What is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon?
An Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon is an internationally recognized specialty within dentistry that specializes in treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects to the mouth and facial structures. After four years of dental school, oral surgeons spend 4 to 6 years of additional training in a hospital based surgical residency. In residency they gain vast experience with dental implant surgery, removal of teeth, corrective jaw surgery, facial trauma, pathology, anesthesia and treatment of medically complex patients. Patients are typically referred to oral surgeons by their general dentist when they require treatment outside their dentist’s standard scope of care. Oral surgeons are often referred to for extractions, dental implants, biopsies, bone grafts, and pathology. They are also referred patients who have significant anxiety, as they can provide a wide spectrum of sedation anesthesia in their office.
