Oral Surgery Q & A

by James J. Lee, DDS

What procedures are considered oral surgery?

Surgery takes place any time that a procedure breaches the protective surfaces of the human body, such as the skin or gum tissue. Some of the most common types of oral surgery include dental implants, removal of impacted wisdom teeth and root canals. Surgical procedures are also available to help repair facial injury or replace lost bone tissue. Each patient has his or her own set of needs when it comes to oral surgery, and a treatment option is available to suit virtually every dental condition. In addition, a range of anesthetic options are used during oral surgery, which is another matter that will be discussed prior to treatment.

Is oral surgery safe?

Any time that the skin or gum tissue is compromised, a risk of infection is presented. However, when conducted by a highly skilled team in a sterile environment, oral surgery is a safe and effective dental intervention. It should also be noted that many surgical procedures are conducted to address harmful conditions within the mouth, which can lead to serious negative health effects if left untreated. Viewed from this perspective, oral surgery has a much more powerful healing role than some people realize. Many patients have received oral surgery services from Blooming Dental, PLLC and are happy with the outcome and their ability to regain normal function.

What makes a person a good candidate for oral surgery?

Before a surgical treatment plan is determined, Dr. James J. Lee, DDS will conduct a thorough review of overall health and background. Any other dental issues are usually taken care of prior to oral surgery so that the mouth will be healthy at the time the procedure takes place. Certain medical conditions make some people better suited to surgery than others, but this is an area in which a customized, personalized approach is called for, which is why each case is independently evaluated and treated on its own merits.
