A complex case benefits from the collaborative approach


Oral-Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical speciality which involves the diagnosis, surgery and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. Oral and Maxillofacial surgery is often referred to as the ‘bridge’ between medicine and dentistry. Our competent surgeons combine surgical training and dental expertise to treat diseases, injuries, tumours and deformities of the face, jaws, teeth, and surrounding structures, and restore both function and cosmetic appearance of the facial region. This includes head and neck cancers, salivary-gland diseases, facial disproportion, facial pain, temporomandibular joint disorders, cysts and tumours of the jaws as well as numerous problems affecting the oral mucosa, such as mouth ulcers and infections. They are also skilled at dental cosmetic surgery. Our oral-maxillofacial (OMF) surgeons work closely with orthopaedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, ENT surgeons, head and neck oncologists and craniofacial surgeons.
