Oral surgery is used to treat a variety of specialized conditions related to the mouth, jaw, skull and facial structures. Maxillofacial surgeons ― highly trained surgical specialists ― are dedicated to the care and treatment of injury, disease and defects in both the hard and soft tissues of the mouth and the maxillofacial region (the face and jaw).
With extensive training in both the medical and dental fields, oral surgeons address both functional and aesthetic issues. This specialized approach is useful for treating everything from impacted wisdom teeth to a malformed or misaligned jaw.
Oral and maxillofacial surgical techniques (OMS) are used to repair damage related to accident or injury as well as congenital deficiencies or defects. From an aesthetic perspective, oral surgery is a highly effective approach for improving the appearance of the chin, cheeks and other facial features.
Dental restoration is another OMS specialization, including the preparation and placement of dental implants, ridge augmentation and permanent dentures.
For patients who suffer from pain and reduced quality of life from sleep apnea, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders or oral pathology, OMS practitioners are uniquely qualified to provide appropriate, compassionate treatment.
Today’s highly advanced technology provides oral surgeons with a variety of three-dimensional facial imaging techniques, as well as effective approaches to bone grafting, replacement and augmentation.
To enhance the body’s natural healing abilities, maxillofacial specialists use innovative platelet-rich plasma and platelet-derived growth factor technology to accelerate recovery and reduce discomfort.
