Who Should Visit an Oral Surgeon?
There are many reasons why you might need to visit an oral surgeon. You may have impacted wisdom teeth, be diagnosed with a soft tissue condition, or have other issues that are bothersome and concerning.
In some cases, more complex procedures might be necessary, such as the removal of multiple teeth, bone surgery, or advanced sedation. A qualified oral surgeon must perform these procedures.
If your dental professional discovers a suspicious area in your mouth, face, neck, or jaw, this could indicate a more serious oral health problem, and you might need to visit an oral surgeon for a biopsy.
The right oral surgery can offer functional and cosmetic benefits and improve the look and functioning of your smile and bite.
