WHY DO I NEED AN ORAL AND MAXILLOFACIAL SURGEON?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the most highly qualified to place dental implants, extract teeth and perform other surgeries that involve oral structures and jaw bones. As stated byThe Dental Implant Guide, “patients should understand that there is a significant difference between residency trained surgical specialists (oral surgeons and periodontists) and [general] dentists.” An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a dental specialist with hospital-based, residency-based experience, often recommended by your dentist (or other health care professional) to manage the entire mouth and reestablish structures of your teeth. “It is the extensive amount of training and experience of the surgical specialists that enables them to diagnose and manage the potential complications that can occur with surgical procedures.”
We pride ourselves on our technical excellence in oral and maxillofacial surgery as well as the wealth of knowledge we have available. We invest in our patients’ care to provide the smoothest treatment possible. We will review your individual needs, help you set your oral health goals and construct a personal plan that reflects your needs to help you reach your goals.
