Dr. Nilesh’s Message
Deformity is defined as abnormal form; disfigurement; loss of the natural arrangement 1. Humans have two jaws – an upper and a lower -and jaw deformities are disfigurements of one or both jaws. The lower jaw is a single bone, the mandible. The upper jaw is a functional unit composed of four separate bones: the right and left maxillae and the right and left palatine bones; with regard to the latter, we are more specifically referencing the parts of these bones located below the zygome (i.e. the cheek or molar bone). Clinically, the upper jaw is also called the ‘maxilla’ a term that can be confusing because it is also the name of a bone. Henceforth the term maxilla will be used to refer to the upper jaw.
Some jaw deformities occur in utero and are present at birth, while others are acquired later in life. They originate from many causes: genetic abnormalities, deformations, intrauterine disruptions, diseases, injuries, or abnormal function. Jaw deformities affect at least one of the geometric properties of the jaws: Size, Position, Orientation, Shape, Symmetry For a given patient, a jaw deformity can be the primary problem or it ca be seconday to disease,injury or functional impairment. One instance of a patien for whom a deformity is the primary problem is a woman with a familial history of mandibular prognathism who has developed this condition during puberty. Example of secondary deformities include a young man with an anterior open-bite from condylar destruction resulting from juvenile arthritis(a disease) , a teenager with rerognathia and facial asymmetry caused by condylar fracture and TMJ ankylosis during childhood ( an injury), and a patient with anterior open-bite due to mouth- breathing (functional impairment)
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is one of the oldest branches of dentistry. Evidence of oral and maxillofacial surgery on skulls dating back to hundreds of thousands of years have been unearthed around the globe. These oral and maxillofacial surgeries range from simple extractions to trephination of abscesses. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is the bedrock of dentistry around which the other specialties developed. One reason could be that oral and maxillofacial surgery was traditionally utilized for pain relief. Many ancient surgical texts relate simple oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures that were in practice for pain relief. Soft tissue surgery was a major part of oral and maxillofacial surgery in ancient times.
Ancient Chinese, Indians and the Mayans were enthusiastic practitioners of oral and maxillofacial surgery in ancient times. Ancient warfare involved close hand to hand combat unlike modern warfare. This resulted in horrific soft tissue and hard tissue facial injuries. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons were an essential part of every army. It was during wartime that the greatest advances in oral and maxillofacial surgery were achieved in ancient times. Splinting of injuries and infection control of facial wounds were an essential part of every oral and maxillofacial surgeon’s armamentarium in the ancient days. Each small advance had led to the development of the highly scientific field of oral and maxillofacial surgery that we have today, which deals with diseases, injuries and defects.
