What is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon?

At The Wesley Hospital, our 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.

  • Benign pathologies (eg cysts and tumours of the jaws).
  • Common oral surgical problems (eg impacted teeth, dental implants).
  • Facial injuries/trauma.
  • Head and neck cancer.
  • Jaw and congenital facial disproportion.
  • Obstructive sleep apnoea.
  • Oral and maxillofacial pathology.
  • Oral cancer.
  • Salivary gland disease.
  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMD).
