What Procedures are Performed By Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons


Posted on 11/22/2021 by Robert Leale
What Procedures are Performed By Oral and Maxillofacial SurgeonsOral and maxillofacial surgeons specialize in diagnosing and treating defects, injuries, and diseases involving the jaw, mouth, and face. This guide discusses some of the common procedures performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons.

Common Procedures OMS Perform


Dental implant surgery is a procedure done by OMS. If you have a missing tooth, dental implants will help fill the gap and restore your smile. During this surgery, the surgeons replace the tooth root with an implant. The implant provides a firm base for the artificial tooth, commonly known as the crown.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons can also perform wisdom teeth extractions. It is very common for wisdom teeth to erupt incorrectly. When wisdom teeth fail to erupt properly, they could cause overcrowding or become impacted. In that case, our maxillofacial surgeons will perform a wisdom teeth removal surgery that will help restore your oral health. However, it is essential to note that not all wisdom teeth have to be extracted. If they erupt correctly and don't cause any dental problems, an extraction won't be necessary.

Corrective jaw surgery is another common surgery performed by maxillofacial surgeons. Also known as orthognathic surgery, corrective jaw surgery helps address a wide range of oral problems by correcting misaligned jaws. A person might need corrective jaw surgery if they experience challenges breathing, speaking, or chewing. You can also consider corrective jaw surgery if you want to improve your facial appearance.

With expansive knowledge on how the jaw comes together, maxillofacial surgeons can also treat facial injuries and trauma. For instance, if you sustain a fractured jaw in an accident, our maxillofacial surgeons can fix it. Therefore, you should come in for checks and possible treatment if you have sustained facial trauma.
