There are many different types of doctors and surgeons, each with their own specialty. When it comes to oral surgery, there are two main types: oral surgeons and dental surgeons. Oral surgeons primarily treat problems inside the mouth, such as tooth decay or gum disease. They can perform simple procedures like removing wisdom teeth or putting fillings. An oral surgeon works on areas outside of your simple mouth structure. They can operate on your jaw to correct a misalignment or repair damage caused by an accident.

Dentistry is a general term used to describe the treatment of the teeth, gums, and mouth.

Dentistry is a general term used to describe the treatment of teeth, gums, and mouth. Dentists can have many specialties such as oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics (better known as braces), prosthodontics (dentures), and more.

Oral surgery is specifically defined by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons as the diagnosis, surgical and related treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects involving both the functional and aesthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the head, mouth, teeth, gums, jaws, and neck.

Oral surgeons are specifically trained to work with the mouth, teeth, and jaws. They are trained to treat patients with all types of problems, including aesthetic and functional, as well as hard and soft tissue problems. This means that oral surgeon training requires a solid foundation in dentistry as well as surgical procedures on the mouth, face, and neck.

Oral surgeons are also able to perform certain dental procedures such as tooth extraction or crown repair because they have received extensive training in these areas during their residency programs.

Dental surgery is any procedure performed on or around your teeth.

Dental surgery is any procedure performed on or around your teeth. This can include complex procedures such as dental implants or wisdom tooth extractions. A dentist will treat patients with issues such as tooth decay or gum disease, but they will also use their expertise to perform more complicated surgeries such as treating oral cancer or reconstructing the jaw after facial trauma.

A maxillofacial surgeon is a type of dentist who specializes in oral, maxillofacial, and plastic surgery. They are able to perform complex procedures such as dental implants or wisdom tooth extraction.

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth by fusing a titanium post into your jawbone and attaching an artificial tooth or bridge to it. Wisdom teeth removal is also a common procedure because they can become impacted, causing pain and damage to surrounding teeth if they are not removed before they erupt around the age of 20 to 25. This can be done surgically under local anesthesia or sedation (drowsiness) . Both procedures require specialized training from doctors who have additional residency degrees after completing their dental training (doctorate). 

Both procedures are invasive, but tooth removal requires only one incision, while dental implant surgery requires multiple incisions to properly align the new restoration within the bone structure of your jaw. Dental implant surgery is more expensive than wisdom teeth removal because it involves more extensive preparation of your mouth before an artificial crown is placed that will remain in your mouth permanently, meaning there will still be scarring even if it heals properly. However, despite this concern, most patients find comfort in knowing that their smile is more beautiful than ever!
