Oral Surgery

Our oral surgeons are highly trained in the interaction between oral health and systemic health, enabling them to recommend the best treatments for problems requiring surgery of the mouth or jaw.

Different Types of Oral Surgery Procedures

Oral surgeons and maxillofacial surgery can operate on teeth, jaws, or other facial structures. While the most common oral surgery is tooth extraction, some maxillofacial surgeons can also treat crack palate and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). These oral surgeons experience several years of specialized training that goes far.

Here are the following standard oral surgery procedures:

  • Tooth Extraction: In some cases, such as a tooth impaction or a severe infection, extraction may be the best option. Delaying treatment can result in permanent damage such as cysts or tumors. Common warning signs of an impacted tooth include:
    • Severe pain
    • Reoccurring swelling and tenderness
    • Bleeding gums
  • Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD): Sometimes caused by malformation of the jaw or traumatic injury, TMD symptoms include jaw clicking and the inability to open the jaw as widely as usual. If conservative treatments are ineffective, surgery may be the best option to reduce jaw soreness and improve function.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From an Oral Surgery?

Generally, an oral surgeon will ask that you take at least 48-72 hours to relax afterward so the treated area can solidify. After that, a patient should be able to return to regular physical activity. The soft tissue will usually heal completely in about 3-4 weeks.

Dental Oral Surgery

Choosing dental implant surgery is one of the most dependable and long-lasting methods to replace missing teeth. However, since this dental surgery involves inserting artificial teeth root into the jaw bone, it almost consistently causes discomfort. Therefore, before undergoing this dental surgery, a patient is nervous about the pain level they may experience later and how long it will last.

Whether you’ve experienced an injury or ailment requiring surgical repair, or you have a malformation needing functional or aesthetic reconstruction, our team will collaborate with you to create a surgical treatment plan that meets your needs.
