When Do You Need the Expertise of an Oral Surgeon?

dca-blog_oral-surgery-three-people

Oral surgeons are dentists who receive special training to handle advanced procedures that include dental implants, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems, wisdom teeth extractions, and other restorative and cosmetic procedures. In addition to dentistry, the oral surgeon also treats oral cancers, facial injuries, broken jaws, and knocked-out teeth. The specialized training requires four years of dental school and an additional four years of surgical residency at a hospital. When a problem is outside of your family dentist’s scope, you may receive a referral to see an oral surgeon.

Oral Surgeons and Dental Anesthesia

Oral surgeries and extensive dental procedures often require general anesthesia to prevent pain. Oral surgeons are trained to administer all types of anesthesia, so they can make your experience as comfortable as possible. General anesthesia is usually reserved for extensive work that involves incisions into soft tissues. Local anesthetics such as lidocaine are adequate for smaller repairs. If you receive general anesthesia, you will need to arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery.

Finding Dental Surgeons

Finding an oral surgeon is usually not a difficult process. In many cases, your family dentist can recommend someone who is located nearby and accepts your dental plan. Before committing to an appointment, be sure you are comfortable with the surgeon and his or her credentials. It is also advisable to discuss potential costs with your insurance provider before undergoing extensive dental procedures. If you don’t have a family dentist, check your local listings for available providers. In a crisis, go to your local hospital emergency room for care.
