What is Oral Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the dental specialty that includes the diagnosis and related treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects that involve both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft oral and maxillofacial structures tissues.
Because of their surgical and dental training, oral and maxillofacial surgeons are uniquely qualified to treat the face, mouth and jaw. They have extensive surgical and dental training and emphasize the importance of harmony between facial appearance and function.
