Oral Surgery Q & A

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery refers to procedures that require surgical instruments to make incisions in the gums or jawbone. The skilled dentists at Cosmetic Dentistry Center use conservative treatments whenever possible, but some conditions require oral surgery. The team has extensive training and experience with surgical procedures that restore function to your teeth and gums and improve the look of your smile.

Which conditions can oral surgery treat?

You may need oral surgery if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Missing teeth
  • Impacted teeth
  • Infected teeth
  • Damaged teeth
  • Gum disease

If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, your dentist may recommend a surgical procedure in addition to dental braces to straighten and realign your teeth.

What types of oral surgery are available?

The exceptional team of professionals at Cosmetic Dentistry Center provides an array of oral surgery services, including:

  • Tooth extraction
  • Wisdom tooth removal
  • Dental implants
  • Jaw surgery

Depending on your condition, you may require more than one procedure. For example, you may need to have a tooth extracted before an implant can be installed.

What should I expect during my procedure?

The caring team performs oral surgeries in the office as an outpatient procedure. The amount of time needed for your surgery depends on your condition; for some conditions, more than one procedure is required to meet your needs.

The team at Cosmetic Dentistry Center is committed to your comfort during oral surgery. Your provider discusses options for anesthesia before your appointment, so you don’t have to worry about feeling distressed when it’s time for your procedure.

In the case of minor procedures, like single-tooth extractions, you may be able to drive yourself home after your appointment. You’ll need someone to help you get home after a more complicated procedure, and you might need some help for a few hours after your appointment.

Your provider makes sure you have all the information you need to take care of your mouth after oral surgery, including dietary recommendations and cleaning instructions. Be sure you follow these instructions carefully for optimal recovery from oral surgery.
