Compassionate Specialty Care from Our Walla Walla Dental Team
There are many reasons why Dr. Gustavsen may refer patients to a local Walla Walla oral surgeon. Oral surgeons – also known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons – have advanced training and focus on treating clinical issues related to the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, and jaws.
When Should You Consult an Oral Surgeon?
Some common reasons that our dental team will coordinate your care with an oral surgeon include:
- Restore jaw function to improve eating, speaking, or breathing
- Create space for incoming teeth
- Improve facial appearance
- Help facilitate any necessary dental or orthodontic treatment
- Wisdom teeth extractions
If your dental treatment requires the expertise of a Walla Walla oral surgeon, Dr. Gustavsen will oversee any necessary pre- and post-operative dental care required.
