What is oral and maxillofacial surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is an internationally-recognized dental specialty focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, injuries and abnormalities of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws. The surgical procedures oral and maxillofacial surgeons perform include:
- wisdom teeth removal
- correction of jaw abnormalities
- the placement of dental implants
- treatment of jaw cysts and tumors
- bone grafts
- treatment of facial fractures and deformities
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is one of the most highly-trained medical professionals. These doctors first obtain a university degree in dental medicine before completing specialized training in oral and maxillofacial surgery. This training typically consists of 5-7 years of hospital internships, residencies and optional specializations in plastic surgery, general surgery, orthopedics, or neurosurgery for example. An oral maxillofacial surgeon collaborates with Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctors, dentists, orthodontists or pediatricians.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery services at your Turó Park Dental and Medical Center
The English-speaking specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery at our conveniently-located Barcelona clinic perform the following procedures:
Wisdom teeth extraction
Most people have four wisdom teeth (two in their upper jaw and two in the lower jaw), but some may have more or less, or even none at all. Wisdom teeth grow in somewhere between ages 17 and 25 years old.
Wisdom teeth need to be removed by an oral maxillofacial surgeon when lack of space or poor positioning pushes other teeth in your mouth out of a healthy alignment. Sometimes wisdom teeth do not fully grow out of the gums or can remain completely embedded in the jaw bone (impaction). This can cause later dental and oral health problems such as:
- Damage to other teeth
- Infections, cavities, and gum disease
We recommend regular dental visits to monitor the status of your wisdom teeth. If teeth are extracted earlier on, some of these problems can be avoided. Also, doing the surgery before the wisdom teeth roots have completely formed reduces some of the risks of surgical complications, reduces the pain and length of recovery.
Our English-speaking Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon prefoms your widsom-teeth extraction right in the convenience of our comfortable Barcelona clinic, under local anesthesia, with or without intravenous conscious sedation (medication to control anxiety). We use the latest techniques and medications to ensure you experience the least amount of pain and the fastest recovery possible.
Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces tooth roots with metal, screwlike posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function much like real ones. Dental implants reduce the risks of cavities and damage to adjacent teeth. With dental implants you can avoid dentures and improve appearance, ability to chew effectively and to speak clearly. There are several solutions to replace a missing tooth, but implant placement is by far the most innovative and effective technique. Performing this operation in your Turó Park clinic in Barcelona is choosing a treatment that is well done, comfortable, and more economical than in France.

Sinus Lift Surgery
The sinus lift or augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases, by bone grafting, the thickness of the maxillary bone (the bone of the upper jaw) adjacent to the premolar and molar teeth. Your Turo Park dentist may advise this procedure to help build a stronger foundation (like a building foundation) for a dental implant or to improve your jaw strength and ability to chew.
Piezosurgery is a new surgical technique that uses ultrasound to cut through bone. This precise surgery is minimally invasive, which means that it causes very little damage to soft tissues surrounding the bone surgery site (mucosa, vessels, nerves, membranes). Turo Park’s Oral Maxilofacial surgeon uses this revolutionary surgical technique in the placement of dental implants, offering your the most successful surgical procedure with the lowest risk of complications, pain, or difficulties recovering.
Orthognathic surgery is an operation which makes the bones of the upper jaw and jaw "straight" in order to recreate the normal positioning of your teeth. This procedure can help improve a person’s appearance in addition to helping them chew better, breathe more easily and speak more clearly.
