What is Oral And Maxillofacial Surgery?

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions related to the mouth, jaw, face, and neck. This surgical specialty encompasses procedures that address issues such as impacted teeth, facial trauma, jaw misalignment, oral pathology, and congenital deformities. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons undergo extensive training, which includes dental school followed by additional years of surgical residency, to become experts in performing complex surgical procedures in and around the oral cavity and facial structures. These surgeries are often performed under anesthesia to ensure patient comfort and safety.

When Oral and Maxillofacial surgeries Are Needed?

Oral and maxillofacial surgeries are typically required to address a variety of dental and facial issues. These surgeries may be needed in cases of impacted teeth, severe dental infections, facial trauma resulting from accidents or injuries, jaw misalignment (orthognathic surgery), congenital deformities such as cleft lip and palate, or the removal of tumors or cysts in the oral or facial region. Additionally, oral and maxillofacial surgeries may be necessary for procedures like dental implant placement, bone grafting, or corrective jaw surgery to improve bite function and facial aesthetics. Ultimately, the need for oral and maxillofacial surgery depends on the specific dental or facial condition and the treatment plan recommended by your dental or surgical specialist.
