Oral surgery is something that all of us hope we never need and don’t even like to think about, but sometimes is necessary. A general dentist is qualified to handle a wide gamut of procedures and situations, but there are times when an oral surgeon must be consulted.
If the jaw needs to be realigned with reconstructive surgery, an oral surgeon handles this. There are certain dental implants in which the implant requires fusion to the bone and oral surgery is needed. An impacted tooth, such as the wisdom tooth, mandates surgery, as does the removal of cysts and tumors not only in the mouth area, but sometimes the neck, as well. The oral surgeon is responsible for restoring the jaw, cheek, eye socket, and nose fractures caused by whatever the reason. They are also trained to correct a cleft palate or tongue and perform procedures to cure the condition of sleep apnea.
Here, at our trusted and esteemed dental practice, we have oral surgeons available along with our general dentists. Our personnel are highly competent and ready to treat all of you and your family’s needs whenever you should need them treated!
