Oral Surgery Q & A
Do I Need Oral Surgery?
If you suffer from impacted wisdom teeth or jaw alignment issues, you will likely need oral surgery to fix the issue. However, there are a number of other varying conditions that might result in oral surgery if your dentist feels that there are no other alternative solutions. If you feel that you may need oral surgery, you should visit Georgetown Dental Spa as soon as possible to have your concerns addressed.
What Do I Need to Know About My Surgery?
Just like any other surgery, it is important for you to gather as much information as possible beforehand. Depending on your condition and what you need to have done, your surgery may vary. At Georgetown Dental Spa, the friendly office staff works hard to ensure that all patients feel comfortable and knowledgeable about the procedures they are going to have done. Before any surgery, you will attend a consultation with your dentist and/or oral surgeon. You will learn about the procedure selected to address your needs, including benefits, risks, and alternatives. This is also your opportunity to ask questions about the procedure. Some questions you might want to ask include:
- What happens during the procedure?
- Will I need sedation?
- What should I expect during recovery?
- Will I need to take any extra steps in caring for my teeth following surgery?
- What will my teeth and smile look after surgery?
The dentists at Georgetown Dental Spa want to be your partner in improving and maintaining your oral health and will do their best to educate you and empower you to make the best choice to address your unique dental needs.
How Long Will I Be in Recovery?
Again, depending on your specific surgery, recovery times may vary. However, most surgeries can take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks to heal completely. With impacted wisdom teeth or any tooth extraction, it is important to care for your mouth appropriately and until healing is complete in order to prevent any infections or complications. Your oral surgeon at Georgetown Dental Spa will be able to give you more specific parameters on how to care for your teeth and gums following your surgery.
