Correction of Dentofacial (Bite) Deformities and Birth Defects -The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Unit, usually in conjunction with an Orthodontist, surgically reconstructs and realigns the upper and lower jaws into proper dental and facial relationships to provide improved biting function and facial appearance. Facial deformities by birth are also corrected here surgically.

Dental Implants- The dental implant is done in collaboration with Restorative Dentists. The Unit also reconstructs bone for implant and modify gingival (gum) tissue surrounding implants when necessary, to make the teeth placed on implants look even more natural.
