What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure performed on your teeth, gums, jaws or other
oral structures. This includes extractions, implants, gum grafts and jaw surgeries. Oral surgery
is usually performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a periodontist. These are dental
specialists who have advanced training in oral surgery procedures.
Why is Oral Surgery performed?
You could need oral surgery for a number of reasons. Your dentist might recommend it if you have:
• Extensive tooth decay.
• Damaged teeth.
• Gum disease.
• Impacted teeth.
• Missing teeth.
• Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD).
• Bone loss (jaw).
• Sleep apnea.
• Oral cancer.
• Benign oral pathology (noncancerous lumps or bumps).
