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. 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. 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.
