Oral Surgery Q & A

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery is reserved for dental issues that can’t be addressed with other restorative treatments. Surgical procedures on your teeth and gums can result in long-term, improved oral health and function. 

At Parkside Dental, the team uses state-of-the-art technology for complex treatment planning and evaluations. Services like X-rays and digital scanning can help avoid complications that might arise during oral surgery. 

The team has extensive training and experience in oral surgeries and can perform many operations at the office. This means you don’t have to venture to an unfamiliar office on referral to get the treatment you need. Instead, you can get your surgery in the comfortable and familiar place where you receive all other dental treatments. 

How should I prepare for oral surgery?

Preparing for oral surgery involves a few steps after your initial consultation. The team makes sure you know what to expect leading up to the surgery and what you can anticipate during the recovery process. 

You receive individualized instructions on how to prepare for your oral surgery, which might include:

  • X-rays
  • Smoking cessation
  • Avoiding certain medications
  • Arranging a ride to and from your surgery
  • Discussing options for anesthesia and sedation
  • Aftercare arrangements 

Knowing what to expect during your recovery can help you take additional steps to prepare ahead of time, like stocking your fridge with soft foods or requesting a few days off work as you heal. 

When might I need oral surgery?

The team routinely performs oral surgeries at Parkside Dental, specializing in procedures like:

Surgical extractions

When a tooth is impacted below the gumline or broken, it may not be possible for your dentist to remove it with a simple extraction. Instead, they perform a surgical extraction by making an incision in your gums for better access to the tooth. 

Dental implant surgery

Dental implant surgery is the process of embedding a titanium post in your jawbone. The entire process involves two surgeries before your dentist attaches a crown or denture to the healed implant.  

Periodontal surgery

Periodontal surgery removes diseased gum tissue and repositions the healthy tissue. You might also need a gum graft if you have gum recession as a result of periodontal disease.
