Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialty of dentistry that treats diseases and injuries of both hard and soft tissue in the mouth, jaw, and face. Conditions and treatments include cosmetic and health related surgeries, dentoalveolar and oral surgery, facial trauma, cleft palate and craniofacial anomalies, dental implants, bone grafting, preprosthetic surgery, temporomandibular joint treatment, orthognathic surgery, reconstructive surgery, and adjunctive cosmetic surgery.

In addition to cosmetic procedures and surgeries, the physicians at Midlands Oral Maxillofacial Surgery remove wisdom teeth and perform dental implants as well as biopsies. The appearance of third molars, or wisdom teeth, is one of the foremost reasons to visit the practice. Biopsies are also performed, as well as screenings to check for cancer of the mouth and jaw.

Midlands Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery also utilizes Cone Beam CT 3-D scanner technology. This type of CT scanner uses a special type of technology to generate three dimensional images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths, and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with Cone Beam CT allow for more precise treatment planning, making Midlands Oral on the cutting edge with technology.
