Maxillofacial surgery is the treatment of problems affecting the mouth, teeth, gums, jaws and related facial structures. Procedures are often performed on patients with skeletal and dental irregularities that occur as a result of congenital defects, injury, disease or other factors. Maxillofacial surgery is also performed to treat patients with oral cancer, tumors and cysts of the jaws.
Patients with these conditions may have an abnormal or unbalanced facial appearance, and may have difficulty chewing, swallowing or speaking due to their jaw irregularities. The two-fold goal of maxillofacial surgery is to treat the problem and achieve the most aesthetically pleasing result possible.
Maxillofacial surgery procedures performed include the following:
- Wisdom tooth removal
- Tooth extractions
- Placement of dental implants
- Bone grafting
- Orthognathic and reconstructive surgery
- Treatment of TMJ disorders
- Surgical repair of traumatic injury, cancers and tumors, and oral diseases
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap used to replace damaged or missing teeth to restore the appearance of the smile and help protect against further damage and conditions such as gum disease. Your dentist will help you decide which type of crown is best for you after a thorough evaluation of your condition.
Dental crowns are placed during a series of two office visits. This first involves preparing the tooth and creating an impression from which the crown is made. The tooth is also thoroughly cleaned and shaped during this appointment, and a temporary crown is placed. The permanent crown is then placed with cement after a few weeks.
