Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery services that we provide include:
1) Removal of Diseased and Impacted Teeth (including wisdom teeth)
2) Placement of Dental Implants
In close collaboration with our restorative team, our Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons help to meticulously plan for the placement of implants in order to replace missing teeth. Where required, they are also responsible for bone and gum augmentation procedures (e.g., bone grafting) in order to maximise the success and aesthetics of implant restorations.
3) Orthognathic Surgery
Orthognathic surgery is used to correct skeletal and dental discrepancies (i.e., incorrect/detrimental jaw and tooth positions). These discrepancies can be caused by uneven rates of upper and lower jaw growth, jaw injuries, and birth defects. In cases where such discrepancies are unable to be corrected by orthodontic treatment (e.g., braces) alone, orthognathic surgery may be required adjunctively. Doing so can help to improve facial appearance, and to ensure proper alignment and function of the teeth.
