WISDOM TEETH l Impaction of a tooth describes when a tooth doesn't fully erupt through the gums into a functional position to bite (occlusion). Wisdom teeth have the highest incidence of impaction in the mouth. The tooth may be facing forward (mesio-angular), backwards (disto-angular) or be vertically impacted. Regardless of the angle, impacted teeth can lead to significant infection (pericoronitis) and damage to adjacent teeth, resulting in their loss. In close proximity to the wisdom teeth, lie two nerves. The first gives feeling to the lip and the chin, the second both taste and feeling to the tongue. These can be damaged during surgery, resulting in numbness or chronic pain if removed improperly. For this reason, the safest way to achieve their removal is with an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon who has undergone fellowship training with the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. To ensure your being treated by the best check for FRACDS (OMS) in your surgeons credentials. No other qualification ensures this specialist level of care. @anzoams @racdseducation . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #dentalimplant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

INJECTABLES l TMD l Injectables have gained a lot of popularity in the facial cosmetic discipline. They also have a significant place in medical treatment of an array of health concerns. Depending on your individual requirements, Botox may be used to relax the muscles that make up the face, to reduce force of muscular contraction, reduce tension in the face and temple, with a goal to alleviate your pain. It may be used individually, or in conjunction with other treatments. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #dentalimplant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

IMPLANTS l HYGEINE l At home and professional hygiene treatments are essential for the ongoing health of your mouth and systemic health. The health of the supporting structures of the teeth, including the bone, gums and periodontal ligament, are essential in maintaining your natural teeth and implants for the long term. Mr. Moore encourages regular review with your general dentist, hygienist or periodontist to maintain the health of your implants. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #dentalimplant #periodontist #gigivitis #ivsedation #sedation #medical #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #hygiene #hygienist #gums #teeth #floss #Christchurch

PATHOLOGY l The process of diagnosing an oral lesion requires consultation, biopsy and assessment of the biopsy by a pathologist. The biopsy itself may involve removing a small part of, or the lesion entirely. This is based on numerous factors, including the differential diagnosis and the size of the lesion. Once the results come back from the pathologist, any treatment necessary will be discussed with you. Sometimes, only regular review or no treatment at all is necessary. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #oralpathology #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #dentalimplant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

ORTHOGNATHICS l Sometimes moving teeth, or othodontics, is not enough to achieve a perfect bite or facial symmetry. In conjunction with orthodontics, Orthognathic surgery may be required. Orthognathic surgery involves the moving of one or both jaws. The aim is to create a more functional bite, a more symmetrical skeletal profile or an aesthetic change. Liam will work closely with your orthodonists from the initial treatment planning phase until surgery to ensure a stress-free treatment schedule, a seamless handover between clinicians and the optimum results inline with you and your orthodonists goals. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #pathology #oralcancer #implant #dentalimplant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

IV SEDATION l Intravenous Sedation is also known as conscious sedation or twilight sedation. The medication used significantly reduces anxiety, provides pain relief and can cause some memory loss. It is used in conjunction with local anaesthetic to provide comfort during treatment and more comfortable recovery. The team present at your surgery consists of Mr. Moore, registered nurses and a specialist sedationist, to keep you safe and comfortable during your procedure. IV Sedation is appropriate for some surgeries. Mr. Moore can also offer General Anaesthetic serviced at St. George's Hospital. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #dentalimplant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

IMPLANTS l Restoration of the implant, whether of a single tooth or multiple teeth, can be done after the implant has osseointegrated with the surrounding bone. This takes approximately 4 months from when the implant is placed. We work closely with your referring general dentist to ensure a seamless handover, once the implant has been deemed ready for loading. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #dentalimplant #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

PATHOLOGY l Lump, bump, white spot, red spot or ulcer that wont go away? Or something completely different you just aren't sure about? Although usually benign, all these things could be a sign of oral cancer. The sooner a lesion is treated, the better the prognosis. A simple biopsy can be completed under local anesthetic or IV sedation. Any treatment, if necessary, can commence as soon as possible. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #health #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

IMPLANTS l Dental implants can be used to replace single teeth, multiple teeth and entire arches. They work by directly engaging the residual bone, transmitting forces in a similar fashion to natural teeth improving patient function and comfort. Once osseo-integration is achieved, the long-term prognosis for dental implants is excellent. Please contact us today to discuss if dental implants are an appropriate option for you. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #health #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

TMD l Temperomadibular Joint Dysfunction can be debilitating. Pain or abnormal function of the joint can be due to a change in the anatomy that makes up the joint. Liam works with a multi-discipline team to diagnose and treatment plan your case with consultation from Oral medicine specialist, Dr. Anita Nolan and Maxillofacial consultant, Mr Christopher Lim. Treatment options can range from conservative to surgical. An occlusal splint (pictured), may be all that is required to alleviate discomfort. Many of Liams patients have already tried these non invasive therapies and are candidates for arthroscopic surgery of the joint. Liam is one of only a few surgeons in the country to routinely perform this type of surgery regularly. As with any surgical consultation all appropriate options will be discussed with you after a detailed consultation and examination with Liam. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #health #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

WISDOM TEETH l Wisdom teeth are one of the most common reasons for referral to Liam. There is often not enough space for them, or they have a unique angle, which leads to impaction, infection and pain. Liam uses 3D imaging to identify critical anatomy, like the inferior alveolar nerve and lingual nerves, and mitigate post-operative complications. Surgical removal can be conducted under local anesthetic, IV sedation or general anesthetic.
