What is oral & maxillofacial surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is an internationally recognized specialty which focuses on diagnosis and management of conditions, diseases, and deformities involving the face, jaws, and mouth.

What is an oral & maxillofacial surgeon?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are regarded as experts in surgery involving the face, mouth, neck, and jaws. Our Lake Nona oral surgeons perform a wide range of operations including extraction of diseased and impacted teeth, placement of dental implants, bone grafting, corrective jaw surgery, removal of cysts and tumors, TMJ surgery, cleft lip and palate surgery, and facial reconstructive surgery following traumatic injuries.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are also trained to operate on other parts of the body in order to harvest tissues such as skin, muscle, fat, and bone that may be transplanted to the head/neck tissues during reconstructive surgeries. Another unique aspect of these specialty surgeons is that they are also extensively well-trained in anesthesia, enabling them to offer office-based IV sedation and general anesthesia for many patients. Our specialties and service areas include Lake Nona wisdom teeth removal and Lake Nona dental implants.
