Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons spend an additional 4-6 years of training in a hospital setting after dental school to become proficient in surgical procedures related to the jaws and mouth. Their area of expertise includes procedures like impacted/complicated tooth removal, teeth exposures for orthodontics, TMJ disorders, obstructive sleep apnea, and sampling or removing disease in the mouth/jaw, dental implants and all related bone grafting for dental implants. In addition, oral and maxillofacial surgeons have special training to provide the full range of sedation and anesthesia in an office setting.
The team at Toronto East Maxillofacial Surgery includes registered nurses who are trained in CPR and Advanced Cardiac Life Support. They also have years of experience assisting patients under IV sedation and monitoring them in recovery. Our team also includes certified dental assistant receptionists who are here to make your experience warm and welcoming.
