Why Choose an Oral Surgeon for Dental Implants

Do you want to replace your missing teeth with dental implants? Choosing the right specialist for your treatment is one of the most important steps! Out of all the dental specialties, oral and maxillofacial surgeons are the most qualified to complete your surgery. Here are 5 reasons why choosing an experienced oral surgeon for your dental implant treatment is a good idea:

  • Surgical Experience. Oral surgeons have completed the most education outside of dental school and achieved the highest level of surgical training out of all the dental specialists. They are often more qualified upon graduating as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon than many seasoned dentists are at replacing teeth with dental implants.
  • Anesthesia Licensing. Oral surgeons are the only dental specialists with the training and licensing to offer all forms of anesthesia. This includes nitrous oxide, oral sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia. Many times, oral surgeons have the equipment and surgical staff to offer office-based anesthesia services for their patients.
  • Medical Training. Oral surgeons have both dental and medical training achieved through the completion of one or more hospital-based residency programs. They have what it takes to properly address any dental or medical emergency that may arise as well as treat medically compromised patients.
  • Dental Knowledge. Based on their level of education and hands-on training alone, oral and maxillofacial surgeons have an incredibly far-reading knowledge base in dental surgeries, hard and soft tissue treatments, cosmetics, oral pathology, anesthesia, and reconstructive care for trauma patients. They are well-equipped to provide dental implant treatment for patients in any situation or with any compromising health issues.
  • Overall Expertise. Oral surgeons, out of all the dental professionals that offer dental implant treatment, have an overall significantly greater level of expertise and skill. This ensures that treatment goes smoothly even in complex cases, with minimal health risks and predictable, long-term results.
