WISDOM TEETH / ORAL SURGERY

Why get oral surgery?

While the removal of wisdom teeth is the most well-known type of oral surgery, there are many reasons why oral surgery may be required, including:

Repairing or treating serious conditions affecting a patient’s teeth, palate, lips, jaw or face
Alleviating problems due to obstructed sleep apnea, infections or facial pain
Repairing maxillofacial region damage caused by a serious accident or injury

What is an oral surgeon?

Oral surgeons, also known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, are qualified dentists who have completed an additional four years of specialized training. Their advanced education includes anesthesiology and the diagnosis and surgical treatment of defects, injuries and diseases of the mouth, jaw, teeth, neck, gums and other soft tissues of the head.
