Situations That Warrant Visiting An Oral Surgeon

Posted on 1/23/2023 by Evan
Situations That Warrant Visiting An Oral SurgeonDentists play a crucial role in ensuring oral health is well taken care of by offering several dental care services as per individual's needs. Oral surgeons have a greater level of training in oral surgeries, advanced treatments, and emergencies. They have great skill sets in dental and facial structures and are in a position to address dental care needs properly. Here, we outline situations in which the services of an oral surgeon may be needed.

Dental Emergencies

Several dental emergencies are linked to trauma and accidents that cause damage to the jawbone or cause the destruction of several teeth at once. Maxillofacial surgeons are well-placed to handle such emergencies due to their level and scope of experience. They can help make appropriate diagnoses and subsequent appropriate treatment in dental emergencies involving trauma.

In a case where teeth are damaged, a maxillofacial surgeon can help correct this by reinserting teeth in the sockets. A maxillofacial surgeon can also take care of a fractured jawbone by performing treatments that allow healing without altering the patient's appearance.

Dental Implant Procedure

Fitting dental implants call for a highly experienced dental professional who is not only an expert but also in a position to plan well for the procedure. This procedure needs to be done according to stipulated specifications in order to ensure it does not fail and there is no negative impact on the adjacent structures.

Oral surgeons come in handy in fixing dental implants because they know how to fix them. Maxillofacial surgeons can put existing bone structures to the best use and where need be, do bone grafting first to allow for dental implant placement.

Extraction of Wisdom Teeth

Removing wisdom teeth can be difficult given that accessing them can prove to be hard. Oral surgeons are skilled and experienced enough to deal with complex cases of extractions and get the teeth extracted successfully.

For wisdom teeth removal and other dental surgery procedures, kindly contact our maxillofacial team for an appointment.
