What is surgical dentistry

Surgical dentistry is a branch of dentistry that practices treatment methods like teeth preservation operations, bone grafting, and provision of dental implants, as well as a variety of aesthetic surgeries in periodontology. Surgical dentistry in its practice also includes tooth extraction (simple/complex) and the removal of wisdom teeth.

Due to the surgical nature of these procedures where necessary, a recommendation is usually made to have them done under sedation to make the experience more pleasant.
