There are situations where an Oral and Maxillofacial Specialist (commonly referred to as an "Oral Surgeon") is needed to perform difficult extractions and treat complex cysts or infections. We work closely with an oral surgeon who comes to our office to treat our patients, when we deem necessary. Typically, wisdom teeth that are problematic and are not fully erupted or oriented in a tilted position will be referred to our oral surgeon for treatment.
Nevertheless, you will have a comprehensive examination, and when necessary, an additional panoramic x-ray completed prior to being referred to our oral surgeon. During your exam with us, we will thoroughly discuss all your dental needs and answer any questions you may have.
