Dental Surgery

Dental or oral surgery is a common form of surgery that many people may not recognize by name. Basically, it involves treating issues in the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) regions of a patient. This type of surgery is most closely associated with dentists, as it tends to address a variety of mouth-related issues, from facial injuries to the placement of dental implants and dentures.

Benefits of Dental Surgery

The benefits of visiting a dentist with oral-maxillofacial surgery experience and/or training are vast.

In addition to treating routine issues caused by age and natural decay, they are well equipped for dealing with unexpected traumatic events like accidents. In addition, they can help with passive issues like trouble sleeping, a bad bite or even cancer. Overall, dentists with oral-maxillofacial surgery experience are uniquely trained to benefit people with issues in the facial region.
