Oral and maxillofacial surgeons must complete extra training and education beyond what is normal for a dentist. They put in at least 3 years of training in a hospital-based surgical program alongside medical residents in many different specialtiesincluding anesthesia. It is often seen as the bridge between medicine and dentistry, treating conditions that require expertise from both backgrounds.

Maxillofacial Surgery Treatments at FMS

Maxillofacial Surgery department at FMS is a team of experienced surgeons that has been working in the field for over 2 decades. Over the years the team has been very proficient in wide range of surgical procedures that are performed regularly. These include:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to emerge in the mouth, around 18yrs of age. When it starts emerging, the other teeth are mostly settled in their positions, and in some instances there is not enough space to accommodate the wisdom teeth. This leads to the teeth getting stuck within the jaw bone causing various problems ( sore gums, damage to other teeth, infection) and needs Surgical removal. The surgical procedure can be scary and uncomfortable for the patient if not handled correctly.
  • Our team of specialists has over the years devised standard procedures and protocols to minimize the pain, discomfort and complications that may result from surgical removal of wisdom teeth. We also have in-house advanced diagnostics like the CBCT scans, advanced equipment and fine instruments  that allow detailed view and therefore best treatment for even the most complicated conditions.
  • Advanced Dental Implants:
    Dental implants are the best options available for replacing missing teeth today. Many a times, loss of teeth is accompanied by loss of tooth bearing bone in the jaws which rules out traditional dental implant placement. Our team of implantologists is able to provide advanced procedures like bone grafting or specialized implants which are placed higher above the jaw-bones like Zygoma implants or Pterygoid implants. These are technically advanced procedure which benefits from the advanced diagnostic options as well as an experienced team for the best result. FMS dental offers every patient the best, in terms of both technology and experience.
  • Jaw joint (TMJ) problems. The Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) connects your lower jaw to your skull. It’s that little “hinge” right in front of the ears. Problems with the ideal functioning of this joint may cause issues like pain in your jaw, jaw-popping, stiffness, and headaches. Diagnosis and treatment for these conditions is complex. We have teams of experienced and specially trained Maxillofacial Surgeons and Diagnosticians to provide you the best care.
  • Treatment of such problems may start with oral devices, pain medication, and ice packs but in more severe cases may requires arthrocentesis (injections within the joint) or even open surgery. We bring the surgical experience to provide full range of these treatments in-house.
  • Cosmetic Jaw correction (Orthognathic) surgery. It is the surgery of facial bones to achieve significant changes in the appearance of the face. It is done by surgically improving the position and relation of the jaws as well as the teeth that provides improved looks as well as better speech, breathing or chewing experience in many cases. It’s an option for people with excessive overbites or underbites, trouble chewing or swallowing, certain birth defects, or sleep apnea. We at FMS have a wide experience with such procedures that have dramatically improved not only the looks but also the quality of life for many patients over the years. Our results are helped by the full face scans and 3D printing available in-house that helps with simulating the entire surgery and providing predictable and satisfactory outcomes.
  • Facial and Jaw injuries. Face and mouth region are very commonly affected in many types of mishaps or accidents resulting in injuries that can cause fractures of jaws or other bones in the face. We have a long track record for fixing wide variety of such broken bones in the face. Facial injuries can also result in long term issues like scarring or other cosmetic changes in the facial structures. Our surgeons are well versed with managing such long term defects resulting from such accidents as well.
  • Cysts and tumors of the jaws. These are pathological growths which damage the jaws from inside. Usually they present like small swelings in the initial period, but can cause severe destruction over time. We have dealt with such issues regularly and proficiently. the experience available in our team allows best possible surgical treatment while minimizing the complications and maintaining your quality of life after the treatment.
