An Overview of Oral and Faciomaxillary Surgery

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is surgery to correct a wide spectrum of diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is one of the nine specialties of dentistry recognized by the American Dental Association, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Royal College of Surgeons of England, Royal College of Dentists of Canada, Brazilian Federal Council of Odontology (CFO) and Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons.

An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a specialist surgeon treating the entire craniomaxillofacial complex (a term typically used to describe an area of focus for the study and treatment of certain congenital malformations or facial injuries) - anatomical area of the mouth, jaws, face, skull, as well as associated structures. Maxillofacial surgeons are initially qualified in dentistry and have undergone further surgical training.

Oral and Maxillofacial surgery includes several surgical procedures to treat the mouth and maxillofacial region.  Here I wrote an overview of some of the most important oral and maxillofacial treatments like Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery, Facial Scar Removal, Nose Shape or Size Correction, Ear Shape or Size Correction, Lip Shape or Size Correction, Facial Fracture Fixing, Jaw Bone Fracture Fixing, OralCancer Surgery, Facial Burn Scar Treatment, Reduced Mouth Opening, Jaw Cyst and Tumours Removal, Temporomandibular Joint Disease, Earlob Tear Repair, Facial Cosmetic Surgery, Orthoganthic Surgery, Wisdom Tooth Removal.

To Know more About Each of the treatment mentioned above just click the below link

Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery

Cleft lip and cleft palate, which can also occur together as cleft lip and palate, are variations of a type of split congenital deformity caused by abnormal facial development during pregnancy. Cleft palate (Palatoschisis) means a congenital split in the roof of the mouth. Cleft Lip (cheiloschisis) means a congenital cleft in the middle of the upper lip.

Facial scars can be a result of various causes, for instance, accidental injuries, skin conditions like acne and chicken pox or surgery. Since scars on the face are easily noticeable they can lead to lower self confidence or embarrassment on some occasions.

Lip Shape or Size Correction
Lip Size Correction
Nice lips can add to the overall facial beauty very much. However lip deformities are corrected by various treatments and surgeries. Lip surgery is a surgical specialty that aims at improving the appearance and also lips size and shape correction by increasing the fullness through lip enhancement.

A tumour is a growth caused by an overproduction of cells. A cyst is similar to a tumour, except that it is filled with fluid. Both tumours and cysts can form in the bone of the maxillofacial region, most frequently in the lower jaw bone. This growth can cause the formation of a cyst or tumour that can damage surrounding teeth and bone. So cyst must be removed as early as possible then only we can protect the bone and teeth from damage.

Torn earlobes are a common problem with pierced earlobes. Torn earlobes can easily be repaired. Maxillofacial surgeon will do the repair in their office, others in an outpatient surgery center. Most torn earlobes can be effectively and safely corrected using delicate surgical repair techniques. The procedure is routinely performed in the office under local anesthesia with an optional sedative.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars are the last teeth to erupt. This occurs usually between the ages of 17 and 25. If these impacted teeth are in an abnormal position their potential for harm should be assessed. To remove the wisdom tooth, the dentist will open up the gum tissue over the tooth and take out any bone that is covering the tooth. He will separate the tissue connecting the tooth to the bone and then remove the tooth. Sometimes the dentist will cut the tooth into smaller pieces to make it easier to remove. 

Facial Cosmetic Surgery is a surgery performed to improve the appearance of face. It removes wrinkles and other signs of aging from your face and gives you a Beautiful and attractive look.

Temporomandibular joint disorder, TMJD or TMJ syndrome, is an umbrella term covering acute or chronic pain, especially in the muscles of mastication and inflammation of the temporomandibular joint, which connects the mandible to the skull.

Facial Burn Scar Treatment

Burn is an injury that is caused by heat and it results in death of a tissue. Burn scars are among the most difficult to treat. The nerve endings may be damaged due to Burns which may result in immense pain and discomfort. Once a scar forms, it is permanent but may be made less visible or relocated surgically. Lasertechnology permits successful treatment of various types of burn scars.

Many people are unhappy with their nose's size or shape, perhaps it is large or crooked or maybe you feel it just does not fit in with the rest of your facial features. Nose correction surgery or nose reshaping is also often referred to as nose job surgery or Rhinoplasty surgery and can drastically alter your appearance. It involves a surgical procedure to alter the appearance of the nose.

The word “fracture” just means “break”, so facial fractures are broken facial bones. Facial fractures can occur singly (such as a broken nose) or in a combination (such as occurs in a severe motor vehicle accident). These are corrected by oral and maxillofacial surgeon very easily.

Oral Cancer is a cancer found in the mouth (oral cavity), on the lip, and the oropharynx (the part of the throat at the back of the mouth). Oral cancer is removed through surgery.

Ear correction surgery or pinning of the ears is medically known as otoplasty or pinnaplasty. This is a cosmetic procedure to help people who consider their ears to be too prominent.

Orthognathic surgery is a surgery to correct conditions of the jaw and face related to structure, growth, TMJ disorders, sleep apnea, malocclusion problems owing to skeletal disharmonies, or other orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces.

Trismus means difficulty in mouth opening in dentistry. Trismus is a common presentation by the patient in routine dental practice. This condition causes difficulty in opening mouth which in turn impairs eating, restricts access for dental procedures, interferes with oral hygiene and may adversely affect speech and facial appearance.
