Oral Surgery

Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure performed in or around your mouth and jaw, usually by a dental specialist who’s trained to perform certain kinds of oral surgeries. While the most common oral surgery is tooth extraction, some maxillofacial surgeons also can treat conditions like cleft palate and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Depending upon the national jurisdiction, oral and maxillofacial surgery may require a degree in medicine, dentistry or both. Some oral surgeries involve the repositioning of the jaw. In other instances, oral surgery may involve the removal of a tumor. Oral surgeries might be performed by any one of a number of different kinds of dental specialists, including endodontists, periodontists, and prosthodontists.
