Oral surgeons are some of the most skilled in the world. They deal with a lot of different aspects of oral health, including dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, jaw repair, and even removing lesions and performing biopsies.
This really interesting branch of dentistry deserves as much of your attention as regular dentistry. These are a few of the must-know facts about oral surgery.
What oral surgeons do
An oral surgeon has a wide array of skills dedicated to helping patients treat, prevent, or repair serious problems. Some of the lesser-known procedures oral surgeons do include removing lesions, performing facial repair, cleft lip/palate repair, facial infections, and even sleep apnea. There are a ton of different procedures oral surgeons have expertise in that benefit your life in ways that aren’t completely dental-related.
