3. Surgical Instruments

3-1. GENERAL

Oral surgery is that specialty of the dental profession concerned with diagnosis, surgical and adjunctive treatment of disease, injuries, and defects of the jaws and associated structures. Because of the nature of this specialty and the equipment used, the oral surgery service is often established in a less traveled area of the clinic. Patients undergoing surgical treatment should be isolated from patients receiving routine dental treatment.
