Common Oral Surgery Procedures

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel, and function like natural teeth. 

Wisdom teeth are the last molars to erupt within the mouth. Most often, there isn’t enough room in the mouth for these teeth.

Corrective Jaw Surgery- also referred to as orthognathic surgery, adjusts or realigns the jaw.

Types of facial injuries can range from injuries of teeth, to extremely severe injuries of the skin and bones of the face. 

The CAOMS is designed to support the ongoing requirements of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons and ensure that they are able to maintain excellence in their area of specialty.
