Oral surgery consists of any surgical procedure that is performed on the jaw, gums, or teeth to improve function, appearance, and/or health. Although it can be a standalone field, oral surgery is often performed by dentists of other specialties who have been trained and qualified as oral surgeons. For example:

Oral surgery requires specialized training and expertise and is often necessary to treat conditions or injuries that cannot be treated by a general dentist.
Depending on the type and extent of oral surgery needed, your procedure will be performed either in a hospital setting or in a designated area of your dentist’s office. Many standard outpatient oral surgeries like tooth extractions, wisdom teeth removal, and root canals are done at your dentist’s office. More complex procedures like corrective jaw surgery, grafting, or reconstructive surgery may require an inpatient stay at a hospital facility.
Before your procedure begins, you will receive some kind of sedation to assist with pain management or even anxiety, and the sedation you receive will, again, depend on the type and extent of your surgery.
Once you have been anesthetized, your doctor will begin the procedure.
After your oral surgery, there will be some level of recovery as well as post-operative instructions. It’s important to follow the instructions carefully and attend all follow-up appointments to make sure your mouth is healing as it should to prevent future complications.
