Wisdom teeth removal: Wisdom teeth are the four molars that usually erupt in the back of your mouth between the ages of 17 and 25. In some cases, wisdom teeth can grow in crooked or impacted, which can cause pain, infection, and damage to other teeth. An oral surgeon can remove wisdom teeth safely and effectively.

Dental implant placement: Dental implants are a type of tooth replacement that can be used to replace missing teeth. Implants are made of titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, a crown or bridge can be attached to it to replace the missing tooth.

Jaw surgery: Jaw surgery is a type of surgery that is used to correct problems with the alignment of the jawbone. Jaw surgery can be used to treat problems such as a crooked jaw, an overbite, or an underbite.

Oral cancer treatment: Oral cancer is a type of cancer that can affect the mouth, lips, tongue, and throat. Oral surgeons are specially trained to diagnose and treat oral cancer.
