Maxillo-Facial & Oral Surgeon

Maxillo-facial and oral surgery is the surgical specialty that deals with the diagnosing and treating of diseases and abnormalities affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck.

Wisdom Teeth

Serious problems can develop from impacted wisdom teeth, i.e. pain, infection, and crowding or damage to adjacent teeth. If you have wisdom teeth they should be evaluated for possible problems.

Oral Cancer

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and pink in colour. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer.

Dental Implants

Anyone who is missing teeth or wearing dentures is a candidate for dental implants, and can benefit from increased chewing efficiency and improved appearance or speech.
