Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery / Oral Surgeon:

Oral and maxillofacial surgery is defined by the American Dental Association as:

“Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is the specialty of dentistry which includes the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region.”

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are used by patients for severe face & teeth trauma after accidents. They spend several years after becoming a general dentist in continuing their dental study to become an oral surgeon.  They train and do their residency many times in the ER and train along with MD staff. Many times they are abbreviated as OMS or OMSF. An oral surgeon can extract impacted wisdom teeth, place dental implants and help treat a wide variety of dental issues such as cancer in the mouth, etc.
