Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a surgical specialty focusing on reconstructive surgery of the face, facial trauma surgery, the oral cavity, head and neck, mouth, and jaws, as well as facial cosmetic surgery.  An oral surgeon can help with issues ranging from wisdom teeth and impacted teeth to jaw misalignment and bone loss. They are also able to treat chronic diseases or conditions that derive from issues of the mouth.

Implantology is the branch of dentistry dedicated to dental implants. The dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is inserted into the jawbone (either the maxilla or the mandible). It often takes the form of a screw that is composed of titanium or titanium alloy. An implantologist is a dentist who has undergone and completed extensive training and has vast experience in inserting dental implants.
