How is an Oral Surgeon Different from a Dentist?
In order to become an oral surgeon, one must complete an additional four to six years of training after completing dental school. Since oral surgeons have a more specialized knowledge base, general dentists will generally refer their patients to oral surgeons for implant placement, wisdom tooth extraction, and other procedures. Dr. Sheng Ji graduated from UCSF dental school and completed a six year residency training in oral and maxillofacial surgery, eventually earning his board certification with the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
When Do I Need an Oral Surgeon?
One of the most common reasons dentists refer patients to oral surgeons is for implant placement. Most general practices only restore dental implants, but an oral surgeon has the knowledge, experience, and skillset needed to ensure successful placement of the posts. You might also require an oral surgeon’s help if you need your wisdom teeth removed or if you require a complex treatment for an impacted canine, facial trauma, a misaligned jaw, or a disease that affects the head/neck region and oral cavity. Your dentist can help you figure out whether oral surgery is necessary during a consultation.
How Much Will It Cost to Have a Tooth Pulled?
The price for an extraction tends to vary based on each patient’s specific circumstances. You also need to take into account the type of tooth being removed as well as the type of extraction being performed. Wisdom teeth extractions tend to be more costly than normal extractions since surgery is normally required. The same goes for impacted canines and other teeth trapped beneath the gums. Be sure to check your insurance benefits to see what kind of coverage you can expect to receive for extraction.
Do Oral Surgeons Do Walk-In Appointments?
It’s generally better to schedule your appointment in advance. This helps ensure that we have plenty of time to give each patient the individualized attention they deserve. If you’re a new patient, you can set up an appointment by either calling our office or submitting a request online.
What If I Have a Dental Emergency?
For life-threatening injuries, such as unstoppable bleeding or any issue that’s making difficult to breathe, call 911 first. However, if you have a dental emergency that isn’t putting your life in immediate danger but nevertheless requires urgent attention, call our office as soon as possible. We can quickly schedule an appointment to provide immediate attention in the case of a broken or knocked-out tooth or a serious facial injury.
