Rely on Our Skills & Experience for Your Dental Surgery

Although there are many types of oral surgery, perhaps the most common one is tooth extraction. If you have an aching tooth and we’re not able to save it with a tooth filling, crown, or root canal treatment, then we’ll recommend removing it. Leaving a diseased or damaged tooth in place can jeopardize the health of your other teeth and gums. Removal is necessary to prevent further pain and more extensive dental work later on.

Before any work is done, your dentist will make sure the area is completely numb. We don’t want you feeling any discomfort during your procedure. When you’re sufficiently numb, we’ll gently remove the tooth to alleviate your toothache and prevent further problems.

Replace Your Missing Tooth for the Best Results

When you lose a tooth, your other teeth tend to shift their positions over time. This can lead to problems with your bite, causing your teeth to come together at odd angles. You may experience pain at this point, as well as damage to your teeth. That’s why it’s always best to replace a missing tooth. If there’s just one tooth missing, the best option is a dental implant and crown to replace the tooth. This restoration will:

  • Look as natural as your other teeth
  • Give you back a strong bite
  • Help you avoid bone loss in your jaw that would otherwise occur

A bridge is also a possibility, especially if you have more than one missing tooth in a row. Your dentist can discuss your tooth replacement options and help you decide what’s best for your situation.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

When would I need oral surgery?

Tooth extraction is often needed if a tooth is too damaged to repair or if it is damaging your other teeth. In some cases, you need to have teeth removed to make room for dentures or another dental restoration. If necessary, we’ll recommend a bone graft to ensure your jaw is strong enough to support dental implants.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

After your oral surgery, you should not exercise at all for the first 24 hours. Doing too much too soon can increase your healing time. For example, strenuous exercise can loosen the blood clot on an extraction site and cause a painful condition known as dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for several more days to prevent complications.

How can I prepare for oral surgery?

You’ll need to avoid smoking for at least 12 hours prior to oral surgery (and 24 hours after). We perform most oral surgeries using only local anesthesia, so you’ll be able to enjoy a light meal several hours beforehand. We’ll give you more specific instructions. It’s a good idea to take off work or school for a day or two, depending on the kind of surgery you receive.
