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 by The 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.” This health and stability is vital to ensure the quality, longevity and aesthetics of your dental services and restorations. Your mouth is more than your center of expression, your instrument of communication and your vehicle of nutrition…it is your health. Oral disease can greatly affect your overall health, so proper attention must be given to your oral condition.
