Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, surgical treatment, and management of diseases, injuries, and abnormalities affecting the soft and hard tissues of the mouth, jaw, and facial regions. It aims to address both the functional and aesthetic aspects of conditions involving structures such as the tongue, cheeks, lips, salivary glands, etc., across all age groups.

In oral and maxillofacial surgery, both the medical and aesthetic treatment of any kind of problem in the oral, jaw, and facial regions, whether inherited or acquired pathologically, is evaluated and addressed.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

Jaw joint disorders refer to the discomfort experienced in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and the surrounding soft tissues, which connect the lower jaw to the upper jaw. If left untreated, they can lead to serious symptoms. The earlier the treatment begins, the more successful it tends to be. Jaw joint disorders can result from various causes and can lead to several conditions. These conditions include:

  • Making noise from the jaw while eating
  • Locking or catching of the jaw
  • Pain
  • Limited mouth opening


Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth, which typically emerge between the ages of 17 and 25 in the back of the jaw, are molars. Wisdom teeth, which erupt embedded in bone, may need to be extracted to prevent potential infections and to prevent crowding of other teeth in the jaw.

These reasons

  • Caries
  • Gum Disease (Pericoronitis)
  • Orthodontic Reasons
  • Formation of Cysts




Impacted Teeth

A tooth is termed “impacted” when it fails to emerge in its expected position within the oral cavity and remains submerged beneath the jawbone. Canines, premolars, incisors, and wisdom teeth can all remain impacted in the mouth. There are various reasons why teeth may become impacted. These include:

  • Early loss of primary (baby) teeth can lead to insufficient development of the jawbone, resulting in crowding. Consequently, teeth may become impacted.
  • Moreover, after the premature loss of a baby tooth, adjacent teeth may shift, causing inadequate space for the eruption of the permanent tooth, leading to impaction.
  • If cavities present in the mouth during growth and development are left untreated, teeth may erupt crookedly or become impacted.
  • When the anatomical width of the jaw is narrower than the width required for existing teeth, some teeth may become impacted or cause misalignment.
