Why Was I referred to an Oral Surgeon?

If your dentist recommends a oral and maxillofacial surgeon, he’s talking about a specialty of dentistry that relates to your face and jaws. It’s a surgery that treats disease and injuries of the areas around your mouth.


Here at First Coast Oral and maxillofacial surgery we must complete extra training and education beyond what is normal for a general dentist. Like Dr. Massaro, some Oral Surgeons get a medical degree (MD) along with their oral surgery diplomas. They put in at least 4 years of training in a hospital-based surgical program alongside medical residents in many different specialties, including anesthesia. That includes various types of IV sedation, including "twilight sleep" and general anesthesia, where you're unconscious and can't feel any pain. It can also include local anesthesia, where only a small area of your body is numbed for your procedure.


An oral surgeon can help you out of several situations. If you have problems with your teeth or gums, talk with our oral surgeons at First Coast Oral and Maxillofacial, we can give you the relief you’re searching for!
