Oral Surgery Q&A

What is oral surgery?

Whether improving the appearance of a smile or addressing larger underlying problems with your bite, oral surgery is an indispensable part of modern dentistry. Oral surgery is a general term that refers to a wide range of dental surgeries. Each surgery is designed to address a different issue or achieve a different outcome. 

When it’s time to get oral surgery, it’s helpful to know that you have a dentist you can trust. The team at SPA Dental Group has a highly trained in-house oral surgeon that carries out all oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures, helping to provide peace of mind knowing that you will receive the best care possible. 

What are common oral surgeries?

There are many kinds of oral surgery. Common types of oral surgery include:

Tooth extraction

There are many types of tooth extraction procedures. Tooth extraction can serve to reduce tooth crowding, resolve disease, or treat facial trauma. The most well-known form of tooth extraction is wisdom tooth removal. Surgical techniques are necessary during more complex tooth removal procedures. 

Maxillofacial surgeries

Maxillofacial surgeries are a more complex form of oral surgery. Common maxillofacial surgeries include corrective jaw surgery, bone augmentation, maxillofacial dental implants, and dentoalveolar surgery. 

What should I expect at my appointment?

Since oral surgery covers such a wide range of procedures, from minor to more intensive, your experience varies depending on the type of surgery you have. During the procedure, local anesthesia may be used to ensure your comfort and general sedation may be used during more in-depth operations. 

SPA Dental Group performs oral surgeries in the convenience of their office. Following surgery, you can return home, although you may need to limit certain activities such as eating or drinking right after surgery. 

The team at SPA Dental Group is dedicated to ensuring that their patients are comfortable and well-informed throughout the process.
