About our research
Oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) is surgery to correct a wide spectrum of diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. The control of patient pain and anxiety is fundamental to the practice of dentistry, OMFS and other types of surgery.
Current research interests include:
- prevention/management of postoperative pain;
- removal of third molars;
- prevention of domestic violence;
- aetiology of neuropathic pain;
- methods of enhancing axonal regeneration within the trigeminal system.
