Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
What is Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a branch of medicine that deals with diagnosing and treating diseases, injuries, and deformities of the mouth, teeth, jaws, and face. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons like Dr. Kyle J. Losin are trained in dental and medical techniques and procedures. They are adept at performing complex surgical procedures such as dental implants, wisdom tooth extractions, facial trauma surgery, and corrective jaw surgery.
Dr. Kyle J. Losin works closely with other health care providers, such as orthodontists, oral surgeons, and plastic surgeons, to provide comprehensive patient care. He also has a deep understanding of the way that oral and maxillofacial structures function together. This understanding allows him to provide complete care for patients with oral problems.
What is the Difference Between an Oral Surgeon and a Maxillofacial Surgeon?
Oral surgeons and maxillofacial surgeons are both dental specialists who treat conditions affecting the mouth, teeth, and face. However, there are some key differences between the two. Oral surgeons focus specifically on the mouth, teeth, and jaws, while maxillofacial surgeons also treat neck and head conditions. Maxillofacial surgeons are also trained in facial reconstructive surgery, while oral surgeons are not. As a result of their different areas of focus, oral and maxillofacial surgeons often work together to provide comprehensive care for patients.
