Top 5 Reasons Why A Wisdom Teeth Dentist Should Remove Your Wisdom Teeth

It’s time to get your wisdom teeth removed?

You were just informed by your Dentist or Orthodontist that you need to have your wisdom teeth removed. You head home and start to do some research or you may have received a referral card to an Oral Surgeon. In this article, we are going to discuss your options and why choosing a Dentist may be a better option than an Oral Surgeon.

Trained Wisdom Teeth Dentist vs Oral Surgeon

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

An oral surgeon does a lot more than wisdom teeth. They are also called Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. They are trained to handle a wide variety of conditions and injuries that affect the head, neck, mouth, jaw, and face. 

  • Misaligned jaws
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Oral reconstructive surgery
  • Cancers of the head and neck
  • Dental implants

After graduating from dental school, maxillofacial surgeons then complete:

1. A four- to six-year residency period in which the dentist studies surgery specifically. The six-year potential period includes spending an additional two years to receive a medical degree in addition to their dental degree.

2. An exam to become certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.

If the surgeon wants to specialize, they can then go on to complete a two-year fellowship and exam in cosmetic facial surgery, head and neck cancer, craniofacial surgery and pediatrics, or craniomaxillofacial trauma.

Dentist Trained in Wisdom Teeth

A Standard dentist can also pull wisdom teeth which some of them do. They have graduated from Dental school where they received the necessary training.

But there is a difference between a Standard and a Dentist whose only focus is on Wisdom Teeth. They have had additional education and training. Plus their experience is what can make all the difference. When your only mission is to pull out Wisdom Teeth, you get really good at it.

Both an Oral Surgeon and a Trained Dentist use the same techniques.

Why go to a Trained Wisdom Teeth Dentist?

1. Price is one of the biggest differences between an Oral Surgeon and a Wisdom Teeth Trained Dentist. It could cost 3 to 4 times more money when you go to an oral surgeon. Do you get 3 to 4 times the results? No.

2. A Trained Dentist focused on wisdom teeth extractions, a procedure they do routinely, thus giving them a greater level of expertise. There are some Wisdom Teeth Dentists that are performing 30 procedures a day.

3. They have completed formal training

4. With any surgery, there are certain risks of complications. If you are having a high level of anxiety about having your wisdom teeth removed, you’ll feel reassured to know that a Trained Dentist and a trained Nurse Anesthetist is watching you the whole time.

5. The All Out Wisdom experience. Getting your wisdom teeth out is not fun. It cost money and is not something that people like to do. Our goal is to help make the experience less painful and a little more enjoyable. We do special things like PRF treatment to help speed up your recovery.
