Oral/Maxilliofacial Surgery


Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Treat Many Issues of Head, Neck, Face and Jaws

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons treat issues of the head, neck, face and jaws. These surgical specialties require training in dentistry, which is followed with a hospital residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery. General dentists refer many teeth and jaw problems to oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons handle difficult tooth extractions, insert metal dental implants to support artificial teeth or dentures, treat temporomandibular joint disease (TMJ), and perform trauma surgery and cleft palate reconstruction.
