What Does an Oral Surgeon Do?

Posted on 3/22/2021 by Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery
What Does an Oral Surgeon Do?Whenever you have a toothache or require any dental work, you might think that you need to go to a dentist. While that is not wrong, not all dentists are the same, and therefore, not every doctor or physician you might see will be right for you.

If you have been suggested by your primary care provider to visit an oral surgeon and are wondering what they do, here's what an oral surgeon does and when you should go to them.

Tooth Extractions

When you have a painful wisdom tooth coming out or even an infection in any other teeth, a tooth extraction becomes necessary, and for that, you need to go to an oral surgeon.

Dental Implants

Once you have had a tooth extraction, you probably don't want to stay that way with a big gap showing in your smile. That's why, and for many other reasons, you opt for dental implants, and that's another area handled by oral surgeons.

Facial Trauma

Oral surgeons are also responsible for treating facial trauma. They can treat any injuries on the face involving the jaws, cheek, oral tissues, and sometimes even the forehead, eye sockets, and nasal bone.

Corrective Jaw Surgery

Oral surgeons perform corrective jaw surgery or orthognathic surgery. This involves correcting any bite problems that your regular orthodontist could not treat.

Remove Tumors

You should also consider going to an oral surgeon if you have any complex tumors around your oral cavity. Oral surgeons can safely remove such tumors, the process of which is also called oncologic surgery.

As compared to a regular dentist, an oral surgeon usually goes through additional training to be better skilled at treating such dental conditions. Therefore, if you are suffering from any of these, contact at Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery for expert consultation from one of the best oral surgeon.
