Oral surgery may be required for various reasons, such as tooth extraction, impacted wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placement, jaw surgery, and treatment of oral diseases or injuries.
Most oral surgery procedures are performed under local anesthesia, making them relatively painless during the procedure. Post-surgery discomfort can be managed with prescribed pain medications.
Recovery times vary depending on the procedure. Simple extractions may only require a few days, while more complex surgeries can take weeks to heal fully. Your oral surgeon will provide specific guidelines.
Like any surgical procedure, oral surgery carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, and nerve damage. Your oral surgeon will discuss potential risks with you before the procedure.
After oral surgery, you'll need to follow a soft diet for a period specified by your surgeon. This typically includes foods like mashed potatoes, yogurt, and soup until you're healed enough for regular foods.
