What Makes an Oral Surgeon So Good at Tooth Extraction?


Posted on 4/13/2018 by Vladana Babcic Tal DMD
Tooth Extraction Cameo Dental Specialists IL 60305Oral surgeons are often referred when a person needs a tooth extraction that is considered more difficult than a standard extraction. When this is the case, they are able to go in and remove the tooth that might be impacted or damaged.

Oral surgeons are more experienced in removing these types of teeth and have more tools at their disposal to perform the extraction to minimize risk and complications, but also promote faster healing.

Why a Tooth Extraction Should Be Done by an Oral Surgeon

If you have an impacted or damaged tooth, an oral surgeon will be able to open up your gums and easily remove all of the various pieces of the damaged tooth. They make sure the entire crevice is entire cleaned out and that your gums are properly stitched closed.

Experience plays a large part in why you should consider an oral surgeon for even a routine tooth extraction. Oral surgeons remove thousands of teeth during their residency and as such, perform far more extractions than a typical dentist.

This gives the time to perfect their technique and learn to have a gentler touch when compared to a standard dentist.

An oral surgeon is also better equipped to handle any complications that may arise. For example, if a tooth fractures or shatters partway through the extraction, or part of the bone or surround tissue needs to be removed to finish the extraction, an oral surgeon will be able to do so easily.

A dentist may not be able to complete the extraction and would have to halt the procedure or be forced to finish it, providing less than the desired results.

If you are nervous about your procedure and want sedation, an oral surgeon is the way to go. Our oral surgeons are licensed for IV sedation and general anesthesia. They are also certified advanced cardiac life support and basic life support.

Granted, these certifications are rarely ever called on to be used, but isn't it better to have someone on hand to take care of you, if you ever need it?
