Who is a candidate for Oral Surgery?
With the help of an examination, we can determine if you may need oral surgery. X-rays allow us to get a better view of your dental health and whether or not surgery is needed. If you need oral surgery of any kind, it is important to make time to come in for the procedure. We work to ensure that your time in our office is as calm and comfortable as possible regardless of the procedure that’s being done.
What happens during Oral Surgery?
The first step of any oral surgery is to consult with you and determine if surgery is necessary. We go over all of your options prior to having the procedure done. We will even discuss sedation options so that you can relax fully while the work is being done. Surgery is safe for most patients, and we’ll go over your health and medical history before any type of procedure is started. We then schedule you to come into the office and perform the surgery needed at your own convenience. You will be given aftercare instructions as well as prescriptions for any necessary medication or rinses before leaving the office and going home.
