Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Dubai Image
Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMS) in Dubai is a specialty of dentistry and medicine which deals with the diagnosis, surgical treatment and management of diseases of the face and jaws. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained to treat trauma, congenital and attained deficiencies and disorders, facial infections, cancers of the head and neck areas, as well as to execute extractions, placements of dental implants and dental anesthesia and sedation. 

The operations performed by the oral and maxillofacial surgeons are as follows:

Cleft lip and cleft palate 

The surgeon will close the missing space between the mouth and the nose, rejoin the muscles and contour the mouth. For some patients, the surgeon could utilize a bone from the hip area to close the gap from the nose to the gum tissue in cleft hard palate.

Cosmetic facial surgery

Our physicians provide a wide range of facial cosmetic procedures which can correct physical imperfections that are caused by birth defects, facial trauma, diseases or aging.

Dental implants

Such implants are designed to confer a foundation for replacement teeth that look and function alike natural teeth. These are small titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone where the natural teeth are lacking. The bone fuses with the titanium, forming a solid foundation for artificial teeth. Additionally, dental implants can assist in maintaining the facial structure, avoiding the bone corrosion that happens when teeth are missing.

Facial trauma

These are traumas to the face or the mouth. Such injuries may include:

o    facial lacerations;
o    intra oral lacerations;
o    fractured facial bones;
o    fractured jaws.

The science and art of treating such injuries demand special training implicating thorough experience and comprehensiveness of how the OMS treatment in Dubai can impact the patient’s function and look for the long-term.

Jaw and improper bite

An oral and maxillofacial operation in Dubai is performed under general anesthesia to fix major and minor flaws, like receding or protruding jaw that can distress the patient’s appearance and a good function of the jaw. The physician will reposition the bones in the superior jaw, lower jaw or chin and add, extract or redesign the bones. Wires, plates, rubber bands and screws will keep the jaw in its new place.

Joint Disorders

Temporomandibular joint disorders (disorders which affect the joint between the temporal bone and the mandible) affect 20% to 30% of the population. The surgeon might perform an arthroscopy (use of a camera and lighted instrument to view inside the broken joint by making a little incision) or undertake a direct surgical operation to fix the damaged tissue.

Obstructive sleep apnea

Patients who are not able to utilize CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) can go through jaw advancement surgery which enlarges the airway and cure their apnea. It has been demonstrated that such a surgery decreases snoring for 83% of cases and eliminates the need for CPAP utilization for 96% of patients.

Pathology and reconstruction

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have thorough training which includes a wide range of disease processes which impact the oral cavity and the structures around it, such as:

o    soft tissue abnormalities;
o    soft tissue tumors;
o    bone cysts;
o    bone tumors;
o    skin cancers;
o    oral cancer;
o    other head and neck malignancies.

Reconstructive care can also be provided, including restoration of form and function. Utilizing different methods – which can range from simple closure to complicated tissue transfers – the jaws and facial anatomy can be reconstructed with a cosmetic, natural look and deliver a correct functioning bite.

Surgery of the oral cavity and wisdom teeth

Such surgeries include the removal of teeth and treatments which involve the bone of the jaws where the teeth are placed. Such treatments can be offered with or without sedation, or with a general anesthetic.


The physician will thoroughly consider your anesthetic management before the OMS in Dubai, and will evaluate the risks and benefits of each method. Be assured, the objective is that the patient has a safe and comfy experience.
