Oral & Maxillofacial

What Is Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?


Oral & Maxillofacial surgery (OMS) is surgery of the mouth, face and jaws 

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons are specialists in the diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of disorders affecting the facial complex and skeleton, including the jaws and oral cavity. 

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons train in both dentistry and medicine with post-graduate training in a hospital setting.

Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons treat conditions such as impacted teeth, dental implants, jaw and congenital facial disproportion, facial trauma, oral cancer, salivary gland disease, temporomandibular joint disorders, and cysts and tumours of the jaws.

Patients are referred to our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon in one of our two dental practices in Takapuna or Queenstown by both general and specialist dental and medical practitioners.
