When to See an Oral-Maxillofacial Surgeon in Fort Lauderdale
- Posted on: Apr 4 2013
Oral-maxillofacial surgeon, what? Sounds like a mouthful but understanding what these doctors with such specialties is quite simple. An oral-maxillofacial surgeon, by and large, performs diagnostic procedures and treatments that affect the craniomaxillofacial complex — your mouth, jaw, face, neck, and the entire skull.
Here at our Fort Lauderdale oral and maxillofacial surgery practice, many of our patients present with problems that are congenital or traumatic in origin. The following conditions or problems will most likely lead you to seeking the services of an oral-maxillofacial surgeon in Fort Lauderdale:
- When you want to have a tooth extracted.
- When you want to have a tooth replaced with dental implants.
- When you want to have a jaw aligned with orthognathic surgery.
- When you want to have your jaw joints repaired via TMJ surgery.
- When you desire facial and jaw reconstruction following cancer surgery.
- When facial bone alignment is required following facial trauma.
- When you’re thinking about having mouth and face surgery for aesthetic purposes.
- Have an oral/facial tumor or cyst removed/reconstructed.
- Diagnose and correct sleep apnea.
