Given their specialization, these professionals offer the highest care standards, ensuring patient safety and care while achieving desirable outcomes. Below are the top three issues requiring an oral and maxillofacial surgeon intervention.

Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction, TMJ

TMJ comprises a complex group of problems on the jaw joints, causing pain and reduced movement to the joints and surrounding muscles. The condition can occur due to dental infections, facial neuralgia, headaches, and tumors. Treatment starts with ruling out mechanical joint problems such as clicking sounds and pain. Where your TMJ is due to grinding or clenching, affecting your ability to open your mouth, your oral and maxillofacial surgeon will recommend surgical intervention where medication and therapy fail.

Dental Implants

Dental implants replace missing teeth due to trauma, gum disease, or cancer. Your OMS will place the artificial tooth on your jaw to allow bonding with the natural bone. Once intact, the artificial roots will support one or more crowns, allowing you to resume regular teeth functions.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth erupt as the last teeth, usually in the late teenage or early twenties. However, at this time, the jaw often lacks enough space to accommodate them, resulting in chronic pain, crowding, impaction, and increased risk of infection. By contacting an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, you will undergo a safe extraction of your wisdom teeth and avoid the above risks.
