Oral Surgery Q&A
What is oral surgery?
Oral surgery at Ideal Dental of Tucson includes any surgical procedure involving your teeth, gums, tongue, or mouth. The experienced dental team offers the following types of oral surgery:
- Wisdom tooth extraction
- Permanent or baby tooth extraction
- Dental implant placement
- Soft tissue repair or grafting
- Emergency dental surgery
- Smile makeovers
You might be a good candidate for oral surgery if you experience tooth crowding, severely decayed or damaged teeth, impacted wisdom teeth, permanent tooth loss, knocked out permanent teeth, or baby teeth that don’t fall out on their own.
Am I a good candidate for oral surgery?
To find out if oral surgery is right for you, the team at Ideal Dental of Tucson reviews your oral health history and assesses your teeth and gums. They take dental X-rays and discuss your desired outcome. You have a voice in your oral health care.
What happens during oral surgery?
When you arrive at Ideal Dental of Tucson for oral surgery, friendly staff members greet you. They use local anesthesia to numb the treatment area plus a sedative to relax you and make you feel comfortable.
Dr. Williams and his team often make tiny incisions to complete oral surgery and remove a tooth, repair soft tissue, or implant artificial tooth roots to support dental implants. They close any incisions after surgery before taking you to a recovery area.
What should I expect after the procedure?
After oral surgery at Ideal Dental of Tucson, have a friend or family member drive you home. Get plenty of rest, take medications as prescribed, ice the treatment area, and follow a special soft foods diet if Dr. Williams recommends it. Don’t drink through a straw after tooth extraction, as this can loosen blood clots. Attend follow-up appointments to ensure healing goes well.
Some oral surgeries require additional treatments after your mouth heals. For example, after dental implant placement you must return to Ideal Dental of Tucson to receive crowns, bridges, or dentures. You might be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment after oral surgery. Dr. Williams personalizes each treatment to perfect your beautiful smile.
Don’t live with crowded, missing, or severely decayed teeth when oral surgery can give you the aesthetically pleasing smile you long for. Schedule a consultation with Ideal Dental of Tucson over the phone or online today.
