Why Choose an Oral Surgeon?
Westlake Village, CA

When you are in need of regular dental cleanings and exams, you go to your general dentist. You might even call them when you are suffering from an issue like a toothache. However, when you are faced with an issue that requires surgery, you need someone with the experience and expertise to restore the health of your mouth. When you need oral surgery, Westlake Oral and Plastic Surgery is here to help.

Oral Surgeons Vs. a Regular Dentist

All dentists go to dental school for four years. After those four years, dentists can practice general dentistry. For those who wish to work in a specialty, such as oral and maxillofacial surgery, additional education and training is required. To become an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, an additional four to six years is necessary. During this time, we receive extensive training and an in-depth education that allows us to use the most up to date techniques and technologies to provide you with the best oral healthcare possible.

Procedures an Oral Surgeon Can Perform

As oral surgeons, we are trained to deal with some different facial issues, including such things as:
•  Administering anesthesia.
•  Extracting wisdom teeth or other teeth that are severely damaged.
•  Treating facial trauma. We can repair soft tissue lacerations, set a fractured jaw, reconnect damaged nerves and more.
•  Placing dental implants.
•  Alleviating the pain associated with temporomandibular joint disorder or TMD.
•  Evaluating pathological issues including cysts and tumors.
•  Performing orthognathic, or corrective jaw, surgery.
•  Performing reconstructive or cosmetic surgery.
•  Correcting issues that cause obstructive sleep apnea. There are a few different ways in which this might be done, including removing excess tissues from the mouth or moving the jaw forward to prevent the tissue from sliding backward.

Dedicated Facilities for Your Care

While you can go to your general dentist when you are experiencing dental issues, we have dedicated facilities designed to help you get the oral surgical treatments you need. Here, you can rest easy knowing that you are receiving treatment with the latest tools and technologies and that we are completely up to date with the latest techniques. Having an oral surgeon on your team for oral surgical needs can help you to rest easy knowing that you are on the best hand.

Experience With Aesthesia

As oral surgeons, we are highly experienced in the use of sedation and anesthesia. Many other dental offices are ill-equipped to administer any type of sedation other than nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. When it comes to your oral surgery needs, it is important that you remain comfortable and that you remain calm. We are highly experienced with all types of sedation, including general anesthesia. This ensures that you can get your necessary procedures with as little stress, anxiety, and discomfort as possible.

Exceptional Experience

Oral surgery is what we do. We perform some different surgical procedures on a daily basis. As a result, we have become highly experienced in these procedures. We can determine the best surgical treatments to meet your unique needs. Because we are experienced, you can rest easy knowing that we will make sure that your procedure is done as smoothly as possible and that we can help you achieve the best results for your situation.
