Dental surgery is a branch of dentistry that involves surgical procedures aimed at diagnosing, treating, and correcting complex oral health issues. Dental surgeons are highly skilled professionals who undergo extensive training and possess specialized knowledge to perform these procedures. We understand that each patient is unique. Our surgeons take the time to assess individual needs, explain treatment options, and develop personalized surgical plans to achieve optimal results.
Dental surgery involves surgical procedures performed by oral surgeons to address various oral health conditions. It may be necessary for issues such as impacted wisdom teeth, severe tooth decay, corrective jaw surgery, dental implant placement, and other complex oral and maxillofacial conditions.
Your dentist may recommend dental surgery based on a thorough examination and assessment of your oral health. Common indicators include impacted wisdom teeth, extensive tooth damage, jaw misalignment, the need for dental implants, or the presence of oral pathology. Consult with our oral surgeons for a comprehensive evaluation.
Recovery times vary depending on the type of dental surgery performed. Simple procedures like tooth extractions may require a few days of recovery, while more complex surgeries such as jaw realignment or dental implant placement may take several weeks.
Like any surgical procedure, dental surgery involves some level of risk. However, our experienced oral surgeons take all necessary precautions to minimize risks and ensure patient safety. Before any surgery, our team will discuss potential risks and complications, as well as the steps taken to mitigate them.
Preparation for dental surgery may include fasting before the procedure, discussing medical history and medications with your oral surgeon, and arranging for someone to accompany you to and from the appointment. Specific preparation instructions will be provided during your pre-surgical consultation.
In most cases, patients are advised not to drive immediately after dental surgery, especially if sedation or anesthesia was used during the procedure. Arrange for a responsible adult to accompany you and drive you home after the surgery.
