WHAT TREATMENTS CAN A Periodontist PROVIDE?

One interesting bit of knowledge is that an oral surgeon can provide all levels of anesthesiology and sedation—including general sedation. This is quite different than general dentists or even specialists like orthodontists. These highly specialized doctors are often on-call at a dental practice in the case of an emergency dental situation where anesthesia is required.

Outside of sedation, the treatments an oral surgeon provides includes both straightforward and complex oral surgeries. One of the most common procedures is tooth extractions. These often occur when a patient has his or her wisdom teeth removed, but they can also be completed when a patient has a damaged or decayed tooth.
