What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing and treating complex conditions of the mouth, jaw, and facial structures. It encompasses a wide range of surgical procedures designed to address issues that go beyond general dental care.

Oral surgeons, also known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons, are dental specialists who undergo extensive additional training after dental school. This training equips them to perform intricate procedures involving both hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity and surrounding areas.

A Variety of Oral Surgery Treatments

Tooth extractions are one of the most common types of oral surgery procedures. Tooth decay, advanced gum disease, impacted teeth or overcrowded teeth, and tooth breakage are just a few problems that might cause tooth removal to be necessary. Generally a simple procedure, tooth extraction can be completed right in the dentist’s office. 

During this procedure, your oral surgeon gently pulls your tooth, being careful not to disturb healthy bone or gum tissue. Another form of tooth extraction, wisdom teeth removal, is often more complex and can take up to a few hours to complete.

Bone grafting is a specialized oral surgery treatment that involves replacing bone levels in the jaw. Usually due to missing teeth, bone loss is ongoing and needs to be treated to support a denture or dental implants. A bone grafting procedure involves taking bone from the patient or a donor source and placing it where the bone has degraded. The area heals for a few months as the bone grafting material and jawbone integrate.

Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth and are made up of three parts — the post, abutment, and restoration. Dental implant posts are surgically inserted into the jawbone to anchor a new tooth or set of teeth. Modern dental implant surgery is precise, especially when CT-guided technology is used. A temporary restoration may also be available for qualifying patients!

Frequently Asked Questions

While some post-operative soreness is normal, your dentist will provide pain management options and detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. There are also anesthetic methods that may be used during your operation to ensure minimal discomfort.

Not all oral surgeries require sedation. We offer various sedation options, from local anesthesia to general anesthesia, depending on the complexity of the procedure and patient preference. We’ll discuss the best option for you during your consultation.

Recovery time varies depending on the procedure and individual healing factors. Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days to a week, though complete healing may take longer for more complex surgeries.

This depends on the type of surgery and your recovery. Many patients can return to work or school within two to three days, but personalized advice will be provided based on your specific case.

Many dental insurance plans cover oral surgery, especially when it’s medically necessary. Check with your insurance provider. Dental staff can help you understand your coverage or financing options if they’re available to you.

Detailed pre-operative instructions will be provided, which may include fasting before the procedure, arranging transportation, and preparing your home for recovery. Following these instructions closely helps ensure a successful surgery and recovery.
