The specialist

The specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery has the expertise to identify, diagnose and treat multiple pathologies of the mouth, jaw and face.

  • He or she can direct a medical or radiological investigation by more in-depth examinations.
  • The surgeon can perform a biopsie of suspicious lesions and specimens are sent to hospital or oral pathologist for analysis. This analysis will determine the final treatment of the pathology.

Types of anesthesia

Treatments can be done under local anesthesia, sedation or general anesthesia depending on the extent of the lesion and the patient’s preference.
