Here are some of the reasons why someone would want to make use of an oral surgeon when it comes to having some oral pain and needing to have it taken care of.
Often this is the number one reason for seeing an oral surgeon. When the wisdom teeth in the mouth are impacted into the gum line, then they have to be surgically removed from the inside of the mouth. This can be done when you use an oral surgeon that can safely remove them.
OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA (OSA)
When the person suffers from obstructive sleep apnea, they will speak with an oral surgeon that is able to help them with a mouthpiece that is customized and specially fitted to their face. This helps the person remove the obstruction that would otherwise be dangerous to them.
