Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery encompasses the diagnosis, surgery and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.
We provide the following services under Oral-Maxillofcial Surgery :
1) Removal of Diseased and Impacted Teeth
Removal of impacted, damaged, and non-restorable teeth which include removal of impacted wisdom teeth, any unerupted or buried tooth under local anaesthesia.
We also provide sophisticated, safe, and effective anesthesia services including intravenous (IV) sedation and general anesthesia.
2) Dental Implants
In close collaboration with our restorative dentist, our Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons help plan and then place implants used to replace missing teeth. They can also reconstruct bone in places needing bone for implant placement and modify gingival (gum) tissue surrounding implants when necessary to make teeth placed on implants look even more natural.
3) Facial Trauma
Our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are trained, skilled and uniquely qualified to manage and treat facial trauma. Our surgeons work at hospitals and provide emergency treatment for facial injuries including: facial lacerations, lip lacerations, intra-oral lacerations, fractured teeth, avulsed (knocked out) teeth, fractured facial bones (cheek or nose) and fractured jaws (upper and lower jaw).
They care for facial injuries by repairing routine and complex facial skin lacerations (cuts), setting fractured jaw and facial bones, reconnecting severed nerves and ducts, and treating other injuries. These procedures include care of oral tissues, the jaws and the cheeks.
4) Orthognathic Surgery
In conjunction with our orthodontist, our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons surgically reconstruct and realign the upper and lower jaws into proper dental and facial relationships to provide improved biting function and facial appearance.
People who can benefit from orthognathic surgery include those with an improper bite or jaws that are positioned incorrectly.
Jaw growth is a gradual process, and in some instances, the upper and lower jaws may grow at different rates. Such result can affect chewing function, speech, long-term oral health, and appearance. Injury to the jaw and birth defects can also affect jaw alignment.
While orthodontics alone can correct many bite problems if only the teeth are involved, orthognathic surgery may be required if the jaws also need repositioning.
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.
