Oral medicine is also referred to as dental medicine or maxillofacial medicine. Even known as stomatology, it focuses on the treatment of the structures located around the mouth acting as an interface between dentistry and medicine. Predominantly concerned with the clinical diagnosis and non-surgical management of the orofacial region, it treats non-dental pathologies where systemic diseases have a tendency to manifest.
