Surgical management of hard and soft tissue problems in the mouth and jaws.
Oral Surgery is the specialist field of dentistry that involves surgical management of bony (jaw) and soft tissue problems in and around the mouth. The most common example is the removal of impacted teeth such as wisdom teeth (third molars) which are causing infection problems.
