Oral Surgery

Oral surgery is an essential branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis and surgical treatment of oral conditions. Dr. Yeh and Associates cover many oral surgery procedures, including wisdom teeth removal, bone grafting, and dental implant placement.

Dental Technology Modernizes Oral Surgery

Our team is unique in its approach to treating oral issues and involves considerable skills to perform correctly. In addition to traditional surgical techniques, oral surgeons may incorporate advanced technologies such as 3D imaging for dental implant placement. Our oral surgeon works closely with other dental professionals and can assist in creating long-term plans for oral health. With their expertise in this field, oral surgeons are essential to working towards healthy oral habits for patients.

Dr. Yeh and Associates Offers Oral Surgery

An oral surgeon is an oral healthcare professional who has completed four years of dental school and an additional four or more years of oral surgery residency training. With this specialized training and expertise, oral surgeons can perform complex procedures such as corrective jaw surgery and reconstructive facial surgeries:

  • Wisdom tooth extractions can be used to prevent potential complications and answer to impacted third molars and wisdom tooth pain.
  • Implant placement is a surgical procedure. After tooth loss or extraction, our oral surgeon carefully places dental implants into the jawbone to create a secure base for restorations.
  • Bone grafting is necessary for those with inadequate jawbone structures who want dental implants.

Every oral surgery healing process is different, and your dentist will give more in-depth instructions before surgery. Generally, patients can expect the following:

  • Planning for at least two days after the procedure

·         A week or two of healing 

2. Is dental oral surgery painful?

While one might feel uncomfortable before oral surgery (such as wisdom teeth pain), the surgery should not be painful. Since we numb our patients with anesthetics before starting oral surgery, patients should not feel anything during treatment. If anything, one might feel slight pressure during this pain-free dentistry experience.

Many patients fear feeling pain after oral surgery, but our oral surgery team prescribes medications to help patients manage discomfort 

3. How long does oral surgery last?

Typically, oral surgeries are scheduled for one day and are completed within a few hours; depending on the anesthesia, dental sedation, and procedure the oral surgeon oversees, you may need a few hours to recover.
