How Oral Surgeons Can Save Your Smile

If you have a dental concern that requires surgical treatment, your dentist in Atlanta will refer you to an oral-maxillofacial surgeon, which is simply the formal name for oral surgeons. Discover the many ways that oral surgeons can improve your smile.

What Are Oral Surgeons?

Oral surgeons are dental professionals who specialize in repairing and restoring problems affecting the facial region. They perform a wide range of oral surgery, from treating the serious damage of facial trauma to aesthetic and cosmetic procedures. Oral surgeons receive years of specialized training to treat these advanced cases. While some oral surgery procedures can be costly, many oral surgeons offer payment plans and affordable dental care options to ease your mind and your cost.

  • Performing outpatient oral surgery procedures that require ambulatory anesthesia
  • Extracting a tooth
  • Replacing missing or extracted teeth with dental implants
  • Realigning the jaw
