Oral Surgery Q&A

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery at Championship Dental involves surgical techniques that repair your teeth, jawbone, or gums to restore your smile. You might require oral surgery to:

  • Extract severely decayed teeth
  • Place dental implants in your jawbone if you have missing teeth
  • Receive bone grafting prior to dental implant placement
  • Extract wisdom teeth or third molars to reduce crowding
  • Repair or replace gum tissue if you have periodontal disease

Your dentist uses the most advanced, state-of-the-art surgical equipment and procedures to minimize pain, optimize healing, and give you the best aesthetic results possible.

Am I a good candidate for oral surgery?

Prior to oral surgery, your dentist reviews your medical and dental history. They examine your teeth and gums and use X-rays to determine if oral surgery is right for you. Your provider discusses treatment options with you before scheduling surgery.

What should I expect during oral surgery?

A dental surgeon affiliated with Championship Dental performs your oral surgery. They use non-IV anesthetic (Halcion) to sedate you and numb the treatment area, so you don’t feel any pain during the procedure.

Your dental surgeon makes an incision and extracts teeth, places dental implants or bone grafts in your jawbone, or restores gum tissue with grafts to correct teeth and gum problems. The length of time the procedures lasts depends on which type of surgery you require.

What happens after the procedure?

After surgery, you recover for a period of time. Plan on having someone drive you home after the procedure. Your dentist gives you discharge instructions and a special diet to follow while your mouth heals. For example, they may recommend a soft food diet and several days of rest.

You can apply ice to the treatment area or take pain-relieving or antibiotic medications if your dentist recommends it. Your surgeon lets you know when to schedule follow-up appointments. Receiving dental implants is a multiple-step process that might involve more than one procedure.
