What Is Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery training requires an additional 4 to 6 years of hospital based surgical and anesthesia training after graduation from dental school. As Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, we manage a wide variety of problems relating to the mouth, teeth and facial regions. We practice the full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery with expertise ranging from dental implant placement and wisdom tooth removal to corrective jaw surgery for function and aesthetics, and treating snoring problems. This also includes techniques designed to rebuild bone structure with minimal surgical intervention and optimal patient comfort. We can also diagnose and treat facial pain, facial injuries and fractures, and temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders.
