Can My Dentist Perform Oral Surgery?
Whether it is convenience, comfort or another reason, it’s common for patients to want their general dentist handling any oral surgeries that may arise. General dentists can and will carry out procedures such as root canals, tooth extractions and dental implants, if possible, but will let you know when your oral treatment needs fall outside of their capabilities and expertise.
Our general dentists and oral surgeons in Long Beach work in tandem to provide you with a complete treatment plan you’ll be satisfied with.
What Should I Expect at My Oral Surgery Consultation?
Before any surgery, it is important that oral surgeons take the time to discuss your medical history. We want to know the medications you’re currently taking, any allergies you may have and any prior surgeries that may impact your upcoming surgery. With that information, an evaluation, diagnosis and treatment plan will be created for you.
