Oral Surgery is a dental specialty focused on the diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of diseases, injuries and defects related to the functional and esthetic aspects of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws (maxillofacial area).

ORAL SURGERY PROCEDURES
A tooth that is severely damaged may need to be removed. Removing a tooth is necessary when decay or an abscessed tooth is so severe that no other treatment will cure the infection. If a wisdom tooth doesn’t have room to grow (impacted wisdom tooth), resulting in pain, infection or other dental problems, it might need to be pulled.
Soft tissues surgery
Gum recession is the process in which the tissue that surrounds the teeth pulls away from a tooth, exposing more of the tooth or the tooth’s root. Soft tissue grafting is most frequently performed to replace or build up adequate attached keratinized gingiva (gums) around natural teeth or implants.
Cosmetic surgery is a procedure that improves the appearance of your smile. Gingivoplasty is performed to remove excessive gingival tissue surrounding to provide better contours around the teeth or implant.
Sinus lift surgery
A sinus lift is a surgery that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars. It’s sometimes called a sinus augmentation. The bone is added between your jaw and the maxillary sinuses, which are on either side of your nose. To make room for the bone, the sinus membrane has to be moved upward, or “lifted”. It is extremely demanding surgical technique that uses special instruments and synthetic bone biomaterial and membrane.
The implants are tooth root substitutes that are surgically anchored in place in the jawbone and act to stabilize the artificial teeth to which they are attached.The procedure for placing a dental implant may vary depending on the technique used and by the type of implant used. Dental implants are becoming a common procedure to replace missing teeth, or to provide stability to a new or existing denture.
Odontogenic cysts, caused by tooth itself, may develop in any area inside the mouth. Cysts are usually benign and slowly growing formations but reaching extremely large sizes unless interventions are not performed on time, they may harm normal anatomical body cavities. The removed cysts are sent to the pathology laboratory for examination.
