The specialty of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery has evolved from contemporary medical and dental surgical practices. It deals with afflictions of both the face and the oral cavity. Your first encounter with the specialist will allow him to identify a problem and suggest, should it be necessary, a medical or surgical treatment approach.
Certain procedures can be performed in our clinic under local anesthesia with or without sedation. These include: simple and complicated dental extractions, implants, apicoectomies, placement of traction appliances on impacted teeth for orthodontic purposes, biopsies, treatment of minor infections and finally the treatment of temporomandibular joint dysfunction. Procedures usually performed in a hospital setting include; osseous reconstruction of the jaws and facial bones, fracture repair of all facial bones, jaw surgery and cosmetic facial surgery.
