DENTAL & MAXILLOFACIAL Unit
The maxillae are two bones that come together at the roof of your mouth to form the upper jaw in humans. This is where the term “maxillo” comes from. Likewise, facial is more self-explanatory, referring to the face. Thus, maxillofacial surgery deals with any diseases, disorders, injuries or defects that affect either the jaw or facial regions of a person. Maxillofacial surgeons can treat both functional and aesthetic problems associated with the face and jaw, and often perform facial reconstructive procedures for those who have suffered facial trauma or other injuries, as well as procedures to treat disorders such as TMD/TMJ and malocclusion and cancer of jaws and face.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS or OMFS) specializes in treating many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty. In countries such as the UK, Australia, New Zealand and most of Europe, it is recognized as both a specialty of medicine and dentistry, and a dual degree in medicine and dentistry is compulsory.
The Maxillofacial department has been an integral part of the JBC Hospital.
