How is a oral maxillofacial surgeon different from a general surgeon?
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the surgical specialty that includes the diagnosis, surgical and related treatments of a wide spectrum of diseases, injuries, defects and aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaws and face. It is an internationally recognized surgical specialty.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMFS) are trained to treat and care for patients who experience such conditions as problem wisdom teeth, facial pain, and misaligned jaws. They treat accident victims suffering facial injuries, offer reconstructive and dental implant surgery, and care for patients with tumors, cysts, and developmental craniofacial abnormalities of the jaws/ face and functional and aesthetic conditions of the maxillofacial areas. In addition, they are highly trained in the delivery of IV anesthesia.
OMFS receive a minimum of 4 years of specialty training that includes rotations in general surgery, plastic surgery and medicine.
Does OHIP pay for my procedure?
OHIP does not pay for in-office procedures.
How do I find out if my insurance pays for my procedure?
Our staff can provide a predetermination for your procedure and electronically submit to your insurance company to help you determine how much insurance coverage you have.
Will my surgery be done in the hospital or in the office?
Virtually all surgical procedures are done in the office with the exception of orthognathic surgery which involves surgical repositioning of the upper and lower jaws.
Do I have to be referred by a dentist or can I make an appointment directly with your office?
You do not have to be referred by your dentist. We will be happy to schedule a consultation appointment to discuss your concern.
