What is Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the surgical specialty which involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries and defects affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons treat patients with problems such as impacted teeth, misaligned jaws, oral cancer, tumours and cysts of the jaws and facial trauma following accidents. They may also perform facial cosmetic surgery.
Endodontics is treatment of diseased or injured tooth pulp and tissues surrounding the root of a tooth. Root canal treatment is the most common procedure done by endodontists, in addition to endodontic retreatment, treating cracked teeth and dental trauma.
