Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a new field in which endoscopy has become established and is rapidly growing in importance. The instruments developed by KARL STORZ are used in a wide range of endoscopic, minimally invasive operations. Sialendoscopy is a minimally invasive technique that allows establishment of a solid diagnosis of most pathologies. Endoscopic treatment of sialolithiasis with stone baskets, micro burrs and auxiliary instruments offers a minimally invasive alternative to open salivary gland surgery. Endoscopy is also becoming increasingly important in temporomandibular joint arthroscopy. Temporomandibular joint arthroscopy and endoscopically assisted treatment of temporomandibular fractures are the current standards of care used as alternatives to open surgery. Furthermore, endoscopy offers the possibility of minimally invasive interventions in maxillary sinus surgery, implantology as well as apicoectomy and root canal endoscopy.
