Bone tumours

In the jaw area, in addition to tumours which occur generally throughout the body, there can occur specific benign and cancerous tumours which arise in the dental system and require specific maxillofacial treatment.

Removal of benign and cancerous tumours

Benign tumours of the jaw are operated on exclusively via the mouth (oral access), in order to avoid disfiguration of the face, facial nerve damage and visible scars. In the case of benign tumours, a definitive reconstruction of the removed jaw section almost always takes place and always occurs without external scars. Cancerous tumours, particularly those in the upper jaw area, can often be removed without externally visible incisions thanks to techniques specially developed at the Klinik Professor Sailer.
