Maxillofacial Surgeons

Have you been told that you need to see an oral or maxillofacial surgeon for a dental problem you are dealing with? Patients from the US and Canada often seek help in Guatemala because they are facing dental issues that may require surgery. They often seek treatment from one of our highly trained maxillofacial surgeons.

Maxillofacial surgeons are dentists who specialize in surgery of the mouth, jaw, nose and other parts of the face. In the United States, this is a dental specialty, but in a few other countries, like the UK, it is a medical and a dental specialty, requiring a degree in both medicine and dentistry. While maxillofacial surgeons perform a wide range of procedures, we are referring here only to dental maxillofacial surgeons.

Despite the name, surgery in the mouth is not necessarily a heavily invasive procedure. For example, maxillofacial surgeons are often consulted just to know the appropriate dosage of anesthetics for a specific patient who is getting a common procedure, such as a root canal. Another common procedure that maxillofacial surgeons often perform are extractions of teeth that are too damaged to be saved.

A maxillofacial surgeon is also skilled at inserting dental implants, since this procedure requires drilling of the jawbone and local anesthetics. They also perform procedures such as All-on-4s which require the insertion of four dental implants during the same surgery.

Finally, a maxillofacial surgeon is called in cases where extreme trauma or disease has greatly damaged the oral cavity of a patient.
