What is oral and maxillofacial surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery refers to treatments designed to repair and restore abnormalities and injuries to the teeth and jaw. Oral surgeons receive all the same training as general dentists and then complete an additional four to seven years of training to become professionally certified as oral surgeons. Oral surgery services range from wisdom tooth removal to dental implants to facial reconstruction and repair.
Do I need a referral from my dentist to visit an oral surgeon?
Although most cases are referred to oral surgeons from dentists and orthodontists, you are welcome to contact our office if you have questions.
What will my first visit involve?
Your first visit to our office will generally involve a comprehensive analysis and examination of your smile coupled with a consultation. If treatment is needed, we will visit with you about treatment options and build a customized plan to provide the care you need. We will speak with you about financing your treatment and make other plans regarding the location and date of the proposed surgery. Your consultation is the ideal time to ask all of your questions and to learn about your condition.
Do you accept insurance? What are my financial options?
We accept PPO insurance plans and are happy to answer your questions about your specific plan. We also accept CareCredit (a third-party medical payment resource) and look forward to helping you find a solution that works for your unique needs. Call us at Williams and Williams Facial and Oral Surgery today!
Should I have my wisdom teeth removed?
Wisdom teeth (also known as third molars) are removed when there is insufficient room for them or when there are problems as they erupt. Many patients opt to have them removed, and we can help you determine whether your smile can accommodate your wisdom teeth or not. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Craig and Dr. Todd Williams!
What do I do if I have a dental emergency?
If you have a dental emergency, please contact our team immediately and we are happy to accommodate your urgent needs during business hours. During non-business hours, seek appropriate medical attention as your needs necessitate.
