About Essendon Day Procedure Centre
At the Essendon Day Procedure Centre we specialise in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are surgical specialists who treat conditions, defects, injuries and aesthetic aspects of the mouth, teeth, jaw and face. Specifically we are involved in the removal of wisdom teeth, other teeth, implants for replacement teeth, pathology of the mouth including cysts, trauma to the jaw, including fractured jaws and cheekbones and orthognathic surgery for the correction of jaw discrepancies.
