Leading New Jersey Oral Surgeons
What is an Oral Surgeon?
The American Dental Association (ADA) recognizes several specialties within the dental profession. Oral surgeons are trained in surgical techniques, pathology, periodontology, dental pain management, and anesthesia in order to ensure their patients’ safety, comfort, and successful results. Oral surgery requires four to six years of additional education and training beyond dental school.
The oral surgeons at Hudson Oral Surgery are board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and are members of multiple dental societies. They focus on complex surgical interventions to improve and repair dental and facial damage from accidents, disease, congenital anomalies, or neglect. Only those oral surgeons who pass rigorous written and oral exams are board certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Years of additional training and residency experience ensure they are the most qualified to perform any dental work requiring surgery.

Oral Surgeon vs. Dentist for Oral Surgery
Dentists are generalists who can perform a wide variety of preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dental procedures. Their work is typically focused on the more routine aspects of dental care, including checkups, cleaning, and cosmetic procedures that do not require surgery. Many also do restorations such as dentures and crowns and may extract teeth when no surgery is needed.
When the jawbone, soft tissues, and gums need surgical intervention, you should see an oral surgeon. Our oral surgeons perform simple and complex oral surgeries daily, honing their skills and perfecting their techniques. Years of additional training and experience in performing invasive oral surgery give oral surgeons an advantage over dentists, who may only occasionally perform surgery, if at all.
