Why Choose An Oral Surgeon

The American Dental Association recognizes oral and maxillofacial surgery as one of the specialty areas of dentistry. An oral surgeon specializes in surgical and non-invasive procedures that affect the mouth, face, and neck. They are also known as oral-maxillofacial surgeons and the treatment plan may include oral surgery procedures, reconstructive surgery, and cosmetic dentistry. They are trained to diagnose and treat functional and esthetic problems related to the face, mouth, teeth, and jaw.

Oral surgeons must complete advanced training and be certified as a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. They complete training at an accredited oral and maxillofacial surgery residency program in a hospital and are trained to treat patients at a dental practice, as well as in hospitals, outpatient facilities, and surgery centers.

Oral surgeons have advanced training, skills, and knowledge to treat and address the following:

  • Removing damaged teeth and administering anesthesia
  • Placing dental implants
  • Treating facial injuries
  • Evaluating pathologic problems affecting the head, neck and jaws
  • Providing relief from facial pain
  • Performing reconstructive and cosmetic surgery procedures
  • Performing corrective jaw surgery
  • Treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
