|Not all dentists are the same. Just like any other medical professional, some dentists specialize in different areas while some dentists handle less specific fields. General dentists are not specialists, but they are like seeing your family doctor.
They can handle many things and have undergone extensive training, but they may not always be the best choice for some dental procedures. This is why we suggest seeing our specialist when you need your wisdom teeth pulled instead of a general dentist.
General dentists go to school and get a degree in dentistry. They spend time training in a variety of different fields. Most general dentists are knowledgeable in many fields, but not an expert in any one area. General dentist can handle many of the oral health issues that people face, but they often lack some of the specialized training to handle other problems. A general dentist can typically handle issues such as checkups, cleaning and cavities. For more serious issues such as extracting your wisdom teeth, the general dentist may not offer the best choice.
What Makes Us The Right Choice?
If a general dentist is not the right choice for extracting wisdom teeth, what makes us the right choice. This type of procedure can cause a lot of pain. Most people are fearful of getting their wisdom teeth pulled because of the stories they hear. The only way to overcome that fear is to do everything right.
It starts with the use of sedation dentistry. This helps a person relax and offers us the ability to sedate the patient during the procedure.
The other important part is the skill that comes from performing this procedure over and over. The experience we offer allows us to extract the wisdom teeth in the best possible way.
