Your general dentist can perform many different types of procedures such as fluoride treatments, sealants, and fillings. Many can also perform procedures like crowns, veneers, and root canals.
If you need surgery, however, you want someone who has the experience and expertise to perform the surgical procedures you need to restore your oral health as well as your quality of life.
An oral surgeon, or oral and maxillofacial surgeon, is a dental specialist. Like all other dentists, including general dentists, oral surgeons attend four years of dental school. After these four years, additional, specialized, education and training are needed. To become oral surgeons, we spend an additional four to six years attending formal classes and lectures to learn about the latest tools, techniques, and technologies used in oral surgery. We also receive hands-on training with real patients, which helps us to gain the experience we need to provide you with the expert care you need.
As oral surgeons, we perform oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures. There are some different procedures that we perform, including:
• Tooth extractions, including the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth • Dental implant placement • Correction of congenital defects like cleft lip and cleft palate • Treating facial trauma. We can set fractured facial bones, repair soft tissue lacerations, reconnect nerves, restore function to salivary glands, and more. • Reconstructive, or cosmetic, facial surgery • Orthognathic, or jaw, surgery • Surgical treatment for sleep apnea • Surgical treatment for TMJ disorder • Removal of cysts and tumors • Administering anesthesia
There are many ways in which you can benefit from visiting an oral surgeon. One of the biggest benefits is that we have the experience and expertise to handle delicate or complex situations. Our facility is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality of care. We are outfitted with the latest tools, technologies, and techniques to provide you with the expert care that you need and deserve.
As oral surgeons, we perform many different types of surgical procedures daily. Because of this, we are incredibly experienced in performing these procedures. We can determine the best surgical procedures to meet your specific needs. We can ensure that your procedure goes smoothly and that you achieve optimal results. You can rest easy knowing that you are receiving the best care possible.
We are also highly experienced in dental sedation. It is important that you remain calm and comfortable during your oral surgery. In addition to allowing us to provide you with the care you need in a safe, effective way, it also helps to improve your overall patient experience. In addition to providing dental sedation, we are also able to provide general anesthesia when necessary. We can help to determine the right kind of sedation to meet your specific needs.
When you have significant oral issues that require surgical treatment, a highly experienced oral surgeon is needed. For more information, call Dallas Center for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery today at 972-733-0414.
Dr. Sherry was very professional and personable. Day one of meeting him he made me and my family confident about surgery. He was available for questions, concerns, and did a thorough job talking us through the process/recovery. His team was also incredible, so helpful and friendly. I had a great healing process, no complications, and overall a great experience! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sherry and his team if you are even considering oral surgery.
