What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a surgical specialization of the dental profession. It is a hybrid specialty between medicine and dentistry. It includes the treatment of defects, injuries and aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaws and face. Patients who complain of pain or problems in this area are routinely referred to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon from their dentist or doctor. Oral and maxillofacial surgical specialists are recognized by the designation FRCD(C) (Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada)

Creating the best patient experience.

Comprehensive Coverage

Surgical Excellence means being able to perform a wide range of operations with the utmost care, safety and effectiveness. Every one of our surgeons is highly qualified to perform everything from wisdom teeth removal to grafting to complete facial reconstruction.

    • Anesthesia

      Anesthesia is at the core of what we offer at Blueridge OMS. Understandably, surgery can cause anxiety! At Blueridge OMS we offer our patients the safety and comfort required for any surgical procedure.

    • TMJ Surgery

      Facial injuries can impair a patient’s ability to eat, speak, interact with others, and perform other important functions. Facial injuries can have severe psychological and social consequences if not managed properly.

    • Trauma

      Facial injuries can impair a patient’s ability to eat, speak, interact with others, and perform other important functions. Facial injuries can have severe psychological and social consequences if not managed properly.

    • Alveolar Cleft Grafting

      Alveolar bone grafting is an important part of the reconstructive journey for many cleft lip and palate patients. Patients between the ages of 6-9 are candidates for alveolar cleft repair.

    • Wisdom Teeth

      Wisdom teeth are also known as the third molars and are located in the back of the mouth. Their development is usually completed between the ages of 16-21 and are the last teeth to erupt. ​If they come in properly and not mis-aligned, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. However, proper care by your general dentist is required including routine hygiene appointments as well as periodic X-rays.

    • Dental Rehabilitation With Implants

      A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed in the bone where teeth are missing. The implant has a connection with the overlying fabricated crown. The implant and crown will then function and look like the root and crown of a natural tooth.
