When Do You Need Oral Surgery?

Are you worried because your dentist in Baltimore has said you need to see an oral-maxillofacial surgeon? Relax, because you’re simply being sent to receive the specialized care that only oral surgeons provide.

Understand the Demand for Oral Surgeons

A general dentist is best for regular check-ups and cleanings, but oral surgeons offer more advanced dental treatments for more serious problems. Oral surgeons are dental professionals who specialize in restoring, repairing, and reconstructing the face, jaw, and neck. They perform a wide range of oral surgery, from treating the serious damage of facial trauma to aesthetic or cosmetic procedures. Oral surgeons receive years of specialized training to treat these advanced cases. While some oral surgery procedures can be somewhat costly, many oral surgeons offer special financing and affordable dental care options to put the care you need within reach.

How Oral Surgeons Can Help and Heal

If you need oral surgery, your dentist in Baltimore will refer you to oral surgeons they trust for the very best care. There are many advanced dental procedures that oral surgeons offer, including:

  • Extracting a tooth
  • Replacing missing or extracted teeth with dental implants
  • Aligning a misaligned jaw
  • Correcting jaw joints
  • Diagnosing and removing cysts and tumors found in the facial area
  • Reconstructing the facial area after injury, accident, or illness
  • Performing cosmetic procedures on the face to enhance appearance
  • Performing outpatient oral surgery procedures that require ambulatory anesthesia
