The specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery concentrates on the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and defects of both the functional and aesthetic aspects of a patient's hard and soft tissue of the head, face, mouth, teeth, gums, jaw and neck.
As with any surgical specialist, dental or medical, Oral Surgeons go through extensive training to perform their specialty. It starts with four years of dental school in which candidates learn general dentistry. After earning a dental degree, Oral Surgeons are required to complete a 4 year hospital based residency. During this residency an Oral Surgeon trains with anesthesiologists, general surgeons, plastic surgeons and emergency room doctors.
Dentists and medical doctors refer to Oral Surgeons to treat patients who require wisdom teeth removal or who have conditions involving facial pain and trauma, cleft palates, misaligned jaws and cancerous growths.
