Oral and maxillofacial surgery can repair injury and reduce pain
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon like the Doctor is trained to diagnose and treat a variety of dental issues, as well as head and neck conditions and injuries. These surgeons spend four years in dental school, followed by four to six additional years of formal training on the craniomaxillofacial complex. This is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA) and international organizations.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons commonly treat conditions such as:
Wisdom teeth removal
Cleft lip and palate
Facial cosmetic surgery
Biopsy and removal of oral cancers, tumors and cysts
