A large component of a Maxillofacial Surgeons training is spent within public hospitals managing facial trauma. Common injuries include boken jaws, eye sockets, cheek bones, frontal sinuses and the associated soft tissue injuries. A Maxillofacial surgeon is second to none in managing these injuries.
Having not only completed medical and surgical training, a maxillofacial surgeon has completed dentistry and is uniquely skilled in laboratory techniques to reproduce facial aesthetics and oral function. In the 21st Century these skills extend to the use of computer aided reconstruction, 3D printing and manufacturing custom 3D hardware to obtain the best possible outcomes for our patients.
