National Maxillofacial Unit

What we do

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a surgical discipline, which deals with the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of conditions arising on the face, in the jaws, mouth and their environment including the maxilla (upper jaw), mandible (lower jaw), nose, neck and salivary glands.  OMFS is unique in that it requires postgraduate training in both dentistry and medicine.  The aim of the speciality is to provide a comprehensive diagnostic and surgical service, often in a multidisciplinary manner to our medical and dental colleagues for a defined anatomical area – the Head and Neck

The Maxillofacial Laboratory provides maxillofacial / orthodontic technical support for the facial deformity, post-traumatic / burns, post -cancer excision, facial pain and importantly facial prostheses
