If you have a condition affecting your mouth, jaw, neck, cheekbones, forehead or face you will be seen by a member of our specialist oral and maxillofacial surgery team.
You may also be referred to us if via our Emergency Department (A&E) if you have a facial injury, and require further treatment or reconstructive surgery.
You will be referred to one of our specialist clinics if you:
- have a cancer affecting your mouth, head or neck
- were born with missing teeth or a jaw and face abnormality
- require surgery to correct any abnormality to your mouth and face.
After being seen by the maxillo facial department at the RVI, I was fortunate enough to receive an operation the following day due to a cancellation. The care that I received from both the staff in the maxillo facial department and the staff in Ward 20 was absolutely fantastic and I can’t thank them enough.
Our oral and maxillofacial experts work closely with colleagues in many other specialties such as dental, ENT, radiology and plastic surgery dependent upon the treatment you need.
