Dental & Maxillofacial Surgeon

Maxillofacial Surgeons specialize in the oral and maxillofacial regions of the head and neck. They diagnose and treat problems with wisdom teeth, facial pain, and misaligned jaws. Moreover, they treat accident patients for facial injuries, carry out reconstructive and dental implant surgery, and treat tumors, and congenital craniofacial abnormalities of the jaws or facial regions. Maxillofacial Surgeons work alongside other specialists such as orthodontists, prosthodontists, radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, ENT surgeons, neurosurgeons, and plastic surgeons.

The following types of surgery are performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons:

  • Facial trauma surgery for facial bone fractures and related soft tissue injuries
  • Reconstructive surgery of the face
  • Cleft lip and palate surgery
  • Congenital craniofacial deformities
  • Facial plastic surgery such as rhinoplasty, rhytidectomy, blepharoplasty, facial implants
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJD)
  • Snoring and sleep apnea correction surgery
  • Tumour and cancer surgery.
