Oral or maxillofacial surgery can become necessary when one suffers from disease, injury or defect in or around ones mouth. Oral surgery procedures range from treatments as simple as a tooth extractions to something as complex as repairing a cleft palate.
Oral and Maxillofacial Procedures
Maxillofacial or oral surgeons are experts in injury repair and dental extractions. After graduating from dental school, these surgeons have gone on to receive at least 4 additional years of training as a resident physician at a hospital or dental school. Many go on to obtain additional years of training in their choice of subspecialty.
In addition to developing exceptional surgical skills, these surgeons also receive training in intravenous sedation and general anesthesia.
Here are some of the procedures an oral or maxillofacial surgeon may perform:
- Removal of impacted teeth
- Surgical treatment for obstructive sleep apnea
- Lesion removal and biopsy
- Cosmetic or reconstructive surgery
- Treatment of facial infections
- Cleft lip or palate repair
