The maxillofacial and orthodontics department offers extensive services relating to conditions of the head, neck and mouth.
Our department treats a range of conditions including trauma to the face and jaws, head and neck infections, various cancers of the head and neck, salivary gland diseases, thyroid diseases, facial deformities, jaw joint conditions, facial pain, removal of heavily decayed or wisdom teeth, cysts and tumours of the jaws, and severe oral ulceration. We may also treat patients requiring routine treatment, but with significant medical problems that may complicate their care.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry which is concerned with the growth and development of the face, and we diagnose, prevent and treat problems in these areas in order to improve dental health, function and aesthetics through the use of different types of braces.
Our surgeons may work alongside other specialists, such as oncologists, plastic surgeons and ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons and dermatologists.
