Maxillofacial Surgery

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on Maxillofacial Surgery, a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, surgical 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. This intricate field combines dental, medical, and surgical expertise to offer solutions for a myriad of conditions, ranging from simple tooth extractions to complex reconstructive surgeries.

Maxillofacial Surgery, often referred to as oral surgery, is a unique discipline of dentistry that extends beyond general dental care. It encompasses a variety of procedures aimed at addressing conditions affecting the mouth, jaws, face, and neck. This specialty is not just about extracting teeth; it involves a broad range of surgical procedures including dental implants, corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery), facial trauma surgery, cleft lip and palate surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, and the treatment of oral cancers.
