What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is an area of medicine that focuses on problems with or damage to the teeth, jaw and mouth. The oral and maxillofacial surgeon combines oral surgery with added focus on the structures of the sinuses, the soft tissues of the mouth, and the face and neck.
The most common procedures performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon include the removal of wisdom teeth, repair and treatment of jaw problems and preparing the mouth for dental implants.
What is the difference between an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and a Dental Surgeon?
A dental surgeon deals primarily with the surgery of the teeth and jaws. They perform many root canals and can also extract the wisdom teeth.
However, as stated above, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon not only has the extensive knowledge of the teeth and jaw bones that a dental surgeon has, they also have the added knowledge of the entire face, neck and sinuses.
At Denver Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, you’ll be benefiting from Dr. Matthew Schacht’s training in not just surgery of the teeth and jaws, but of the whole head, neck, face, and soft tissues of the mouth as well!
