What’s the difference between an oral surgeon and your local dentist?
Often patients tend to believe your dentist and your oral surgeon are the same person, offer the same services and perform the same routine oral health checks. The difference is greatly dependant on the type of training your dentist or surgeon has gone through. This will then determine the types of oral services they are able to provide you with.
General dentists study dentistry along with many years of practical hands-on training, and some can perform minor oral surgical services. However, the scope of their work is very limited and typically includes dental care such as oral exams, professional teeth cleanings and scaling, fillings, crowns, sealants, root canals, and overall gum care.
An oral surgeon is needed when your dental concerns require either the tooth to be extracted, or a restructuring of your bone and gum tissue needs to take place. Oral surgeons in Brisbane have extensive and advanced training in their field, and as a patient, your dentist will typically refer you to an oral surgeon in more severe cases.
An oral surgeon will help with issues ranging from wisdom teeth and impacted teeth to jaw misalignment and bone loss in the jaw. Oral surgeons are also able to treat chronic diseases or conditions that derive from issues of the mouth.
