Treatment for complex mouth, face, jaw and neck problems
Whether you need surgery to treat a mouth ulcer, to correct poor alignment of your upper jaw and teeth or for a complex dental extraction, the Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons at The Meriden have the expertise to help.
Your consultant works closely with specialists in other fields when required, including plastic surgeons, dermatologists, ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) surgeons, orthodontists and speech therapists, to ensure you receive the treatment you need.
When you visit us at The Meriden Hospital, you’ll benefit from treatment tailored to your specific requirements, access to state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatment from an experienced Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons at The Meriden Hospital can help you with:
Most people will be referred to our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons by their GP, dentist or another maxillofacial specialist from outside the region or a consultant in another speciality.
They will also carry out a physical examination of the affected area(s).
Most people who visit us will have already had dental X-rays at their dentist, and these will normally be available for your consultant to review at this time.
Due to the complexity of many oral and maxillofacial problems, a variety of investigations may be required. These could include X-ray, CT, a biopsy or a TMJ arthroscopy (a form of keyhole surgery). These can all be arranged for you by your consultant if required.
Your medical history, the results of your physical examination and of any tests done will all be used to make a diagnosis. Your consultant may discuss treatment options within a multidisciplinary team, with specialists like orthodontists or ENT surgeons.
Every aspect of your care, from initial assessment and diagnosis through to treatment and aftercare, each step of your care will be discussed with you in advance so that you know what to expect. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be happy to talk about these with you.
