Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
Patients suffering from face-related diseases, including their mandible can opt for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. The surgeries are done to correct improper skeletal appearances in the face and jaw. Procedures available at Apollo Hospitals include Cosmetic Jaw Surgery (Orthognathic Surgery) which corrects underlying jaw deformities, especially if the patient often experiences bite problems which cannot be corrected by implementing traditional braces. Cosmetic Jaw Surgery bears the benefit of improved beauty and self-esteem in the long run.
Other surgical procedures involve Navigation Surgery, a highly advanced and first of its kind at Apollo Specialty Hospital used to correct and fix injuries directly to the face. Temporo Mandibular (Jaw) Joint Surgery corrects the joint or hinge, allowing patients to open and close their mouths. The surgery is mainly for people with a distorted face growth. Other services available at Apollo Hospitals additionally include Dental Implants and cyst and tumour removal around the face and jaw. Once the cyst or tumour is identified, doctors will provide treatment options, followed by face and jaw reconstruction as needed.
