Maxillofacial Pathology, Microbiology & Surgery

Maxillofacial pathology is a combination of dentistry and pathology that focuses on the diagnosis, nature, and treatment of disorders that affect the maxillofacial area. The term "maxillofacial pathology" refers to illnesses of the mouth that affect the salivary glands, jaws, facial muscles, and temporomandibular joints.

Oral microbiology is a dynamic biological system that includes up to 700 different microbe species. Streptococcus, Neisseria, Veillonella, eubacteria, and several obligate anaerobes are some of the most common bacteria found in the mouth. By preventing infective species from attaching to the membrane surface, these organisms maintain a mutualistic connection with the host. Oral microflora is a common source of dental plaque and a common cause of cavities and illness. Individuals get oral illness as a result of a variety of factors.

Dental illness is commonly caused by a combination of poor oral hygiene and variables that manipulate the oral microbic community structure, such as nutrition.
Maxillofacial surgery focuses on face, oral cavity, neck, head, and mouth reconstruction, as well as facial aesthetic surgery. The conditions involving teeth, jaws, soft tissues, and bones are recognised by maxillofacial surgery specialists.
