When you hear the words "oral surgery," you may think of a hospital setting, general anaesthesia, and one or more days in recovery from this type of dental procedure. Because of that, you might be surprised to learn what is actually considered oral surgery in dentistry. Many dental procedures performed in a general dental office are considered oral surgery and patients who require such procedures are booked for it without the inconvenience of being put on a waiting list in a different office for treatment.
Examples of oral surgery procedures:
Tooth Extractions (WISDOM TOOTH)
Corrective Jaw Surgery
Detection and Treatment of Diseases
