istock_YoungWhiteProfessionalManDentoalveolar surgery is the surgical management of diseases of the teeth and their supporting hard and soft tissues. This does not typically include the restoration of teeth and application of crowns, bridges, and other dental prostheses. These procedures include pre-prosthetic surgery to prepare the bone within the mouth for final restoration with either removable or non removable dental appliances.
