Oral and Maxillofacial surgery

Maxillofacial surgery is a purely surgical specialty of dentistry that deals with problems of the jaws, face and mouth. In the spectrum of diseases and disorders of the oral and maxillofacial region, the oral and maxillofacial surgeon treats:

  • Simple and complex surgical extractions, focusing on impacted wisdom teeth
  • Preparation of the jaws for implants placement with bone grafting
  • Partial and full restorations of edentulous jaws with implants
  • Treatment of deformities of the jaws / face
  • Treatment of trauma of the jaws / face
  • Treatment of articulation problems (occlusion) of the jaws
  • Treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the mouth
  • Odontogenic infections

The majority of our patients in Adamantio are referred to the oral and maxillofacial surgeon for extraction of impacted wisdom teeth and biopsies of hyperplasia or malformation in the oral cavity. For more complex maxillofacial surgery procedures, patients are referred for treatment in a hospital facility.
