Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery includes the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, traumatic injuries, and developmental or genetic deformities of the face, mouth, dentition, jaws and neck. Functional, pathologic and cosmetic problems are managed with this treatment.
People who have worn dentures for an extended period of time can sometimes experience loss of gum tissue and even bone. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery can be a solution to correcting these problems. In extreme cases, maxillofacial surgery, including bone grafts, manipulation of soft tissues or even jaw realignment, may be performed to correct such problems
