Tactics and Tips for Successful Oral Surgery

Even though oral surgery is extremely common, it’s normal to be nervous and unsure of what to expect. To answer your questions and ease your mind, use this helpful guide.

Reasons You Need Oral Surgeons

Most of your dental care needs can be handled by your general dentist in Jacksonville, but advanced or specialized cases will demand oral surgery. Your dentist in Jacksonville will refer you to trusted oral surgeons for the very best care. If the cost of oral surgery has you concerned, ask your dentist in Jacksonville to recommend oral surgeons who offer affordable dental care options. Some of the complex conditions that require oral surgery include:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Jaw surgery
  • Facial trauma
  • Injury to the face or jaw
  • Dental infections
  • Serious disorders affecting the face, teeth, jaws, or neck
  • Dental implants

Preparing for Oral Surgery

Before undergoing the procedure, rest assured that oral surgeons describe the precise treatment prescribed for you. They also discuss your anesthesia options, provide instructions for recovery, and outline the need for follow-up care. During this time, ask any questions and address any concerns you may have. If the cost is a challenge, ask if there are any available affordable dental care options. Go over any instructions for the day of the procedure, such as whether you need to wear comfortable clothing, avoid eating, or have someone available to take you home.

After the Procedure

After oral surgery, you will be given precise instructions for the recovery period. While you need to follow the oral surgeon’s exact directions, these tips can help ease your recovery and healing:

  • Soothe swelling by applying ice packs for 20 minutes at a time.
  • Keep your head propped up with several pillows.
  • Stick to softer foods, such as yogurt, cottage cheese, smoothies, and mashed potatoes for the first few days.
  • Stay away from very spicy and acidic foods during the healing process.
  • Don’t drink out of a straw, because this can damage the surgical area and cause major problems.
  • Call your oral surgeon or dentist if you have any pain, problems or questions.
