Specialties which are associated with oral maxillofacial surgery.Maxillofacial and oral surgeons are trained in areas of specialty, and they can remain generalists mostly they prefer choosing to specialize in one or more fields. Some of the surgical procedures that an oral maxillofacial surgeon can perform include neck and head cancer, where they remove the tumor and reconstruct the body parts, and surgery of the saliva glands, which provides for minimally invasive techniques to remove the stones which are located in the duct. They also perform orthognathic surgery and treat craniofacial deformities, which gives room to correct the disproportion of the jaw, and facial skin surgery, which includes removing tumors and facial cancers.

Aesthetic jaw surgery is an oral medicine that treats and diagnoses conditions that affect in and around the cervicofacial regions; dentoalveolar surgery is the treatment of the teeth, including dental implants, extracting impacted teeth, and complex tooth extractions—pre-prosthetic surgery, which involves the placement of dentures and other dental prostheses. Surgeries that insert the bone fused with dental implants and the maxillofacial implants are used to reattach the prostheses and make hearing aids.

Some other specialties in oral maxillofacial surgery.

Maxillofacial surgery in some countries is regarded as a medical specialty that needs both dental and medical degrees. But for an oral maxillofacial surgeon not considering the region, they first acquire a degree in dentistry before starting their maxillofacial and oral surgery. The program can take 4-7 years. Some of the other specialties are maxillofacial reformation and regeneration, craniofacial surgery, and cleft surgery.

Cosmetic surgeries are performed on the head and neck regions. The cosmetic surgeries involve brow lifts, rhinoplasty, septoplasty, hair transplantation liposuctions, mesotherapy, chemical peels, oculoplastic. Another specialty is dysgnathia which is a treatment to correct a bite, and surgery, which restores the asymmetry of the face.
