Maxillofacial Surgery

Maxillofacial surgery is a specialized branch of surgery that focuses on treating conditions and injuries affecting the head, face, neck, jaws, and the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. The term “maxillofacial” refers to the combined areas of the upper jaw (maxilla) and face.

This surgical specialty encompasses a wide range of procedures, including corrective surgeries for congenital anomalies, trauma reconstruction, and the management of various pathologies. Maxillofacial surgeons are highly trained professionals who often work collaboratively with other medical and dental specialists to provide comprehensive care.

3rd Molar Surgery

Third molar surgery, commonly referred to as wisdom tooth extraction, is a common dental procedure aimed at removing the third set of molars that typically emerge during late adolescence or early adulthood. Wisdom teeth often cause problems due to their misalignment, impaction, or lack of space in the jaw. The surgery is usually performed by oral surgeons or experienced dentists. Before the procedure, diagnostic imaging is used to assess the position of the wisdom teeth. During the surgery, the patient is typically given anesthesia to ensure comfort, and the oral surgeon carefully extracts the problematic teeth. Following the procedure, patients receive post-operative care instructions to manage pain and swelling, and they are advised on proper oral hygiene practices during the recovery period.


Apisectomy, also known as a root-end resection, is a dental surgical procedure aimed at treating persistent infections or issues associated with the root tip of a tooth. Typically performed by an endodontist, an Apisectomy involves the removal of the infected or damaged portion of the tooth’s root along with surrounding inflamed tissue. This procedure is often considered when a conventional root canal treatment has not effectively resolved the issue, and it allows the dentist to address the problem directly at the source.

During an Apisectomy, the dentist accesses the root tip through a small incision in the gum tissue, removes the affected portion, and seals the end of the root to prevent further infection. This surgical intervention is a valuable option for preserving a natural tooth that might otherwise require extraction. Patients undergoing an Apisectomy can generally expect a brief recovery period and improved oral health as the infection is effectively treated at its origin.



Alveoloplasty is a dental surgical procedure designed to reshape and smooth the jawbone’s alveolar ridge, which supports the teeth. This surgical intervention is commonly performed in conjunction with tooth extractions or denture placement to create a more favorable and even foundation for dental prosthetics. The alveolar ridge may become uneven or irregular due to tooth loss, extraction, or other oral conditions, and alveoloplasty helps ensure proper healing and optimal fitting of dental appliances.

During alveoloplasty, the oral surgeon carefully sculpts the bony ridge, removing any irregularities or sharp edges. This process promotes better alignment and stability for dentures or dental implants, contributing to improved functionality and aesthetics. Alveoloplasty is a routine and well-tolerated procedure that enhances the overall success of restorative dental treatments while optimizing the patient’s oral health and comfort.

Other Minor Oral Surgical Procedures

Apart from Apisectomy and Alveoloplasty, there are several other minor oral surgical procedures commonly performed by oral surgeons or trained dentists to address various dental issues:

  1. Frenectomy: This procedure involves the removal or modification of the frenulum, the small fold of tissue that connects the lips, tongue, or cheeks to the underlying structures. It is often done to correct speech issues, orthodontic concerns, or to improve the mobility of the tongue.

  2. Biopsy: When there is a suspicious lesion or abnormal tissue in the oral cavity, a biopsy may be performed to determine whether it is cancerous or benign. The removal and examination of a small tissue sample help in making an accurate diagnosis and planning appropriate treatment.

  3. Gingivectomy: This procedure involves the removal of excess gum tissue, often performed to treat periodontal disease, enhance aesthetics, or prepare the mouth for restorative work. It helps create a healthier gum line and can improve the appearance of the teeth.

  4. Crown Lengthening: Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure that exposes more of the tooth structure by reshaping the gum and bone tissue. It is often done to facilitate restorative or cosmetic treatments, such as the placement of crowns or veneers.

Jaw tumors and cysts

Jaw tumors and cysts are pathological conditions that can affect the maxillofacial region, posing challenges to oral health and overall well-being. Tumors are abnormal growths of cells, which can be benign or malignant, and may arise from the bone, soft tissues, or both in the jaw. Cysts, on the other hand, are fluid-filled sacs that can form within the jawbone, often as a result of infections, developmental issues, or other underlying factors. Both tumors and cysts can lead to swelling, pain, and functional problems, impacting speech, eating, and facial aesthetics.

Facial Trauma Surgery

Facial trauma surgery is a specialized branch of oral and maxillofacial surgery dedicated to treating injuries to the face and jaw. These injuries, often resulting from accidents or trauma, can involve fractures, soft tissue damage, and disruptions to facial structures. Facial trauma surgeons employ various surgical techniques to restore function, appearance, and overall well-being. From fracture reduction and fixation to soft tissue repair and reconstructive procedures, the focus is on achieving optimal healing and minimizing the impact of trauma on both aesthetics and functionality. This field plays a crucial role in helping individuals recover from facial injuries, promoting physical and emotional healing.
