Posted on 6/30/2016 by Alyssa O'Steen
A dentist consulting a patient about her upcoming oral surgery.Oral Surgeons are experts in performing dental surgery. Most dentists are aware of bits and pieces of portions of oral surgery, but only an oral surgeon is an expert on caring for your surgery needs, the right kind of anesthesia required, and how to handle other issues that can arise.

•  Oral Surgeons remove wisdom teeth. The removal of wisdom teeth is often a painful process, trust your procedure in the hands of someone who does this procedure all the time.
•  Some oral surgeries are covered by both your medical and your dental insurance. Some procedures cross the lines of no longer being considered dental and are considered medical, this may be helpful to a patient seeking attention, costs that their dental insurance won't cover may be covered by their medical insurance.
