Maxillofacial Surgery

Maxillofacial surgery involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, defects, and injuries of the mouth, jaw, maxilla, and face, not only of congenital nature but also traumatic.

Orthognathic surgery is a type of maxillofacial surgery used to correct a wide range of skeletal and dental problems, including malocclusion, facial asymmetry, and obstructive sleep apnea.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) surgery is a type of surgery used to treat the joint that connects the mandible to the skull. Disorders of the temporomandibular joint can cause pain, difficulty opening and closing the mouth, and difficulty chewing.

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) surgery involves repositioning or replacing the disk that cushions the joint to restore normal functionality of the jaw joint.

Before the surgery, the maxillofacial surgeon will conduct a thorough evaluation of the patient’s medical and dental history and perform specific radiological examinations of the TMJ.

General anesthesia is required, and in some cases, hospitalization for one or two nights may also be necessary.

Possible interventions: maxillofacial surgery visit, maxillofacial surgery check-up, complex wisdom tooth extraction, removal or local demolition of a facial bone lesion, temporomandibular arthroplasty, insertion of prostheses into the facial bones.
