Oral Surgery is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of problems in the mouth and jaws.
The most common surgical procedure in the mouth is the removal of a tooth. Oral Surgeons are experts in the removal of wisdom teeth and teeth that your dentist may find difficult to remove.
Oral Surgeons also commonly treat conditions in the mouth that cause lumps or swellings. These may need to be biopsied or removed, depending on the cause. Cysts can occur within the jaw bones and the mouth and are typically treated with surgery.
Oral surgery is the discipline that manages the surgical components of dental implant treatment and bone grafting.
