Oral Surgery

oral-surgery


Oral Surgery
 is a recognized international specialty in dentistry. It includes the diagnosis, surgical and related treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the head, mouth, teeth, gums, jaws and neck.[1]

It involves, but is not limited to: dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, TMJ disorder, facial trauma, corrective jaw surgery, oral pathology, anesthesia and bone grafts.

Unlike in the United States, in some areas of the world it is separate from Oral and Maxillofacial surgery (OMS, OMFS, or “Maxfacs”), which is a unique specialty usually requiring both medical and dental qualifications of 8–10 years of education after college.
