Oral And Jaw Surgery in Turkey - Estetik Dental Group


Individuals of all ages resort to oral and jaw surgery in order to diagnose and treat diseases, injuries, and disorders of the hard and soft tissues in the mouth, teeth, and jaw.

In addition to healthy individuals, individuals with special care needs, chronic systemic diseases, and individuals with physical and/or mental disabilities benefit from the examination, treatment, and follow-up services of the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery department.

What is Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery?

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a specialty after graduation from dentistry, and it is a branch of science that treats diseases, traumas, and deformities that are aesthetically and functionally related to the head, face, mouth, teeth, gums, and neck.

The following processes are included in the scope of the study;

  • Normal and surgical extractions of teeth,
  • Embedded tooth extractions,
  • Dental and zygomatic implant applications,
  • Diagnosis and treatment of jaw cysts and tumors,
  • Preprosthetic surgery operations,
  • Sinus floor elevation procedures,
  • Bone augmentations,
  • Diagnosis, treatment, and long-term follow-up of traumatic dental and supporting tissue injuries,
  • Conservative and surgical treatments of jaw fractures,
  • Orthognathic surgical operations,
  • Treatment of jaw joint diseases.

In other words, oral and maxillofacial surgery, which is the specialty of dentistry, aims to increase the quality of life of patients as much as possible by providing the aesthetic and functional integrity of soft and hard tissue repairs of diseases, injuries, and defects related to the oral and maxillofacial region.

In the maxillofacial surgery technique, determining the trauma area is useful in determining whether the patient is getting enough oxygen and detecting cyanosis.

Examination of the head and neck:

It is possible to experience a simple laceration, abrasion, or underlying penetrating cranial injury if present. It should be requested on the cervical X-ray

Eye examination:

While periorbital ecchymosis appears due to regional traumas, they should also suggest anterior fossa trauma. Rhinorrhea indicates fractures of the ethmoid, presence of pupillary edema, and increased intracranial pressure.

Ear damage:

The presence of blood and cerebrospinal fluid from the ear suggests a fracture of the skull base.

Nose problems:

If cerebrospinal fluid flows, it should suggest ethmoid fractures. Different pupil levels suggest orbital or zygoma fractures.

Reasons For Jaw Surgery

According to experts, a patient may need maxillofacial surgery if they have a significantly retracted upper jaw, a severe crossbite or open bite, a protruding jaw, or a regression in the lower jaw. Additionally, they add that some adult patients can begin orthodontic treatment because the jaw has stopped growing and surgery is required to achieve the ideal treatment outcome.

If this is the case, they will decide which corrective maxillofacial procedure is necessary in collaboration with your dentist and oral maxillofacial surgeon. In order to ensure that the teeth are in the proper positions after surgery, treatment typically includes orthodontics.


Jaw surgery is done for a variety of reasons, including;

  • Problems biting and chewing
  • Excessive wear and breakage of teeth
  • Facial imbalances
  • Restoration of symmetry on the face and facial features
  • Improving the appearance of the gum smile where the lips do not close
  • Improving the appearance of toothless smiles where the lips cover all teeth
  • Reduced risk of TMJ disorder and other jaw problems
  • Correction of facial injuries, defects, and other abnormalities
  • Relief from sleep apnea
  • Correcting jaws that aren’t aligned properly is one of the most common reasons for jaw surgery, experts say.

What Can I Expect Post Surgery?

Your medical team will take you to a recovery room following maxillofacial surgery so you can awaken from the anesthesia. As the medication wears off, you might experience some discomfort or pain.

Additionally, you’ll likely encounter:

  • Bleeding
  • Bruising
  • Limited jaw and tooth use
  • Swelling

Your surgical team will go over the details of the procedure with you, including how it went, when you can go home, and how to take care of yourself while you recover. You should have a driver take you home if you receive anesthesia.

Depending on the procedure you have after maxillofacial surgery, your recovery will vary. For at least a few days, you’ll probably feel some pain, sensitivity, swelling, and bleeding. To keep you comfortable, your doctor may advise taking painkillers. If you had stitches, they will either fall out or be taken out after about a week. Some foods and activities may need to be avoided for a few days or even a few weeks. You will receive detailed instructions from your healthcare provider, which may include:

  • Use ice packs to reduce swelling.
  • Steer clear of foods that are hard, chewy, or crinkly.
  • Avoid alcohol and tobacco products.
  • For a few days, avoid exercising because it can worsen bleeding and swelling.
  • Take a nap to avoid complications.
  • To kill oral bacteria, rinse your mouth instead of brushing your teeth.

Seek medical help if you exhibit any symptoms of infection or other complications following maxillofacial surgery:

  • chills or a fever.
  • abnormal pain or swelling that doesn’t subside over time
  • a persistently metallic, salty, or bad taste in the mouth.
  • excessive blood or pus.

How Long Should You Stay in Turkey For Jaw Surgery?

Several “Corrective Jaw Surgery Techniques” are available.

Three procedures are frequently used in orthognathic surgery.

Lefort I surgery is used for disorders of the upper jaw, Sagittal Split surgery is used for disorders of the lower jaw, and genioplasty surgery is used for disorders of the jaw. Each of these procedures, which all require general anesthesia and typically last 1-2 hours, is carried out. A hospital stay of 1-2 days is sufficient. Usually, recovery takes one to three weeks.
