What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?


Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the surgical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck. A maxillofacial surgeon in the UK is qualified in both dentistry and medicine. They are required to have intensive training and must pass fellowship examinations of The Royal College of Surgeons in Dentistry , General surgery and Maxillofacial surgery. They specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of any disease affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck. This includes surgical dentistry (impacted teeth, dental cyst, dental implants etc), injuries to the face, salivary gland problems, cancers of the head and neck, facial deformity, oral medicine, (ulcers, red/white patches, mouth cancer), facial pain and temporomandibular joint disorders. Maxillofacial surgeons also specialise in the complex reconstruction in the head and neck which may require free tissue transfer (free flap surgery) from other parts of the body. Maxillofacial surgeons also work closely with restorative dentists to plan and place dental implants.
