Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects of the mouth, jaws, face, and neck. OMFS surgeons are also qualified to provide general dental care, including preventive care, restorative care, and endodontic care.

What are the Treatments/Procedures Followed

OMFS surgeons perform a wide range of treatments and procedures, including:

  • Dental implants
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Treatment of maxillofacial infections
  • Treatment of injuries to the face, teeth, mouth, and jaws
  • Surgeries to correct facial and oral deformities
  • Facial cosmetic procedures
How Important is it to be Board Certified in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?

Board certification is a voluntary process that demonstrates a surgeon’s expertise in a particular field of medicine. In the United States, the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (ABOMS) is the only organization that offers board certification in OMFS.

Does the Treatment Require X-rays?

X-rays are often required before OMFS treatment to provide a clear picture of the disorder in the teeth or bones. X-rays can also be used to monitor the progress of treatment and to assess the results.
