Dental and Oral Maxillofacial Surgery focuses on surgery for diseases of the face, jaw and mouth.
Maa Ram Pyari Dental Sciences Department has several specialities in the Dental Maxillofacial area, including Cosmetic Jaw Surgery (Orthognathic surgery), which is a surgery that helps fix cosmetic and functional problems based on underlying jaw deformities. This type of surgical procedure is a solution to severe bite problems where even orthodontic braces aren’t enough to correct the issue or where orthodontics might end up compromising one’s facial appearance. The bonus aspect of Orthognathic surgery is how much of an improvement it brings to the beauty and self esteem of an individual.
Dental Maxillofacial surgery is primarily performed on the bones of the jaws to change their positions. It may be indicated for functional, cosmetic, or health reasons. It is surgery commonly done on the jaws in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, which straightens the teeth.
Fractures of Jaws and Facial Bones
Fractures (broken bones) can involve the lower jaw, upper jaw, cheekbones, eye socket, and combinations of these bones. Treatments for these injuries are frequently managed under general anaesthesia.
