A maxillofacial surgeon has more powers than a dentist. After completing studies dentistry continues to form so he could solve:
Problems facial trauma, cleft lip and palate.
Oral, craniofacial and neck oncology.
Salivary gland pathology (benign and malignant tumors).
Cervicofacial infectious diseases (boils, facial abscesses).
Pathologies of the oral mucosa and temperomandibular joint.
In short, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon treats injuries and deformities, extracts teeth and performs surgery on the mouth, jaws and face.
