How is an Oral Surgeon Different From a Dentist?
Many dental issues require treatments that are categorized as oral surgery. These procedures include tooth extractions, dental implants, impacted wisdom teeth, and the detection and treatment of some oral diseases. Our oral surgeons in Reno are experts in tooth extractions, in particular, and can perform this procedure in our Reno offices.
Some more advanced issues or procedures that go beyond just the teeth, such as corrective jaw surgery, cleft palate correction and complex treatments to the gums, can only be performed by specialists in those fields of oral and maxillofacial surgery.

One of the most common procedures that fall in the category of oral surgery is tooth extractions or complete removal of a tooth from the dental socket. Patients may need a tooth extracted for several reasons including impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth, a decayed or infected tooth, root fracture, reduction of crowding in the mouth or preparation for orthodontic treatment. Our expert oral surgeon is a trained specialist performing tooth extractions for our patients.
More often than not, a patient will experience mild to severe toothaches when a tooth has become infected or damaged to a point where it’s no longer salvageable. This pain is sometimes felt in the jaw, ears, and face as well. Although there are several reasons an individual may experience a toothache, it’s always best to have your dentist evaluate the tooth. If there is extreme tooth decay or dental trauma present, the tooth will need to be extracted to prevent further damage to the mouth or spreading of infection, if present.
In order for a patient to receive the best dental care possible, sedation is necessary in some cases to ensure the patient remains calm and comfortable. Knowing the patient is not experiencing pain or anxiety during a dental procedure also allows the oral surgeon to work more efficiently and effectively. Absolute Dental offers sedation to patients undergoing a tooth extraction to provide increased comfort to the patient and easier functionality to the oral surgeon. Your oral surgeon will share all the sedation options available to you for a tooth extraction prior to the procedure.
