ORAL & MAXILLOFACIAL SURGERY

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are unique among dental specialists in a number of ways. After completing four years of dental school, they go on to spend another four years in a hospital-based residency program for surgery. There, they are trained alongside other medical residents in the techniques of emergency medicine, general surgery and anesthesiology. In fact, they are the only health care specialists (aside from anesthesiologists) who can administer all levels of sedation, up to general anesthesia.

What oral and maxillofacial surgeons do:

  • Provide safe and effective office anesthesia.
  • Extract impacted and nonrestorable teeth (dentoalveolar surgery)
  • Replace lost teeth (dental implants)
  • Perform corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic jaw surgery)
  • Remove complex tumors (onocologic surgery)
  • Rebuild faces damaged by injury or disease (reconstructive surgery)
  • Relieve jaw pain (TMJ surgery)
  • Perform cosmetic surgery of the face, jaws and neck
