How is an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon different from a Dental Surgeon?
The term "Dental Surgeon" is synonymous with a General Dentist. Dental Surgeons or General Dentists are dental professionals that are proficient in providing routine dental care. This includes periodontal maintenance, restoration of dental decay, root canal treatment and provision of crowns, bridges and dentures.
An Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon (OMFS), or more commonly, an Oral Surgeon, is a specialist who treats a wide spectrum of diseases, injuries, defects and aesthetic concerns as it pertains to the mouth, teeth, jaws and face.
OMFS are trained to care for patients who experience such conditions as problematic wisdom teeth, facial pain, and misaligned jaws. They treat accident victims suffering from facial injuries, offer reconstructive and dental implant surgery, and care for patients with tumors, cysts, and developmental craniofacial abnormalities of the jaws/face. In addition, they are highly trained in the delivery of IV anesthesia.
OMFS receive a minimum of four years of post-doctoral specialty training that includes rotations in general surgery, plastic surgery, emergency medicine and anesthesia.
Does OHIP pay for my procedure?
OHIP does not pay for in-office procedures.
How do I find out if my insurance pays for my procedure?
Our staff can provide a predetermination for your procedure and electronically submit to your insurance company to help you determine how much insurance coverage you have.
Will my surgery be done in the hospital or in the office?
Virtually all surgical procedures are done in the office with the exception of orthognathic surgery which involves surgical repositioning of the upper and lower jaws.
Do I have to be referred by a dentist or can I make an appointment directly with your office?
You do not have to be referred by your dentist. We will be happy to schedule a consultation appointment to discuss your concern.
