Two Unusual Reasons You May Need an Oral Surgeon's Help

Posted on 6/23/2018 by Alyssa O'Steen
Sleep Apnea DFW Oral Surgeons TX 75028-1795An oral surgeon's day is full of dealing with root canals, extractions and dental implants. These are important procedures, but always doing the same thing every day is sometimes boring.

Thankfully, these are not the only types of work an oral surgeon does.

There are some other procedures that are a little more unusual and offer a break in the routine work that an oral surgeon does.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea affects any people. It is not something to ignore. The dangers associated with sleep apnea include feeling tires and not able to concentrate, high blood pressure, heart disease and acid reflux. There are plenty of ways to treat sleep apnea that are non-invasive.

Oral surgeons can play a key role in diagnosing the condition and offering help with treatment. In addition to CPAP machines and mouth appliances, there are also surgical options for treating sleep apnea. The oral surgeon can provide information and help decide what the best course is to relieve the problems associated with sleep apnea.

Traumatic Injury

When oral surgeons face a person that has had a traumatic injury, the adrenaline starts pumping. These are the cases where an oral surgeon can provide a lot of help. Some of the traumatic injuries they face include intra oral lacerations, multiple teeth knocked out, broken jaws and broken facial bones.

While no one should have to deal with these types of injuries, they do happen. The oral surgeon can fix and rebuild the damage that occurs from a traumatic injury.

The role of an oral surgeon is to help people with their oral health. Their job description includes many things that people do not often think about. Oral surgeons prepare themselves for any type of case they may face.

While the uncommon cases do not happen often, that does not mean the oral surgeon is not ready to help.
