Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

Patients may benefit from the extensive training and experience of Temple’s oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Whether extracting an impacted tooth, repairing damage sustained during an accident or relieving the pain from a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, our surgeons work with doctors from across the health system to offer the best care for your condition.
