Some general dentists feel less competent to perform procedures like 3rd molar ("wisdom tooth") extraction if they don't perform that procedure frequently, and knowing there are certain complications which might occur with wisdom tooth extraction but are less likely with other tooth extractions. Oral Surgeons perform extractions very routinely, and hence are more comfortable with them than a general dentist who performs other procedures like fillings and crowns routinely. Also, Oral Surgeons are often certified to administer IV or General Anesthesia, which few general dentists are certified to provide, and which is often appropriate for wisdom tooth extraction.
