Oral, Dental and Maxillofacial Surgery

We don't want you to need it at all, but your dentist may have told you that you need oral surgery to solve your mouth problem. You've never had more than a filling done and the idea of a surgical procedure is daunting. Here are some common procedures performed by oral surgeons and their details.

Commonly Performed Oral Surgical Procedures
Tooth Extraction and Impacted Teeth:
Teeth that show a certain part of the tooth in the mouth are usually a simple extraction. It can be surgically removed when bone or tissue is cut to remove the tooth. In surgical extractions, stitches are also applied to close the wound. Wisdom teeth may be impacted in some cases and often need to be surgically extracted. Whether the tooth is partially impacted or fully impacted can change the surgical procedure.

 

Pre-Prosthetic Surgery
In some cases, lengthening of individual teeth or rasping of bone may be required to ensure the suitability of veneers or bridges. Surgery may be required for this.


Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a complex form of oral surgery.
  He performs surgeries such as corrective jaw surgery, dentoalveolar surgery, nerve repositioning and dental implants.


Preparation for Surgery
If you are facing any type of oral surgery, there are a few precautions you can take to make sure you are ready when the time comes. When you talk to the specialist, they may order additional CT scans of your mouth to determine exactly what your needs are. They will review your medical history, and it's important to mention all the medications you take, including over-the-counter products, vitamins, and supplements. Depending on the planned procedure and your medical history, your oral health professional may administer antibiotic prophylaxis. Patients with prosthetic joints, certain heart conditions, or a weakened immune system may require medication before surgery.

 

Post Surgery
Any post-oral surgery requires a recovery period, which you may be limited to certain types of food or diet. During the recovery period, it is important to follow the specialist's instructions and contact your dentist if you have any questions or concerns. Pain relieved by painkillers in the first 2-3 days after surgery, swelling on the face, and rarely minor skin color changes are expected effects and will disappear at the end of the first week. It may be normal to have complaints that last longer, but it is useful to consult us.
