What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is done to improve the health and look of your smile. Surgery can involve dental implants, extractions, soft tissue grafting and bone grafting. Prior to any surgery being done, you’ll come in for a consultation appointment and exam. This helps us to determine if and when you’d benefit from oral surgery.
Why is Oral Surgery needed?
Oral surgery is normally necessary if there is a problem concerning your dental health or you’re looking to enhance your smile. With an exam, consultation and series of images, we’ll determine if you need oral surgery and if so, what type is right for you. Some of the most common types of oral surgery include:
• Dental Implants
• Soft Tissue Grafting
• Bone Grafting
• Jaw (TMJ) Surgery
What makes you a good candidate for Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery can sometimes be done under local anesthetic, but is often performed with general anesthesia. Because of this, you must be healthy enough to undergo general anesthesia to have the work done. We will conduct a health and medical review prior to performing any type of surgery. We consult with you before the surgery to ensure it’s the right option for you and the best way to improve your oral health using these treatment methods.
What can be expected with routine Oral Surgery?
Prior to any oral surgery being done, you’ll come into our office for an exam, consultation and to have x-rays and other images taken. We will use this information to create a treatment plan that is specific to your needs. We will discuss sedation options during your consultation so that you can be as comfortable as possible while in our office. We will then schedule you to come in and have the surgery done when it is most convenient for you. Our goal is to provide our patients with quality surgical care in a comfortable, warm and state-of-the-art environment.
