Oral Surgeon: When is it Time to Visit a Specialist
Oral surgeons have years of advanced training regarding the teeth, jaw, mouth, and facial structure. They are trained in many different areas and are important for more aspects than just having wisdom teeth removed.
What can an oral surgeon help with?
Oral surgeons can help with a number of issues, including facial reconstruction after a traumatic facial injury. They are also trained in the airway and can provide options for opening and reconstructing different facial features to help in that regard.
Oral surgeons also always provide more options when it comes to sedation during these procedures, including anesthesia. For people who are working through or overcoming different injuries and issues, this can be an added peace of mind depending on what procedures is recommended to have completed.
Oral surgeons can help by replacing lost teeth
Oral surgeons are known for removing wisdom teeth and other teeth as well. However, they are also the best at replacing teeth. Whether it is dental implants or another chosen option, oral surgeons can do the placement of the implant and all the preparatory construction before the procedure.
Dental implant surgery requires a good jawbone and oral surgeons can do restorative operations on the jaw bone if it is needed to ensure the implant is secure.
During emergencies, oral surgeons can help
When it comes to some dental emergencies and saving a tooth, an oral surgeon can be beneficial to visit. They can help in guiding a person to ensure they do not lose a tooth or can help in beginning to replace a tooth that has been knocked out or become dislodged.
