- surgery targeting the teeth and the surrounding bone

- treatment of fractures
- surgical treatment of tumours
- reconstructive surgery
- demanding implant treatments
- temporomandibular joint surgery
Booking an appointment
You can book an appointment directly with a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery. You should book an appointment with a specialist for example if implantation or surgical removal of a wisdom tooth is needed.
Another way to get started is to book an appointment with one of the general dentists at Helmiäinen. The collaboration of our professionals is seamless, and our general dentists can also refer the patient to a specialist in oral and maxillofacial surgery if necessary.
