Treatment of malformations in the maxillofacial region
Diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory conditions, dysfunctions and pain syndromes
Prof. Siegfried Jaenicke is the Senior Consultant of the Maxillofacial Surgical Clinic at the Implantology and Cosmetic Facial Surgery Centre in Osnabrueck (MKG Osnabrueck). The specialists under Prof. Jaenicke at MKG Osnabrueck treat the entire range of illnesses, injuries, fractures, malformations and changes in the shape of the teeth, of the oral cavity, of the jaw and of the face.
Since a surgical procedure in the maxillofacial region can be performed only where there is no pain, Prof. Jaenicke in Osnabrueck places particular importance on an effective suppression of pain. For more minor procedures, this can be achieved using local anaesthesia or, for longer and more invasive procedures, by the use of a general anaesthetic. Thanks to the anaesthetic technique utilised at MKG Osnabrueck, the highest possible degree of dependability is achieved. Depending on the severity of the condition and the scope of the procedure, the surgery is performed at the Maxillofacial Surgical Clinic in Osnabrueck as an out-patient procedure or following admission to the ward.
Where a condition is suspected in the region of the mouth, the jaw or the face, Prof. Jaenicke in Osnabrueck has the entire spectrum of advanced diagnostic techniques at his command in order to recognise, for example, inflammations, diseases of the oral cavity, diseases of the thyroid glands, pain syndromes, dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint, benign or malignant tumours reliably and subsequently to be able to initiate an adequate treatment in the Department of Maxillofacial Surgery in Osnabrueck, the Department of Oral Surgery in Osnabrueck and the Department of Maxillary Surgery in Osnabrueck. In selected cases, Prof. Jaenicke in Osnabrueck can restore an impaired nerve function using microsurgery, for example.
