treatment of the mouth or teeth is referred to as oral surgery. This term
encompasses procedures performed by a qualified oral surgeon; including tooth
extractions, bone grafting, and dental implants. One type of oral surgery is
almost common for everyone, most notably in the teenage years when wisdom teeth
require removal. Another familiar oral surgery is a bone graft where bone
from one part of the jaw is needed for a dental implantation. Dental implants
provide a permanent surgical option when teeth are missing.
