Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedures performed on your teeth, gums, etc. Generally, bone grafting, tooth extraction, and wisdom teeth extraction are performed surgically. They are done under the influence of local anesthetics, so you will not feel any pain during the procedure. You might feel slight discomfort after the effect of the anesthesia wears off, but it will eventually go away as your surgery site heals.
Oral surgery is performed when no other restorative procedures work. Generally, dentist in Miami, FL, tries to save your natural teeth. But sometimes, the decay is so intense that your natural teeth cannot be saved. Similarly, when wisdom teeth come out at a weird angle, they can cause a lot of pain. Also, as they are misaligned, it gets tough to clean them; thus, they become a site for cavities. In such cases, surgical extractions are the only way out.
