Why Do I need An Oral Surgeon?

Posted on 11/7/2022 by Malmquist Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Why Do I need An Oral Surgeon?When you have an underlying dental problem, it is important to visit the dentist's office. At the office, you will receive important educational tips that will help you achieve proper dental health. Also, our dentist can assist you in highlighting issues that require expert care. Some dental conditions require you to receive treatments from a qualified dental surgeon. At our facility you will find highly trained Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons (OMS) who can offer specialized care that general dentistry is unable to.

Tooth Extraction

Even though dentists can treat many dental issues, there are complex problems that require the intervention of a surgeon. For instance, extracting a wisdom tooth requires cutting through your gum, and an oral surgeon is knowledgeable and skilled to offer optimal care in such situations. During a tooth extraction, you might require sedation which our oral surgeon has training and medical clearance to perform. You will therefore be in safe hands when you come in for your surgical operation.

Dental Implant Placement

Dental implant place is another procedure that requires an incision into your gums, therefore calling for an oral surgeon. Dental implants may also require you to get a bone grafting procedure that can only be done by a dental surgeon. Bone grafting is a procedure that adds to your jawbone if you had insufficient bone tissue to support dental implants.
