What’s the difference between an oral surgeon and a dentist? While they are similar, your children will generally visit a dentist before seeing an oral surgeon.
Every child should visit the dentist every six months. Doing so will help identify any serious mouth or teeth problems that will require an oral surgeon.
To answer this question, you need to know more about what oral surgeons do. Oral surgeons are specialists who usually spend an extra four to eight years in dental school.
Usually, dentists will refer patients to oral surgeons when necessary dental work is outside their normal practice. Oral surgeons (also known as maxillofacial surgeons) specialize in dental implants, jaw joint disorders, facial pain, and surgery like wisdom teeth removal.
While general dentists can perform oral surgeries, general dentistry duties more commonly include:
Oral surgery is usually done in one day with local numbing. Whether you visit the dentist or oral surgeon, it’s important to ask questions and follow the advice of dental professionals. Good oral hygiene is always important, before and after surgery.
