Facial Trauma: Facial trauma, also called maxillofacial trauma, is any physical trauma to the face. Facial trauma can involve soft tissue injuries such as burns, lacerations and bruises, or fractures of the facial bones such as nasal fractures and fractures of the jaw, as well as trauma such as eye injuries.
Oro-Facial Deformities Dental and facial defects caused either from any accident or congenital disorders which can be reconstructed by various Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeries.
Corrective Jaw Surgery (Orthognathic surgery): Orthognathic surgery is a corrective jaw surgery that straightens or realigns your jaw, and corrects related skeletal deformities that a patient may need.
Congenital Malformations / Anomalies (Cleft Lip/Palate Deformities): Cleft lip and cleft palate, also referred as orofacial cleft is a group of conditions that includes cleft lip, cleft palate and both together. A cleft lip contains an opening in the upper lip that may extend into the nose. A cleft palate is when the roof of the mouth contains an opening into the nose. These disorders can result in feeding problems, speech problems, hearing problems, and frequent ear infections.
Cyst and Tumors of Jaws and Salivary Glands: Cyst and tumors of jaws and salivary glands include benign tumors and cysts, which are non-cancerous; those that are aggressive and growing, with the potential to become cancerous; and tumors that are malignant, meaning that they are cancerous. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons also treat oral cancer, severe infections of the oral cavity, salivary glands, jaw and neck.
Facial Cosmetic Surgery: The procedures, techniques, and principles of cosmetic surgery are entirely focused on enhancing a patient's appearance. Improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion are the key goals.
Temporomandibular Joint Surgeries (TMJ): The temporomandibular joint is the joint that connects your jaw to your skull. When this joint is injured or damaged, it can lead to a localized pain disorder called Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome. Diagnosing TMJ disorders can be complex and may require different diagnostic procedures Treatment may range from conservative dental and medical care to complex surgery. Depending on the diagnosis, treatment may include short-term non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for pain and muscle relaxation, bite plate or splint therapy, and even stress management counseling
Rhinoplasty: Rhinoplasty is surgery to reshape the nose. It can make the nose larger or smaller; change the angle of the nose in relation to the upper lip; alter the tip of the nose; or correct bumps, indentations, or other defects in the nose.
Reconstructive Surgery Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance.
