What’s the difference between an oral surgeon and a dentist? While they are similar, usually, dentists will refer patients to oral surgeons when other necessary dental work is outside their normal practice.

Some other surgeries performed by oral surgeons include: Simple tooth removals, complex tooth removals that include bone, impacted tooth removal, soft tissue removal, implant alignment and removal of tumors.

From their in-depth surgical training background, oral surgeons are also exposed to a wide range of complications that may arise from performing the various dental surgical procedures.  While a general dentist may feel comfortable performing a dental surgery procedure on you, the same dentist may not feel comfortable managing what complications may arise from that procedure.  An oral surgeon will often, if not always, be able to manage the complications that arise from a surgery he or she performs.

What Do General Dentists Do?

While general dentists can perform oral surgeries, their more common duties are basic dental exams and X-rays, fillings, crowns, sealants, root canals, bridges and gum care.

General dentists are the “family practitioners” of the mouth.  Licensed dentists can choose to perform any dental procedure with which they are comfortable in. But some areas of dental practice are complicated  and it is hard for general dentist to continue feeling competent with all of these procedures because they may have only limited exposure in their dental schooling. Good dentists will diagnose and treat only the conditions with which they feel comfortable and will refer you to a specialist for anything further.

Why your dentist recommend you to see a oral surgeon? Chances are your general dentist has referred you to an oral surgeon because he or she has determined that an oral surgeon’s level of expertise will improve your chances for having a proper evaluation and a better outcome with the procedure you’ve been advised to undergo.   By visiting an oral surgeon, such as Dr Alex Chee, Dr Alfred Cheng or Dr Henry Wong, you are choosing to see someone who has undergone specialty training, who has years of experience performing the procedure you need and who has exposure to the treatment of complications.
