Maxillofacial surgery is one of the first specializations to emerge from dentistry. This surgery aims to treat injuries, diseases, abnormalities and disorders of the mouth (maxillo) and face (facial). The regions of the head and neck are closely linked to certain organ systems such as the brain, eyes, ears etc. maxillofacial management often requires interdisciplinary collaboration in the diagnosis and treatment of pathologies.
