Maxillofacial Surgery

Maxillofacial Surgery, also known as oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS), is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on treating a wide range of conditions affecting the head, face, jaw, and neck. This comprehensive speciality combines dental and medical knowledge to address complex issues related to the mouth, teeth, jaws, and facial structures. Maxillofacial surgeons are uniquely trained to perform both surgical and non-surgical interventions, making them integral in restoring function, aesthetics, and overall well-being.
