They included oral examination, dental radiography, nerve blocks, dental cleaning, periodontal surgery, tooth extraction, endodontic treatment, restorations and prosthodontic crowns, oral tumor resections, jaw fracture repair, palate defect surgery, temporomandibular joint procedures, and regional lymph node and salivary gland resections.
