Oral Surgery vs. Maxillofacial Surgery
Though very similar, oral and maxillofacial surgeries are not the same.
Maxillofacial surgeons are oral surgeons with more advanced medical training that allows them to perform complex facial procedures in addition to the traditional procedures of standard oral surgeons.
Oral Surgery Procedures in Elkins Park
Oral surgeons get their title because they are almost entirely focused on treating conditions in the mouth. Some of the most common oral surgery procedures include:
- Dental crowns
- Denture fittings
- Surgical orthodontics, such as bridges and dental implants
- Root canals
- Tooth extractions
- Wisdom tooth removal
- Impacted wisdom tooth removal
Oral surgeons can also treat conditions involving the temporomandibular joint, the joint in which your skull and lower jaw meet, such as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ), as well as oral infections.
Maxillofacial Surgery Procedures
As maxillofacial surgery is a more advanced form of oral surgery, it involves more complex or delicate procedures on the jawbone and face as well as in and around the mouth. Examples of maxillofacial surgery include:
- Restoring facial appearance and structure after a facial trauma or injury
- Complicated tooth extractions
- Oral Pathology, including the removal of growths and reconstructive surgeries after removals
- Corrective surgeries for hereditary deformities to increase appearance and function
