Dentist Vs. Oral Surgeon— What’s the Difference?

If you’re going to a dental professional at least twice a year for regular cleanings, then you are most definitely seeing a dentist. A dentist will advise you in general dental health care and maintenance, including teeth cleanings, fluoride treatments, cavity fillings and root canals. If there is a dental concern that is beyond their expertise, then they will recommend that you see an oral surgeon. Oral surgeons are knowledgeable in the surgical care of teeth, jaws and facial bones.
