Do I Need an Oral Surgeon?

There are several instances that may require the expertise of an oral surgeon over a general dentist, such as:

  • Maxillofacial Trauma: Facial injuries that affect the skin and bones of the face. They can be the result of auto accidents, falls, or sports injuries.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Lacerations to the face or mouth often require suturing to repair them. The facial nerves, salivary glands, salivary ducts, and aesthetics must all be considered while treating the injury.
  • Bone Injuries: Fractures to the facial bones are treated differently depending on the severity of the break, as well as the age and health of the patient. Since a cast cannot be placed on the face, other techniques are used to stabilize the bones, such as wiring the jaws together.
  • Injuries to Teeth and Oral Structures: Injuries to the teeth, gums, and other oral structures are common. They can range from a single knocked out tooth to significant missing teeth. Dr. Wendling evaluates the extent of the damage to create a treatment plan to restore your oral health, function, and appearance, such as placing dental implants.
