience to remove single or multiple teeth with little or no discomfort to the patient. Extractions can be performed with local anesthesia (numbing injections) alone or local anesthesia in combination with IV anesthesia. We will discuss your anesthetic options with you and help you choose the technique that is best for you.

When soft tissue injuries such as lacerations occur on the face, they are repaired by "suturing". In addition to the obvious concern of providing a repair which yields the best cosmetic result possible, care is taken to inspect for and treat, injuries to structures such as facial nerves, salivary glands and salivary ducts (or outflow channels.) Dr Turbyfill is a well-trained oral and maxillofacial surgeon and is proficient at diagnosing and treating all types of facial lacerations.

Dental Implants themselves are tiny titanium posts which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jaw bone. After the implant has osseointegrated or bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. Dr. Turbyfill will uncover the implants and attach small posts which will act as anchors for the artificial teeth. These posts protrude through the gums. When the artificial teeth are placed these posts will not be seen.
