Oral and maxillofacial surgery can correct or rebuild the face after trauma or disease, or for cosmetic reasons.
Some of the common concerns for seeing an oral maxillofacial Consultant are:
The oral and maxillofacial surgery departments at our hospitals provide treatment for a wide range of conditions including:
Orthodontics is a special type of dentistry, which corrects irregularity of the teeth and jaws.
A Consultant orthodontist has had extensive hospital training and can advise you about your bite and the arrangement of your teeth. Modern treatment techniques deliver a healthy, aesthetic smile along with good jaw function.
You may need a tooth removed for one or more of the following reasons: tooth decay, periodontal (gum) disease, trauma, dental abscess, failed root-canal treatment and other medical reasons. Wisdom teeth often need removed – they are the teeth at the back of your mouth.
Most teeth are removed under a local anaesthetic, meaning that you are awake during the procedure, but your mouth is numb. Removing a tooth is usually a safe and effective way to prevent your symptoms from coming back.
Mouth ulcers are very common, and very uncomfortable. Investigations and biopsies of problems with the skin inside your mouth are usually carried out under local anaesthetic.
By sending some of the abnormal skin to be looked at underneath the microscope, we can then tell what it is. We then advise whether any further treatment is necessary, or whether all of the abnormality has been removed.
This is the removal of non-cancerous skin lesions on your face, either because they have become problematic or because you wish to have them removed for cosmetic reasons.
It works by usually cutting out or shaving off unsightly or troublesome moles, warts or cysts. The area is then either left to heal or sewn together. The sample is sent to be looked at underneath the microscope to be sure that it was benign.
Sometimes lumps form in the salivary glands – the glands in your mouth that produce saliva. Following an investigation of a salivary gland lump by your GP and the decision to have it removed, this operation is usually carried out under general anaesthetic.
The salivary gland, or part of the salivary gland containing the lump, is removed and sent to the laboratory to be investigated underneath a microscope. The skin overlying the salivary gland is then closed with stitches. You will usually need to spend the night of the operation in hospital.
