When Oral Surgery Is the Only Option

Did you know that oral surgery is the most common surgical procedure in the United States? See when oral surgery is the right treatment for you.

The Dentist’s Demand for Oral Surgeons

While your dentist in Ocoee will handle simple dental procedures, there are times when simple treatments are just not enough to repair your more serious or specialized needs. These cases demand the surgical solutions that only oral surgery can provide. When this happens, your dentist in Ocoee will refer you to oral surgeons in your area who can treat your specific needs.

The Need for Oral Surgery

There are many different reasons why your dentist in Ocoee would send you to oral surgeons for care. Since some of these procedures can be costly, most oral surgeons offer special payment options to make oral surgery an affordable dental care option. Oral surgery is usually required if you experience any of these issues:

  • Complications from simple tooth extractions
  • Serious damage to face or jaw due to trauma, injury, or accident
  • Decayed or worn-down teeth
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Removing teeth with long-curved roots
  • Taking out teeth surrounded by extremely dense bone

Help with Healing after Oral Surgery

After any oral surgery, you will receive detailed instructions for recovery and follow-up. It’s important to closely follow these directions to help you heal properly. Some general guidelines for recovering from oral surgery include:

  • Avoiding too much talking, eating, and drinking for two hours after the procedure
  • Easing back into eating by only having clear liquids and very soft foods for the first 24 hours after surgery
  • Drinking plenty of cold or lukewarm liquids once any bleeding stops
  • Not brushing or rinsing your teeth for around 12 hours after surgery, and then being careful to avoid the surgical area once you’re able to brush again
  • Following your oral surgeon’s instructions for any prescribed pain medications
  • Calling your oral surgeon or dentist immediately if you experience persistent pain or bleeding
