Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

What is oral and maxillofacial surgery?

Your oral health has a huge impact on your quality of life. Maintaining your oral health allows you to eat and drink comfortably, speak clearly and smile proudly.

The Main Line Health oral and maxillofacial surgery team at locations throughout the Philadelphia suburbs helps you achieve excellent oral health. Our goal is to help you improve how your jaw, mouth and teeth work and appear, especially if they have been affected by a health condition or injury.

Our surgeons offer treatment for many conditions, including:

Our oral surgeons work closely with periodontists (doctors who specialize in taking care of your gums), orthodontists (doctors who specialize in the alignment of the teeth and jaws) and dentists to provide comprehensive care. 

Main Line Health oral surgeons perform a wide range of procedures from common (such as wisdom teeth removal) to complex (such as reconstructing the jaw after a traumatic injury). Each of our surgeons has years of specialized training and experience offering the latest oral surgery techniques at convenient hours and locations in the Philadelphia region.

For some patients, we offer a special program called single-day dentistry. As part of this program, you will receive treatment from all members of the Main Line Health team necessary in one day. You will be asleep the entire time so that you won't feel pain or discomfort during the procedures. The single-day dentistry program can be very beneficial for people with several conditions impacting their health.
