Oral surgery is used to correct problems or damage to the mouth, teeth and jaw. This is often referred to as oral and maxillofacial surgery, as oral surgery can be performed in conjunction with operations on the structures of the face, sinuses and neck/throat. Oral surgery is used to remove wisdom teeth, prepare the mouth for prosthetics, correct jaw problems and to perform root canals.
Oral surgeons also perform more advanced procedures that may be required if the structures of the mouth have been damaged by trauma or severe illness.
The following treatments are available:
