Why Oral Surgeons are unique in the dental profession
They are the surgical specialists of the dental profession. Their experience in general surgery, medicine, anesthesia and dentistry uniquely qualify them to diagnose, treat and manage conditions, injuries, and aesthetics aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaws and face. Maxillofacial surgeons are initially qualified in dentistry and have undergone further medical training.

News & Events

Stem cells are cells found in most, if not all, multi-cellular organisms. They are characterized by the ability to renew themselves through mitotic cell division and differentiating into a diverse range of specialized cell types.

A research suggests that coating dental implants with a synthetic bone material prior to implantation allows such implant to become incorporated much more successfully into the jaw, leading to smiles all round.

The results of experiments that focused on 'nanostructures'demonstrated enhanced bone response to dental implants as soon as 4 weeks after implant placement.
