Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical specialty which includes the finding, surgery and adjunctive treatment of sicknesses, damages and deformities including both the useful and tasteful parts of the hard and delicate tissues of the oral and maxillofacial area.
All the more basically put, the oral and maxillofacial specialist is the orthopedic specialist of the facial district. He or she is a person who addresses issues running from the evacuation of affected teeth to the repair of facial trauma.
OMF surgery is unique in requiring a dual qualification in medicine and dentistry, and is often seen as the bridge between medicine and dentistry, treating conditions that require expertise from both backgrounds such as head and neck cancers, salivary gland diseases, facial disproportion, facial pain, temporomandibular joint disorders, impacted teeth, cysts and tumours of the jaws as well as numerous problems affecting the oral mucosa such as mouth ulcers and infections.
