No one likes being told they need surgery. But you can rest assured that your maxillofacial surgery (sometimes called oral surgery) experience in Guatemala will be a positive one. We are here to assist you in finding the care you need with a qualified dental maxillofacial surgeon at a price that is far more affordable than in the US or Canada.
There are a number of dental procedures that require maxillofacial surgery. Some procedures are simple and others complex. Here are some of the common conditions and procedures performed by dental maxillofacial surgeons:
- Impacted canines or wisdom teeth
- Jaw surgery
- Repair of soft tissue injuries
- Repair of bone injuries
- Repair of injuries to the teeth and surrounding dental structures
- Major and minor bone grafting
- TMJ treatment
- Cleft lip/palate surgery
If you have a condition requiring oral surgery, the quality of care that you’ll receive in Guatemala will be the same as you’d get back home and maybe even better. The clinics are modern and hygienic. Our dentists are experienced and have gone through extensive training. They will be using up-to-date equipment and high-quality materials.
Your dentist will talk to you before your surgery to make sure that you understand why it’s needed, how to prepare for it, what the expected results will be, and to answer any questions you may have.
In most cases, patients coming out of dental surgery can walk on their own and continue with life pretty much as usual. Some may need to rest for a day or two and perhaps to take painkillers and antibiotics for a few days. In some cases, patients may also have to change their diet and follow a few restrictions, such as to stop smoking or not doing exercise.
