Maxillofacial Surgery

 

Maxillofacial Surgery is a specialization of dentistry which focuses on problems around the mouth, jaw, and neck. Doctors who decide to pursue maxillofacial surgery as a career typically attend dental school and than an additional residency for maxillofacial surgery. Because of the important nerves which run through the face, training can take several years before a doctor may sit for medical board exams. This ensures that the surgeon is safe to practice.

A dentist or orthodontist may refer a patient for maxillofacial surgery if an issue in the mouth is too difficult to correct with orthodontics or basic dental procedures alone. A maxillofacial surgeon may remove severely impacted wisdom teeth, address facial pain, or fix overbites and jaw deformities. Typically, training for maxillofacial surgery includes reconstructive surgery, so that the surgeon can rebuild areas of the face which are in need of it.

After a severe accident, a patient may be referred to a maxillofacial surgeon if he or she has suffered severe facial injuries. Surgery can help to correct cosmetic and other damages to the face as a result of the accident. In addition to cleaning up the physical appearance of a damaged face, the surgeon can address nerve damage and other issues which may cause pain for the patient. Especially if the patient is treated quickly, the long term impacts of accident damages can be greatly reduced.
