Frequently Asked Questions
About Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
An oral and maxillofacial surgeon is a specialist who is trained in treating a wide range of conditions related to the face, jaws, mouth, and teeth. They are highly trained professionals who have completed extensive education and training in both medicine and dentistry.
In addition to surgical procedures, oral and maxillofacial surgeons may also provide non-surgical treatments for conditions such as facial pain, snoring, and sleep apnea. They work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as dentists, orthodontists, and medical specialists, to provide comprehensive care for their patients.
Your Treatment & Recovery
Treatment can sometimes be done the same day, but for procedures more complicated than an extraction, a consultation is usually required before scheduling surgery.
Payment & Insurance
Before any procedure, the doctor will assess your requirements. We will confirm your insurance and review the cost estimation, and collect any copays, deductibles, or patient portions due at that time.
No, a referral is not mandatory. Nevertheless, if you have already received treatment from a general dentist for the same issue that you are scheduled for at our office, we would appreciate it if you could provide us with your patient notes or referral, if available.
