We are Oral Surgery Experts
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery includes removing or restructuring teeth, parts of the jawbones, or nearby structures. In some cases, such as wisdom teeth removal, there is simply not enough room in the mouth for these teeth, so they must be removed. In other cases, an injury may require a bone graft or similar procedure. Or, a biopsy may be needed to diagnose unhealthy cell growth around the mouth. Our oral surgeons use the most advanced technology to diagnose oral health concerns and make oral surgery procedures as minimally invasive as possible. At The View DSC in Arcadia, CA, near San Gabriel, CA, our oral surgeons use years of experience to perform all types of common and complex surgeries.
What Training is Required for Oral Surgeons?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons do not only deal with issues concerning teeth and gums. These specialists also diagnose and treat issues affecting the jaws, forehead, cheekbones, skull, and other areas around the mouth and face. This requires years of training and education, including dental school and 4 to 6 years of training after dental school. Oral surgeons are trained to address functional as well as aesthetic issues that are making it difficult for you to eat or chew, or issues that are affecting your appearance. With years of experience and education, oral surgeons have the skills necessary to diagnose and resolve issues quickly.
Our Oral Surgery Services
There are many types of oral surgery, though tooth extraction is the most common. Tooth extraction can help to make room for other teeth or remove teeth that don’t have enough space to come in properly, like wisdom teeth. Tooth extraction can also be used to remove teeth that are damaged or decayed, so the patient can get a dental implant instead. If your teeth or jaw bone have been damaged in an accident, oral surgery can also help to restore the damage.
