Why Would a Dentist Refer you to an Oral Surgeon?

Posted on 11/7/2022 by Dr McMurray
Why Would a Dentist Refer you to an Oral Surgeon?Oral surgeons are specialists who offer several surgical treatments for conditions that affect the neck, mouth, jaw, or face. They perform procedures such as extracting teeth, dental implants, correcting jaw surgery, and extracting wisdom teeth. If your dentist notes that you need any of the treatment methods, they will refer you to oral surgery for professional and advanced treatments.

When you Require Tooth Extraction

If your teeth are fractured or cracked, you will require the service of an oral surgeon to rectify them. The procedure is a bit complex as the surgeon must use anesthesia to extract the teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth also need oral surgery, as the process tends to be quite complicated.

When You Require Bone Grafts

A bone graft helps to add volume to your jaw, especially when there is bone loss. The procedure is done to ensure you regain the integrity of your gum. A bone graft might be necessary to ensure you have solid and thick bones if you want a tooth replacement. An oral surgeon is exceptionally qualified to ensure you have healthy bones.

When Require Jaw Surgery

If you have any issues with swallowing or biting, a dentist can recommend jaw surgery. The surgery helps to address any skeletal irregularities that can cause misalignment of jaws and teeth. An oral surgeon helps to evaluate the problem and perform jaw surgery. The expert has top-rated surgical knowledge and training to resolve various jaw issues.

When You Require Dental Implants

Dental implants are crucial in case you have any missing teeth. The surgery places a metal rod on the root of your tooth. It is essential to seek surgery services to ensure the implants are correctly placed. The implants help to improve your appearance and improve comfort. A surgeon is an expert in ensuring that dental implants are great.
