Oral Surgery Q & A

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery at A Smile 4 U is a minor surgical procedure in which your dentist can repair, remove, or replace teeth or gum tissue to improve oral health and the appearance of your smile. The A Smile 4 U team offers oral surgery as needed to maximize oral health and prevent serious dental problems.

Which types of oral surgeries are available?

Some of the many types of oral surgery available at A Smile 4 U include:

  • Wisdom teeth extraction
  • Extraction because of crowding
  • Extraction due to tooth decay or infection
  • Dental implants
  • Gum and other soft tissue repair
  • Laser dentistry

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that support dental crowns, bridges, or dentures and replace missing permanent teeth.

Is oral surgery right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for oral surgery at A Smile 4 U, your dentist reviews your oral health history and examines your gums and teeth. They assess the results of your dental X-rays and discuss your lifestyle and desired outcome. Your specialist personalizes each oral surgery based on your unique needs.

What should I expect during oral surgery?

Right before undergoing oral surgery, your dentist numbs the treatment area and offers a sedative or anesthetic to help you relax or fall asleep. 

They use specialized dental tools to repair your teeth or gums, extract teeth, or place dental implants into your jawbone. Your dentist can close any incisions with stitches as needed and may place gauze on the treatment area to stop bleeding. 

What happens after my treatment?

After oral surgery at A Smile 4 U, you can rest in a recovery area and ride home with a friend or family member. Follow all of your post-surgery instructions. Take medications as directed, avoid brushing your teeth harshly after surgery, don’t drink through a straw unless your provider says it’s OK, and eat a soft food diet until your mouth heals.

After tooth extraction or dental implant placement, you may require follow-up visits to finish a series of dental treatments and perfect your beautiful smile.

If you require wisdom teeth extraction or another type of oral surgery, you can trust highly trained experts at A Smile 4 U with your care. Call the office nearest you to schedule an appointment or book one online today.
