Types of Oral and Maxillofacial Procedures

Their roles focus on diagnosing and treating anomalies and malformations in the mouth, face, neck, and jaws. Oral and maxillofacial procedures are complex and require highly trained specialists. Some of the most common OMS procedures and treatments include the following:

Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery

Cleft lip and cleft palate are malformations that occur in babies during the early stages of pregnancy. A cleft lip is a small split that separates the upper lip. The split can sometimes extend to the nose, exposing the upper gum, teeth, and jaw. Conversely, a cleft palate is a separation in the roof of the mouth. A child can have one or both conditions. Fortunately, the deformity is treatable through oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Corrective Jaw Surgery

Corrective jaw surgery focuses on treating jaw deformities and dental irregularities. It helps restore dental functions such as biting, chewing, and speaking. It also treats breathing problems by opening up your airways. You can be a candidate for corrective jaw surgery if you have a receding chin, sleep apnea, or a protruding jaw.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Wisdom teeth are the far-most molars at the back of the mouth. They are the last permanent teeth to appear in an adult. However, your wisdom teeth can emerge incorrectly, leading to impacted teeth. They can cause several dental issues, including teeth misalignment and dental decay. Your oral and maxillofacial surgeon can resolve the issue through wisdom tooth extraction.

Sinus Elevation

Sinuses are air-filled channels in the nasal cavity above the upper teeth and behind the cheek. They humidify inhaled air and secrete mucus to protect you against infections. Your sinuses might move out of position due to facial trauma or bone loss, making it challenging to place dental implants. Sinus elevation is an OMS procedure that helps create room for tooth implants in the upper jaw.
