Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

An oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) focuses on treating diseases, injuries, and defects in the head, neck, face, jaw, and mouth.

OMS specialists are surgically trained in hospital residency programs, so they have unparalleled experience in a number of conditions.

When do I need to see an oral and maxillofacial specialist?

Superior Surgical Skill for Safe, Precise Treatment

Advanced Surgical Training

Most oral surgeons undergo about four to six years of additional training in comparison to a general dentist. This includes participating in a medical residency program. As such, they are extensively knowledgeable in a broad range of conditions and are equipped with advanced surgical skills to address these issues.

Unparalleled Precision

Due to their extensive training, oral surgeons know the best techniques to not only ensure an optimal outcome but also minimize your risk of complications. Their surgical skill affords them the ability to make informed decisions when planning and performing your treatment for incredibly safe, high-quality care. For these reasons, dentists will typically refer patients to an oral surgeon for complex procedures.

Reconstructive & Cosmetic Capabilities

These distinctions are especially important for patients who have experienced facial injuries. Oral surgeons are typically capable of performing reconstructive and plastic surgeries to help restore your appearance after an accident. This is an important part of the healing process after trauma.

Tools & Technology Used by Oral Surgeons

Your doctor may use a number of tools to assess your condition:

  • 3-D printing
  • Cone beam CT imaging
  • Surgical guides for dental implants
  • Digital impressions
  • Digital x-rays
  • Intraoral cameras
  • Laser therapy

Using advanced equipment and techniques, oral surgeons can provide an accurate diagnosis, better treatment planning, and optimal outcomes.

The Value of Expert Surgical Care

"Your oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS) has the specialized education and training in the complexities of the bone, skin, muscles and nerves involved, to ensure you get the best possible results. " American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

Do Oral Surgeons Only See Referred Patients?

Since oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specialists, you will typically be referred to them by your dentist or general medical practitioner based on the severity of your condition. However, a referral is not required to see this type of doctor.
