Maxillofacial Surgery

Maxillofacial surgery is a specialized field of dentistry that involves surgical procedures to treat defects, injuries, or diseases affecting the face, jaw, or mouth. It encompasses a wide range of oral and facial surgeries, including corrective jaw surgery, facial trauma reconstruction, cleft lip and palate repair, facial tumor removal, and orthognathic surgery to correct jaw and bite abnormalities. Maxillofacial surgery is often performed in collaboration with other medical professionals, such as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, and otolaryngologists. The goal of maxillofacial surgery is to restore function, aesthetics, and overall quality of life for patients with complex oral and facial conditions.
