Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained to perform the following treatments and procedures:
Wisdom teeth and general teeth extractions.
Dental implant placement to replace a single tooth, several teeth or an entire mouthful of teeth. Dental implants offer a long-lasting, comfortable and functional alternative to conventional dentures.
Reconstructive surgery to address hard and soft tissue injuries in the upper and/or lower jaws resulting from injury or trauma, tumor surgery or long-term denture wear.
Diagnosis and treatment of infections in the maxillofacial region, which can develop into life-threatening emergencies if not treated promptly and effectively.
Treatment and repair of injuries to the face, jaws, mouth and teeth caused by trauma. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are experts in treating trauma, including fractures of the upper and lower jaws and orbits, and the cosmetic management of facial lacerations.
Surgical correction of oral and facial deformities caused by differences in skeletal growth between the upper and lower jaws; and congenital deformities like cleft lip and palate, which occur when all or a portion of the oral-nasal cavity does not grow together during fetal development.
Cosmetic facial surgery.
Surgical management of disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). When combined with palliative and routine general dental care from your dentist, TMJ surgery can help to attain or promote jaw and bite function.
