Why Choose an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMSs) are trained in assessing their patient’s unique needs and working out an appropriate treatment plan. Whether they are replacing a single tooth or a mouthful of teeth, OMSs can perform dental implant surgery comfortably in a single visit. They are the only dental specialists trained to obtain and place bone grafts in areas where little or no bone exists. Bone grafts are also used to treat bone loss resulting from traumatic injuries, tumor surgery or congenital defects.
