There are a number of instances when an oral surgery may be recommended. The surgical process may have to be performed to remove tooth or some unwanted tissues from the oral cavity or to place a dental implant or when esthetic changes have to be made by surgically correcting lips, gums or teeth. Dentists who have vast experience and knowledge in the field of oral surgery can perform the complex procedures.
The dentist generally strives to ensure that the treatment is painless. Local anesthesia and sedation dentistry play a key role in oral surgeries. The dentist firstly examines the condition of patient and makes a note of his/her medical history before administering sedation and anesthesia. During the surgical process, the blood pressure level, pulse-rate and other crucial medical factors of the patient are monitored to ensure safe treatment.
The dentist sets a treatment plan based on the requirement of the patient. For ex: the surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth may either be a conventional removal process where the tooth is pulled out, or a complex one where the tooth is cut into pieces before it is carefully removed from the oral cavity.
The dentist explains to patients how the surgical process takes place and provides the necessary guidance on after-treatment care to ensure quick healing. Patients should strictly adhere to the after-treatment care tips.
