What is Maxillofacial Surgery?
Maxillofacila surgery is also called facial surgery, facio maxillary surgery, or simply face mouth and jaw surgery. Facial surgery is an exclusive surgical specialty dealing with several problems of face mouth and jaw.
Fractured facial bones, swelling and infection of face and jaws cosmetic surgeries, undiagnosed facial pain and jaw pains can all be treated in maxillofacial surgery.
Why Maxillofacial Surgery?
Face is a dynamic part of our body. It performs several vital functions like seeing, talking, breathing, chewing etc. The entire harmony of the face and its function depend on the dental occlusion i.e contact between upper and lower teeth. Any procedure of jaw face and mouth should be performed keeping in view the actual position of the teeth. As maxillofacial surgeons we are trained with complete structure and functions of face along with dental occlusion and jaw position.
Many times surgical procedures of face fail due to derangement of occlusion and jaw position during surgery. Our knowledge of dental occlusion will help you recover quickly after any surgery of face, mouth and jawretain function and esthetics.

Facial injuries can be readily identified if there is bleeding from mouth, nose or face. But sometimes the injury may not be obvious immediately. In any accident, be it road traffic accident or simple fall in your house, face is the common area to be injured.
We have four wisdom teeth or third molars. Two in the upper jaw and two in the lower jaw. Wisdom teeth usually start erupting after 18 yrs of age. Since they erupt after completion of jaw growth, they usually don’t have sufficient place to erupt.
At GNATHOS saving and shaping faces is of great reverence. We are here to deliver complete ,advanced care for all problems faced by your face.
