The skill of an Oral Surgeon can greatly affect your comfort during and following oral surgery. It can also affect your post-operative aesthetic result. Our Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery team includes 16 cosmetic dentists, specialists (including two Oral Surgeons) and lab ceramists in one high-end midtown Manhattan office. In addition an MD-anesthesiologist offers several options for dental sedation. Nitrous oxide laughing gas is also available. The Oral Surgeons in our New York office have a lot of experience. In addition they possess vastly greater skills than general dentists who perform oral surgery. Therefore please visit us for all your tooth extraction oral surgery and dental implant needs.
Our oral surgeons will know when it is appropriate to extract and place same day dental implants. We usually extract all four wisdom teeth at one time. This is more convenient for the patient. Our Oral Surgeons will also know when to take a biopsy of unknown soft tissue. This is important for long term health.
The dental specialty known as Oral Surgery includes Teeth extractions. The teeth most frequently extracted are the wisdom teeth. In addition oral surgery involves dental implant placement. It also involves the diagnosis and removal of oral pathology (disease). Oral surgery also includes the realignment of the facial bones and TMJ treatment. An Oral Surgeon is the specialist who usually performs these procedures. They usually have an additional three to six more years of education than a general dentist.
Our extraction oral surgery patients also have access to top medical care
Moreover our patients have access to our affiliated team of 12 medical doctors in our building. This is because of the known relationship between dental disease and other medical diseases like heart disease and diabetes. We hope to improve your overall health one step at a time.
Oral surgeons perform oral surgery in our practice, not general dentists
Patients are generally better off being treated by specialists. They should see Oral Surgeons for oral surgery. General dentists may be comfortable extracting a tooth but they may not have the knowledge or skills to properly clean out the surrounding infection. Leaving infected granulation tissue in a tooth socket after extraction can result in failure of a dental implant placed there. Similarly, a general dentist may not know when a bone graft is cosmetically needed after tooth extraction. A general dentist may not know which bone graft material is best for a given situation and/or how to properly place it. These are important reasons why you should consider us for any type of extraction oral surgery.
Our oral surgeons have special skills to diagnose and treat oral pathology
There are many different types of oral pathology that need proper diagnosis and treatment. For example, head and neck cancer accounts for 7% of all cancer. Who is diagnosing your oral pathology and what is their level of training beyond their basic degree in dentistry? Similarly, any general dentist can take an impression of teeth and deliver a piece of plastic they call a bite guard or TMJ appliance. Did they first take an x-ray of the TM (temporomandibular) Joint as part of the diagnosis?
