For ideal oral health, you want to have healthy teeth and great surrounding structures. Maxillofacial surgery (oral surgery) focuses on the neck, face, jaw, head, and soft and hard tissues of the mouth. It’s often combined with other dental treatments such as periodontal disease, orthodontics, and dental implants. It’s often required for the following:

  • Root canal damage or infection
  • Damaged/infected teeth
  • Periodontal disease
  • Snoring or sleep apnea
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • TMJ disorders
  • Jaw resorption

While the term “surgery” may be scary for some, the procedures are often gentle and use the safest and most successful methods. It comes with many advantages and can provide life-changing results!
