Modern surgery has advanced to the point where the volume of information and technical skills required have led to surgeons specialising in specific fields, typically anatomical regions of the body, though occasionally a technique or patient type.

What is Maxillofacial Surgery?

Maxillofacial surgery, also referred to as oral surgery, is the medical specialty that specialises in treating conditions through surgical interventions which affect the mouth’s hard and soft tissues as well as the head, neck, face, and jaw. Maxillofacial surgeons or oral surgeons, are specialists in treating injuries to and diseases of the head, neck, mouth, jaw, and face.

Why are Maxillofacial Surgeries Done?

Maxillofacial surgery is performed to:
  • Improve jaw function/ movement
  • Relieve pain
Dental issues and conditions can be treated by maxillofacial surgery in a wide range of situations, including:
  • Persistent dental pain
  • Preparing for denture implants
  • Removing impacted teeth from the mouth
Other reasons to perform maxillofacial surgery include:
  • Repairing birth defects such as cleft lips and palates
  • Identifying and treating cancerous and non-cancerous growths in your head and neck
  • Determining the causes of persistent face pain
  • Treating facial injuries, such as maxillofacial tissue damage or facial fractures

Maxillofacial surgery can significantly enhance one's appearance, function, and pain.

Depending on the operation you had after maxillofacial surgery, your recovery will vary. For at least a few days, you’ll probably feel some pain, sensitivity, swelling, and bleeding. To make you comfortable, your doctor may advise taking painkillers. After maxillofacial surgery, seek medical attention if you experience any signs of infection or other complications:
  • Fever/chills
  • Abnormal swelling/pain
  • Salty, metallic or bad taste in the mouth
  • Excessive pus or blood
