We are Oral Surgery Experts
What is Oral Surgery?
There are many types of oral surgery.
Some you are probably familiar with, such as wisdom tooth extraction. Other types of oral surgery are more complex and less common, such as a frenectomy or alveoloplasty. The need for oral surgery can arise from regular tooth growth and development, as in the case of wisdom teeth, or it may arise from diseases, injuries, or decay. Our experienced oral surgeons in the Larchmont Village area of Los Angeles, CA perform a wide array of surgeries with precision and care.
What Training is Required for Oral Surgeons?
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons do not only deal with issues concerning teeth and gums. These specialists also diagnose and treat issues affecting the jaws, forehead, cheekbones, skull, and other areas around the mouth and face. This requires years of training and education, including dental school and 4 to 6 years of training after dental school. 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 issues quickly.
Our Oral Surgery Services
Tooth extraction is the most common oral surgery, though there are many other types as well.
You may need a tooth extraction to remove wisdom teeth that do not have space in your mouth, or you may need a tooth extraction to help make your teeth straight or comfortable. If your teeth or jaw bone have been damaged in an accident, oral surgery can also help to restore the damage.
