Your care

The Procedure

Maxillofacial surgery is a stream that consists of comprehensive treatments, each having to deal with a different element of the face, demanding a set of procedures that are unique to the situation. The treatment procedures are streamlined through a collaborative effort of orthodontists, maxillofacial and cosmetic surgeons, oncologists and cosmetic dentists working together on techniques adding their expertise to the process.

Every treatment procedure is preceded by

  • A detailed consultation with review of the medical history
  • X-rays, CT scans and necessary digital imaging, as per the requirement
  • A unique treatment plan
  • Pre-operative protocols, structured to reduce complications

Jaw asymmetry

Jaw asymmetry is typically caused due to

  • misaligned jaws
  • malpositioned teeth
  • disproportionate jaw development
  • congenital malformations
  • intra-uterine trauma
  • cysts and tumours

A simple check to identify if you have disproportionate jaws would be to check the ratios of your face with respect to the upper part (forehead), middle part (nose) and the lower part (lips and chin). Your facial symmetry can also be checked by examining the left and right side of your face with the reference line being drawn down the center of the face. Orthognathic or jaw surgery involves surgical correction of these deformities, thereby adjusting and aligning the bite to make the jaws aesthetically perfect.

Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ)

Temporomandibular joint disorders are a series of complex disorders occurring at the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull. These are caused by problems and disruption related to the muscle, soft tissue and bone, affecting overall functionality. Severe TMJ disorders increase oro-facial dysfunction and leads to pain and discomfort. Concerns with chewing, clenching of teeth and locking of the jaw joint are some of the discomforts associated. While bite guards and physiotherapy may relieve concerns, in severe cases it requires surgical correction in the joint or a complete joint replacement.

Pediatric maxillofacial surgery

The anatomy of a child’s facial skeleton differs from the adult anatomy and definitive changes occur as the child grows and develops. Pediatric maxillofacial surgery specially attempts to treat birth deformity, trauma, pathology and oral air-way disruptions in children with a higher understanding of the impact of the disease or injury on the growing facial anatomy. We derive the best of methods to treat the fragile conditions of children without hampering their future growth.

Facial and Cranio-maxillofacial trauma

We provide services to address and correct different degrees of trauma experienced through accidents and injuries. Facial and Cranio-maxillofacial trauma includes injuries involving the craniofacial region and these can range from being mild injuries to severe life-threatening injuries that require specialized intervention. These reconstructive surgeries include treating maxillofacial fractures, soft tissue injuries of the face, nerve injuries and also complex trauma surgeries to surgically correct improperly treated or untreated post-traumatic defects

Microvascular reconstructive surgery

Reconstructive surgeries are offered for surgically correcting deformities caused by tumors and cancer. We aim to provide you with a natural looking face and neck post the abnormal growth and the cancer cells have been treated or removed. Microvascular surgery is a tissue transfer technique that’s followed by a skin graft from a donor site of the patient’s body, to repair the space left because of the surgical defect. This is performed through a free flap tissue transfer connecting the blood vessels of the trauma part with the ones of the new tissues to ultimately provide a fuller, natural shape and an excellent cosmetic result.

Maxillofacial surgeries for congenital anomalies

Our services under maxillofacial surgeries also include correcting birth defects and malformations of the oral and maxillofacial region. Our team is specialized in treating complex congenital syndromes affecting the head and neck region including clefts, hemifacial microsomia and other severe deformities that may require emergency attention and interventions, especially in the case of a new born.

More on Maxillofacial Surgery

Your upper and lower jaw bones along with your teeth provide support to the face, giving it shape and contours that define beauty. Tooth loss, if left untreated, results in gaps that collapse the arch, leading to the deterioration of the supporting bone, further impacting your facial features and the shape of your face. Dental implants directly supported by the bone sustain this gap and act as the root of the tooth, in place of the missed tooth, thus preventing arch collapse and bone resorption.

In the course of tooth eruption and jaw bone growth the teeth may eventually be positioned in an abnormal or an atypical alignment. Often it is this atypical alignment that makes a tooth susceptible to damage by caries or ‘trauma from occlusion’ which eventually leads to it needing to be extracted. These teeth often need surgical extraction, where a surgical procedure maybe needed to be carried on the bone and gums for extraction. A wide range of variables come into play depending on the complexity and a dentist may not be able to handle the same. A maxillofacial surgeon comes with specialized expertise in pain management and surgical skills, well suited for this procedure.

There can be many factors that may lead to a TMJ disorder and cannot be pointed to a single one. Some of the common causes are an abnormal bite caused due to tooth loss often leading to asymmetric chewing, poor neck and face posture, jaw injuries, bruxism or jaw clenching especially at night, joint erosion and genetic reasons. In periods of stress, your TMJ disorders may be exacerbated with heightened teeth grinding and clenching resulting in increased levels of pain.

If you are physically healthy and wish to undergo a surgery to balance your facial proportion, we are here to serve you. Every surgery poses some risks which may include infection, bleeding, numbness, nerve damage, additional surgery in case of complications; which differ from case to case. However, we at Clinic GP have exceptional surgeons who follow strict protocols and utilise time-tested procedures with an excellent track record of success, thus keeping risks at a minimum. We have detailed discussions with the patient regarding the treatment plan and outcomes and set realistic goals while keeping the in the loop at every stage of the treatment. Our vast experience ensures we take steps to reduce risks and if any complications do arise our team is extremely trained in picking it early and managing it effectively.

Cleft lip is a birth defect that affects a child’s ability to feed, breathe and speak normally and also restricts the child from having a natural full smile. Reconstructive cleft lip surgery is usually performed in children within 6 months of birth and is a safe procedure. This would repair the functionality of the lip defect. If the child requires a cleft palate surgery this is also planned around the time the child begins the process of learning to talk and along with regular speech therapy, we ensure the child is normally assimilated into society, as a beautiful person.

Depending on the severity of the deformity, our pediatric surgeon would guide you through the treatment and procedure undertaken.
