Whether you need wisdom teeth removed, or have a more serious issue with your jaw, an oral surgeon is one of your best options for anything related to your mouth, face, or even most of your skull.

Oral surgery procedures make a huge impact – for the better – on your oral health. However, the key to getting the most out of oral surgery is knowing what an oral surgeon does. You’ll also want to learn about when you’d need an oral surgeon. Let’s take a moment to answer those questions.

What oral surgeons do
An oral surgeon has a wide array of skills dedicated to helping patients treat, prevent, or repair serious problems. Some of the lesser-known procedures oral surgeons do include removing lesions, performing facial repair, cleft lip/palate repair, facial infections, and even sleep apnea.

There are a ton of different procedures oral surgeons have expertise in that benefit your life in ways that aren’t completely dental-related.

When to see one
Obviously, if you have serious tooth issues you’ll want to see an oral surgeon. Wisdom teeth are handled almost exclusively by oral surgeons. If any of the symptoms listed above apply to you, it’s a great idea to go ahead and get in touch with Dr. J. Reed Rayher at Union Square Oral Surgery & Dental Implant in San Francisco, California.
