At Dentistry on Main, we are a highly trained team of experienced professionals with state-of-the-art equipment that offers oral surgery as one of our many services.
Peak oral and dental health requires making sure that your teeth are not just healthy but that the surrounding supporting structures in and around the mouth are functioning correctly. Maxillofacial Surgery, commonly known as oral surgery, focuses on a multitude of defects, injuries and diseases. It also focuses on defects in the jaw, head, neck, face, and the hard and soft and hard tissues of the mouth.
Oral surgery will often be combined with other treatments like dental implants, periodontal disease and orthodontics. While most people are familiar with every-day procedures like wisdom teeth extraction, you may not be as aware of all the treatments that fall under the banner of oral surgery.
Why Would I Need Oral Surgery
Oral surgery covers a wide variety of dental techniques and treatments. They are all designed to address different patient needs to restore your smile to its peak health. The dentist may suggest oral surgery if you are experiencing any of these common dental issues:
Periodontal Disease: When bacteria becomes deeply embedded in the gum tissue, sometimes the only way to remove it is with surgical treatments. Laser surgery may also be used in some cases
Root Canal Damage or Infection: Root canal therapy will remove the infected inner chamber (or pulp) of the tooth to preserve the tooth’s structure and functionality.
Impacted Wisdom Teeth: If your wisdom teeth are at risk of causing overcrowding or misalignment, they can pose a significant risk for infection and a great deal of pain.
Damaged or Infected Teeth: In instances of extensive tooth damage, sometimes the only option is extraction. It can prevent the infection from spreading to the surrounding teeth and causing further damage and pain.
Afraid Of Oral Surgery? Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Be
Most people experience fear at the thought of oral surgery. However, the reality is that most oral surgery procedures are gentle and performed using the most modern technology making your treatments comfortable, safe and successful. For most people, one simple dental surgery will have life-changing outcomes.
What should I Expect If I Have Oral Surgery?
Your dentist will provide you with information about exactly what you need to do prior to surgery. The dentist will also provide aftercare instructions and the medications you may need to take. Upon entering the procedure room, the dentist will explain the next steps and will offer you pain medication if required.
It is commonly suggested to take a day or two off from work and to avoid strenuous exercise. You may also be required to take antibiotics and pain medicines. It may also be necessary for you to avoid certain foods and drinks.
How Much Does Oral Surgery Cost?
The cost of oral surgery will always depend on the type of treatment or procedures you you are having. The complexity of your individual case is also a factor. Take some time to discuss your oral surgery and its costs with the dentist.
