Maxillofacial & Oral Surgery and Orthodontic Services

The Maxillofacial Surgery and Orthodontic Department  is based in a dedicated purpose built unit  at the Arrowe Park Hospital site.

Maxillofacial Surgery is the surgical specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the mouth, jaws, face and neck. This includes:

  • orthognathic surgery (to correct conditions of the jaw and face) / facial deformity
  • surgical dentistry (impacted teeth, dental cysts)
  • injuries to the face
  • salivary gland problems
  • cancers of the head and neck 
  • facial pain.

Outpatient clinics are held daily at Arrowe Park Hospital and all surgery is undertaken in the main theatre suite and dedicated paediatric theatres housed in our Women and Children’s Hospital.

Orthodontics is a type of dentistry that aims to improve the appearance, position and function of crooked or abnormally arranged teeth.

The first stage of treatment is to assess the state of your teeth and their likely development. This usually involves taking X-rays, making plaster models and taking photographs of your teeth. This will give the orthodontist an idea of the treatment needed and the likely results.

The Orthodontic team is led by a consultant and supported doctors in training.

Referrals to the unit are by General Dental Practitioners, other specialities and the Emergency Department.
