Oral Surgery Q & A

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery is a specialized field of dentistry that refers to a variety of surgical dental procedures. The team at BMW Dental specializes in oral surgery and routinely delivers high-quality results to patients. 

Using a sedative agent is often a part of oral surgery. Your BMW Dental team member will discuss this with you and help you better understand the process. Sedation makes oral surgery more comfortable for you and helps alleviate dental fear and anxiety, particularly when it comes to treating younger patients. Your oral surgeon will also discuss the different sedative options available. 

Do I need oral surgery?

Each patient is different and the BMW Dental team always attempts to exhaust more conservative, nonsurgical methods before restoring to oral surgery. However, in some cases, oral surgery is necessary. 

Some of the oral surgery procedures the team performs include: 

Extractions

The team may recommend surgical extractions in cases of severe decay or to improve overcrowding. Wisdom tooth extractions are a common type of extraction procedure. 

Surgical periodontal treatment

If periodontal disease progresses, surgery may be needed to repair the soft tissue that holds your teeth together. 

Dental implants

Oral surgery to place dental implants, small metal frames that support prosthetics, is a common method used to replace missing teeth. 

Root canals

This tooth-saving treatment helps treat infections that affect the soft tissue pulp inside your teeth. 

If you’re dealing with decay, missing teeth, gum disease, or other oral health problems, turn to the team at BMW Dental for guidance. They’ll help you better understand your oral surgery options. 

Is oral surgery safe? 

Yes, oral surgery is perfectly safe when performed by the professional team members at BMW Dental. However, as is the case with any medical procedure, there are potential complications. But serious complications are exceedingly rare, and minimal risks, such as bleeding, swelling, or bruising, subside on their own quickly. 

Prior to undergoing any type of oral surgery, you’ll have ample opportunities to raise any questions or concerns you might have regarding the specifics of the procedures.
