"I have never regretted trusting a doctor more. To start, he gave me terrible advice pre-surgery that resulted in a hormone imbalance so intense I had cystic acne all over my face for months. I still have some of the scars 2 years later. Second, although he advised me not to worry, that this surgery would not change my face in any drastic way and that any changes I did see would be minimal and positive, the reality is that having surgery with him had significant repercussions. The most serious among them is that part of my nose collapsed, but I've had issues with the entire lower half of my face. The worst part is that when I told him something wasn't right, he tried to convince me that everything was normal. He did try to offer me some minimal help, but nothing so significant as to show he was all that invested in making things alright--he's an agreeable person, but I really felt like underneath that he was more interested in making sure I didn't sue. He tried to send me off to some completely unqualified friend of his to fix my nose, which I turned down. He did refund me part of the cost of having surgery with him, but not all. It all felt very half-hearted. Meanwhile, fixing this is costing me tens of thousands of dollars I really can't afford to spend. Honestly, I should have sued."

What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the specialty providing surgical care for the mouth and jaw. It is unusual in that it is a hybrid specialty combining the professional education of both dentists and medical doctors. The path to becoming an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, or simply ‘oral surgeon,’ begins with graduating from dental school. The dentist then attends a surgical residency in a hospital, learning general surgical techniques alongside other physicians.

While many routine oral issues can be treated by a dentist, there are some that require specialized surgical care. Some of the procedures performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons include:
  • Removing wisdom teeth
  • Dental implants
  • Corrective surgery for facial deformities
  • Repair of facial trauma
  • Cleft lip or cleft palate surgery
  • TMJ surgery
  • Orthognathic surgery (jaw alignment)
  • Sleep apnea surgery

Some of these procedures are also performed by otolaryngologists or ENTs. There is quite a bit of overlap between the two specialties, and in many cases both will be qualified to perform a specific surgery. In general, oral surgeons are more likely to perform surgeries related to the mouth and jaw, such as wisdom tooth removal or TMJ surgery; whereas ENTs are more likely to handle cancers. However, areas of specialization are truly dependent on the individual physician.

One unusually convenient fact about oral and maxillofacial surgeons is that they are highly trained in the use of sedation and anesthesia, more so than any other doctors except anesthesiologists. This means that they are able to perform surgeries such as the removal of wisdom teeth on an outpatient basis in their office, without the need for an additional anesthesiologist on staff.

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons combine surgical expertise with their knowledge of dentistry to provide serious care for the structures of the jaw and face.
