Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery is a specialty of dentistry that requires an additional 4 to 6 years of additional training beyond dental school. Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons are trained to perform advanced procedures of the face (maxillofacial) and oral structures. As part of their unique training, oral and maxillofacial surgeons are required to obtain internships in general surgery and anesthesiology. Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons are well-trained healthcare professionals that perform intravenous sedation, dental extraction (wisdom teeth removal), dental implants, bone grafting for dental implants, facial trauma, oral pathology, temporomandibular joint disorder and corrective jaw surgery.
