Oral and Maxillofacial Treatments

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialized branch of medicine that examines surgical interventions in the mouth, face, jaw and neck. This branch of surgery is usually followed by dentists and general surgeons.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery deals with many different conditions. Severe toothache, inflammation or decay may require surgery. Oral and maxillofacial surgery offers treatment methods for various conditions. These include tooth extraction, repair of jaw fractures and facial trauma, dental implantation, surgical removal of tumors and cysts, and treatment of fractures in the jaw.

What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?

Oral and maxillofacial surgery encompasses surgical interventions in the mouth, teeth and jaw area and is usually a combination of dentistry and surgery. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is separate from dental training. Additional surgical training is required to become a specialist in oral, facial and maxillofacial surgery. In this case, doctors focus on the oral and maxillofacial processes of patients using their knowledge of dentistry and surgery.

Treatments are usually performed under local or general anesthesia, prioritizing the comfort of patients. The care and recovery process after the jaw surgery intervention varies depending on the procedure performed. These interventions are performed to increase the health and freedom of life of the person. There are a wide range of treatment options for oral, dental and maxillofacial health.

Patients are often curious about the answer to the question “Does oral, dental and maxillofacial surgery fill?“. Oral, dental and maxillofacial surgery is generally not directly responsible for filling residues. Filling applications are usually performed by dentists or restorative dentists. The filling process picks up where it left off with the removal of decay and the filling of the remains, thus preserving the strength and protection of the tooth. However, in some special cases, it is possible to combine filling with oral, dental and maxillofacial surgery.

For example, after a tooth extraction, a bone filling can be applied to the area where the jawbone is missing before a dental implant is placed. In this case, the maxillofacial surgeon can perform bone filling casting to properly preserve the implant.

Other treatment methods and applications offered in this area are as follows:

  • Tooth Extraction: Teeth that are excessively decayed, broken, inflamed or unprotectable may need to be extracted surgically. Tooth extraction can be performed to relieve pain and infection, to protect other teeth or to prepare for dental care.
  • Dental Implantation: Also known as the treatment of missing teeth, this method aims to relieve the jaw by using artificial dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants provide a structural, aesthetic solution to replace missing teeth.
  • Oral Tumor and Cyst Surgery: It is the surgical removal of tumors or cysts detected in the oral tissues. This can also be applied to determine whether the tumor is cancerous or not and to examine it pathologically.
  • Orthopedic Surgery: Surgical interventions for changes in jaw development or jaw disorders due to certain diseases. This includes issues such as jaw growth problems, lower and upper jaw retardation or stenosis.
  • Repair of Facial Trauma: Surgical repair of bone fractures and soft tissue spores due to trauma to the head and face. This includes injuries sustained during accidents, sports injuries or surgical procedures.
  • Oral Aesthetic Surgery: Surgical interventions performed for aesthetic purposes. This is the separation of procedures such as gum color corrections, gingival changes, gingival contour treatments.
