Oral surgery. Those two words might strike fear in your heart even if you’ve never had a negative dental experience, but they shouldn’t ― not if you’re in the care of the friendly professionals at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Utah.

From the Routine to the Extreme
You might need the services of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for many reasons. By definition, oral and maxillofacial surgeons treat injuries, defects and diseases of the head, neck, jaw and general facial region.
An example of a common oral surgery procedure is wisdom tooth removal. If your family dentist concludes that removing your wisdom teeth will improve your dental health, he or she may refer you to an oral surgeon. Oral surgeons have years of training and certification beyond that of a general dentist, and they can provide a second opinion and carry out the procedure, if necessary.
Oral surgeons also can provide more complex care. If your regular dentist suspects you have a jaw malformation or a suspicious patch in your mouth that could signify the early stages of oral cancer, he or she may refer you to an oral surgeon for a definitive diagnosis.
You may need your jaw reshaped to correct a bad bite, or you may need a lump removed for further testing. In any case, an oral surgeon specializes in identifying the root cause of any dental issue and laying out a recommended plan of treatment.
