IMPLANTS l The use of implants to replace teeth have a fantastic prognosis longterm as long as they are placed in the correct environment. The cause for the initial tooth loss must be carefully examined and mitigated to ensure the implant doesn’t follow the same fate. Once the risk to further tooth and implant loss is controlled, adequate bone must be present to engage the implant. This sometimes requires a bone graft placed prior to implant surgery being performed. Dr Moore can discuss these options with you further at the time of consultation. . . . . . #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

3D PRINTING l ORTHOGNATHICS l 3D Printing is integral in the modern application of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery. Frequently used for trauma reconstruction, orthognathic planning or even dental implants. CT scan data (DICOM) is used to plan surgery and design patient specific guides and jigs that exactly fit to the patient. They improve efficiency, reduce operating time and ensure precision. During trauma surgeries such as orbital fractures the same technology is used to print the injured orbit allowing reconstruction plates to be adapted before the surgerys even begun. This improves patient outcomes by ensuring accurate reconstruction, reducing return to theatre events and total operating time. Further, the 3D model gives the surgeon detailed insight into the location of important structures such as the optic nerve, fissures and ethmoidal arteries allowing the surgeon to navigate these areas confidently. The images are of a patient undergoing orthognathic surgery where 3D planning and printing were utilised. . . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #dentalimplants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #braces #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #3dplanning #implant #dentalimplant #injectables #3dprinting #ivsedation #sedation #medical #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch

IV SEDATION l Ever wonder why you can't eat or drink before surgery under aesthetic? It is because your normal reflexes are reduced and your muscles are relaxed. This can lead to acid or contents from your stomach being inhaled into the lungs. We request you have nothing to eat from midnight the night before surgery, and nothing to drink for 4 hours before your sedation to ensure a safe surgery. Complete instructions are provided on our website (link in bio) and individualised instructions will be provided during your consultation. . . . . . #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

TMD l Pain, clicking, limitation in opening and locking of the jaw may be signs of Temperomandibular Joint Dysfunction, or TMD. The Temperomandibular Joint is made up of the the condyle (the ball) and the glenoid fossa (the socket). Between these structures lies the articular disc. This disc is an important shock absorber and low friction device that facilitates movement of the condyle during opening. Mouth opening consists of two distinct movements. First, rotation and then translation. Translation is the sliding of the condyle anteriorly. Translation can be obstructed by a displaced disc. This causes popping, reduced mouth opening or a closed lock. There are a range of treatment options depending on the exact cause of the dysfunction. If you are experiencing these signs or symptoms, feel free to contact the surgery directly or DM to arrange a consultation with Dr. Moore. . . . . #OMFS #maxillofacial #maxillofacialsurgery #facialtrauma #headandneck #wisdomtooth #wisdomteeth #thirdmolarsurgery #implants #orthagnathics #orthodontics #oralsurgery #tmj #tmd #tmjsurgery #pathology #oralcancer #implant #injectables #botox #ivsedation #sedation #medical #doctor #medicine #surgery #surgeon #Christchurch #newzealand #arthroscopy

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

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.

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
