Oral and maxillofacial surgery
Surgeons diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses, fractures, and defects in the head, neck, ears, jaws, and oral and maxillofacial hard and soft tissues. Facial injuries should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible because they can be life-changing or even life-threatening. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons treat people of all ages, from new-borns to the elderly. Cleft lip/palate is a condition in which an infant is born with or develops deformities of the skull or face. The most of their work with young people includes surgery in the wake of an injury or accident. They sometimes treat oral cancer and skin tumours of the face and head in the elderly.
