What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is also called maxillofacial surgery. Oral refers to your mouth, while maxillofacial refers to your jaws and face.
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon may diagnose, treat, or perform surgery to resolve injuries or issues in the head, neck, face, jaws and hard and soft oral tissues. Oral and maxillofacial surgery is an internationally recognized surgical specialty.
