Why You Would Need to See an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for an Extraction
Posted on 9/6/2021 by Dr. Chad Rebhun
Usually, our oral and maxillofacial surgeon will handle dental procedures that our general dentist cannot handle. While tooth extraction is a common practice at our general dentist's office, there are instances when our general dentist will refer you to our oral and maxillofacial surgeon for teeth extraction. This is especially the case if you have an impacted wisdom tooth or fractured tooth. Besides being qualified in these processes, our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are knowledgeable in most medical practices and will perform these procedures while ensuring your maximum comfort. Their knowledge of medical procedures also puts them in a better position to handle complications should they arise during the procedure.
Removal of Impacted Wisdom Tooth
The removal of wisdom teeth is technical due to their location in the mouth. These teeth may partially erupt or fail to erupt and cause impaction of the surrounding bone. To remove such teeth, you need our oral maxillofacial surgeon's services, given their level of training and experience. Also, even if your wisdom teeth do not become impacted, they are still difficult to pull and may pose unseen complications in the future; hence, the need for expert treatment. In addition to wisdom tooth complications, if you have other medical conditions such as diabetes, blood pressure, and heart disease, you should schedule tooth extraction with our surgeons to handle them better should they arise.
Removal of Fractured Teeth
If you have a chipped or fractured tooth, seeking the services of our oral and maxillofacial surgeons for tooth extraction may be ideal compared to our general dentists. This is because the procedure may be more technical for our general dentist to handle. If your tooth is oddly positioned in your mouth, severely decayed, or have limited jaw mobility, you should also schedule your tooth extraction with our oral and maxillofacial surgeon.
