ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL

SURGERY AND ORTHODONTICS

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is surgery to correct a wide spectrum of diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws, and the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. It is a recognized international surgical specialty, and it is one of the nine specialties of dentistry recognized by the American Dental Association.

Oral Surgeons: Changing Lives with a Smile

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the only recognized dental specialists who, after completing dental school, are surgically trained in an American Dental Association-accredited hospital-based residency program for a minimum of four years.  Their training focuses almost exclusively on the hard and soft tissue of the face, mouth, and jaws, and their knowledge and surgical expertise uniquely qualify them to diagnose and treat the functional and aesthetic conditions in this part of the body.

Orthodontics and Oral Surgery

It is estimated that ​5% of Orthodontic cases will require corrective jaw surgery in combination with their Orthodontic treatment.  Surgical procedures correct the discrepancy of the jaws that are beyond Orthodontic tooth movement alone. Orthodontists and Oral Surgeons work together to solve these complex tooth and jaw issues. These combination treatments generally complete faster than regular orthodontics alone.

 

Corrective Jaw Surgery

Corrective jaw or orthognathic surgery is performed in which the upper jaw, lower jaw, and chin may be repositioned to correct minor and major skeletal and dental irregularities, including the misalignment of jaws and teeth which can improve chewing, speaking, and breathing. Difficulty chewing or biting food, excessive wear of teeth, a receding chin, a protruding jaw, or sleep apnea may indicate the need for corrective jaw surgery.
