Taking the confusion out of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery procedures

For many people, oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) is often confusing and can seem very daunting. However, once patients find out more information about particular treatments, they are far more at ease.

A highly-skilled OMS surgeon is well qualified to perform a wide range of medical and dental procedures from performing simple tooth extractions, to carrying out dental implants, undertaking extensive facial reconstruction, and treating oral cancers.

The purpose of this section of our website is to provide procedural information for the most commonly undertaken procedures that Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons deliver, so that patients and interested members of the public can be better informed.
