What is Oral and Maxillofacial surgery?

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialty concerned with diagnosing and treating diseases, injuries, defects and aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaws, face, head and neck. They often work alongside other specialists including dentists, orthodontists, prosthodontists, radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, ENT surgeons, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons and other allied health professionals.

Mr Peter Allan's main interests are removal of wisdom teeth and other difficult teeth, exposure of impacted teeth, dental implants, bone grafts and sinus lifts for implants, and orthognathic surgery.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons undertake rigorous training and examinations over many years to become fully qualified. For more information, please see Peter Allan’s biography.
