What to expect

History

Your maxillofacial surgeon will need background information before deciding on the best treatment for you. He or she will ask about the problem, its progress and complications. They may also ask about other medical problems, previous surgery and your current medications.

Examination

Examination will be focussed on the area of concern. Further testing with X-Rays and CT scan commonly follow so a complete assessment and management plan can be made.
