Types of oral surgery
Our clinic offers a variety of oral surgeries, including bone grafting. Oral surgery can be required for many reasons including accidents, dental implants, advanced tooth decay, nerve death in the tooth, abscess of tooth or gum tissue, impaction (particularly of wisdom teeth), insufficient room for permanent teeth to erupt, insufficient space for orthodontic appliances, alleviation of periodontal pockets and certain gum disease, crown lengthening, and cosmetic gum lifts to improve a smile.
What to Expect
Local anesthetic will be given prior to the procedure so that it will be pain free, and sedation is available. You may feel tugging, pulling or pressure during the treatment. After treatment, you will be given pain medication and instructions on how to care for the area to avoid infection or improper healing. You will usually visit the clinic for one or more follow up appointments to remove stitches and check healing.
Your mouth will function better and improve overall oral health. Depending on the type of oral surgery, you will be able to chew better, look better and feel more confident. It is important to maintain good oral hygiene and regular dental visits to keep your mouth in great condition.
