Dental Surgery
Oral surgery is an internationally recognized discipline in dentistry. Oral surgery deals with the correction of problems or damage to the mouth, teeth and jaw. It is not called oral and maxillofacial Surgery (OMS), this encompasses both oral surgery and surgery on the structures of the face, sinuses and neck. In the course of specialization, dental surgery became oral surgery, a branch oral and dental surgery. Oral surgery is commonly performed to extract wisdom teeth, for tooth transplantation, bone augmentation, but also to remove cysts and tumors. Watch the video above to learn more about oral surgery!

todd 7901 You will love the profession and it's full-scope blending medicine, dentistry, and surgery - way more than is even touched on within this video. I too matriculated into dental school from the very start knowing that I would go on into medical school and an oral and maxillofacial surgery residency. Best of luck! -Steven Koos DDS, MD
