A specialist maxillofacial surgeon is dually qualified in medicine & dentistry, and has completed further training & specialisation in jaw & facial surgery.
This positions them as the most qualified and experienced clinicians to perform surgery involving the mouth, jaws and face.
Profilo is home to an oral and maxillofacial specialist, who has comprehensive training and a wealth of experience in treating a vast array of complex conditions.
Specialist oral & maxillofacial care
Commonly known procedures such as placement of dental implants and the surgical treatment of wisdom teeth, are best performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (MaxFax).
Consideration is taken not just of the teeth, but of the surrounding structures of the gums, jaws and face. A MaxFax will manage you medically as well as dentally.
Being a medical practitioner enables a MaxFax to perform a select range of procedures under Medicare subsidy, something which a general dental practitioner is unable to do.
This means specialist level management, with treatment accessible and affordable.
Treatment can be done both here in our Newcastle rooms, or in private hospital under general anaesthetic.
