Experienced Oral Surgeons
What is Oral Surgery?
Our oral surgery experts in Whittier, CA have years of experience with all types of procedures.
Some of these procedures are routine and most people will go through them at some point, such as wisdom teeth removal. Other procedures are more complex and can be useful for restoring parts of the mouth that have been damaged or weakened, such as bone grafts. Some oral surgical procedures, like a biopsy, are used for diagnosing cancers of the mouth. Our oral surgeons take great care to decide the best possible interventions, using minimally invasive procedures. At Whittier Dental Specialists Center, our patient’s health and safety is our top priority, and we have the skill and technology to give them the best treatment possible.
What Training is Required for Oral Surgeons?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons address issues affecting the teeth and gums, but also work with surrounding structures, including the jaws, forehead, cheekbones, skull, and more. Diagnosing conditions and providing treatment to such important, complex areas requires many years of training and experience. Oral surgeons first must graduate dental school and then complete 4 to 6 years of specialized training. Oral surgeons are trained to address functional as well as aesthetic issues that are making it difficult for you to eat or chew, or issues that are affecting your appearance. With years of experience and education, oral surgeons have the skills necessary to diagnose and resolve many different types of conditions.
Our Oral Surgery Services
Oral surgeries include routine procedures like wisdom teeth removal, as well as much more complex procedures, such as a frenectomy or alveoloplasty.
Oral surgical procedures can help to restructure or strengthen parts of the jaw or any nearby structures. Sometimes, these procedures can address problems with teeth overcrowding, or remove teeth that have been damaged. Other times, oral surgery procedures are necessary to replace damaged teeth, repair the shape or function of the jaw, or address other issues.
