Why See an Oral Surgeon Instead of My Dentist?
Oral surgeons have more training and experience than general dentists, particularly in mouth and jaw surgery. An oral surgeon can diagnose complicated dental health issues, create a treatment plan, and conduct all aspects of dental surgery efficiently and effectively. Surgery by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon rather than a dentist is typically less invasive with quicker recovery time.
After receiving a four-year dental degree, oral surgeons spend four to six additional years training in medicine, anesthesia, oral surgery, and implant dentistry. This intense, immersive training often results in a medical degree in addition to a dental degree. Among the procedures usually referred to oral surgeons are:
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Dental implant placement
- Bone grafting
- Soft tissue grafts
- Impacted canine teeth
- Orthognathic surgery
- Traumatic jaw injuries
- Jaw infections
Because oral surgeons focus on surgery, they perform many more dental surgery procedures than general dentists. At Archstone Oral Surgery, we have complete surgical suites and a fully trained staff experienced in handling complex procedures and potential complications. They have received training in anesthesia, CPR, and advanced emergency care to ensure our patients’ safety at all times.
Although rare, there is always a risk of complications during oral surgery, including nerve damage, infection, and sinus damage. As an oral surgeon, Dr. Dela Rosa is adept at addressing these potential issues and quickly resolving them with expertise and compassion. When an invasive dental procedure is required, an oral surgeon is the safest option with the most successful outcomes.
