Oral Surgery Q & A

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery refers to specialized procedures performed by a skilled, trained dentist that address a variety of oral health concerns. At Quality Dental Center Inc., the team can treat a host of dental problems with oral surgery, including:

  • Missing teeth
  • Severely decayed teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Weak or insufficient jawbone

What types of oral surgery are available?

The expert team at Quality Dental Center Inc. offers a variety of oral surgery options, including:

Implants

If you have lost a tooth, implants are an excellent tooth replacement option available to you. Oral surgery to deliver implants involves using a special surgical drill to insert a metal post directly into your jawbone. The post acts as a sturdy support for prosthetic teeth that are attached to it.

Bone grafting

To have implants, you need sufficient jawbone to hold an implant. If your jawbone isn’t strong enough or is too thin, you can undergo oral surgery for bone grafting. This involves grafting bone-like material onto your jawbone to strengthen it for the purposes of holding an implant.

Extractions

In cases of decay, crowding, disease, or impacted wisdom teeth, it may be best to perform oral surgery to extract the affected teeth. Extractions are performed under general anesthesia and are made to be as minimally invasive as possible. After an extraction, the team at Quality Dental Center Inc. walks through each step of the recovery process.

Is oral surgery safe?

Yes, oral surgery is perfectly safe. No matter what the procedure is, you’re in excellent hands with the skilled team of professionals at Quality Dental Center Inc. As is the case with all medical procedures, there are possible complications associated with oral surgery, including:

  • Infection
  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Pain

However, the team goes above and beyond to make sure your oral surgery is hassle-free, whether that means pain medication or simple follow-through on your detailed recovery plan.
