Our procedures

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons provide patients with unique expertise in facial reconstructive surgery (primarily the mouth and jaw) including dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, bone grafting, and jaw surgery

About Our Specialty

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (OMFS) are uniquely trained to manage the diagnosis, surgical and medical treatment of diseases, as well as traumatic injuries and deformities of the mouth and facial region. OMFS are trained to correct the results of birth defects and accidents, tumours, missing and impacted teeth and malfunction of the jaw joints. To make procedures more comfortable for patients, various methods of sedation are available to patients, including local anaesthesia, intravenous conscious sedation, and general anaesthesia.

OMFS are dental specialists who are surgically trained in hospital-based residency programs and work with medical residents in numerous different medical specialities to gain comprehensive knowledge. This knowledge is focused on the mouth, jaw, face, muscles of the face, bone, and skin.
