Anyone with certain symptoms or problems in the mouth, neck or face can be referred by a GP or dentist for examination and treatment at the stomatology department, also known as the Oral and maxillofacial surgery department or OMS in short.
In the stomatology department, you can find treatment for disorders of the head and neck area.
This can range from difficult tooth extractions and the removal of wisdom teeth, the removal of cysts and the treatment of infectious diseases to the placement of one or more dental implants. Many surgical procedures that are part of orthodontic treatment are also possible, such as extracting enclosed teeth, placing bone anchors or major jaw surgery (jaw osteotomy).
In addition, the stomatology department also offers solutions for disorders of the jaw joint, for benign and malignant lesions of the skin and mucous membranes, for problems with the salivary glands, for snoring and OSAS (obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome) as well as for fractures of the face.
Preservation and restoration of both function and aesthetics always go hand in hand.
Finally, the stomatology department also provides patients with dental care under anaesthetic or sedation if treatment under local anaesthesia is not possible. This care is provided by an experienced anaesthetist.
