Oral surgery

Oral surgery has to do with surgical procedure performed on your teeth, gums or jawbone. This surgery is an aspect of dentistry that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of different dental diseases through surgical procedures to acquire better oral health for the patient. It is usually necessary to improve the soft and hard tissues of the maxillofacial region and improve aesthetics. This surgery is performed under local anaesthesia or IV sedation done by our specially experienced anaesthetist.

rating star iconI was searching for a dentist to do implants treatment. visited Dental Implant London and when I visited the clinic, I found they are so caring and supportive. The dentist explained me the entire process and suggested to stay calm during the treatment. Many thanks!

rating star iconI have had gum disease and as a result have lost quite a few of my teeth. I was coping okay with my upper teeth plate but when I lost my bottom teeth I decided to have implants because bottom dentures were much more difficult to manage. I’m now considering having the upper set replaced with dental implants as well.

Importance of oral surgery

We use oral surgeries as a remedy to many dental problems. We recommend oral surgeries for the following reasons:

  • To treat diseases that cannot be treated by conventional methods: treatments like removing an impacted wisdom tooth or broken tooth, which cannot be removed by your regular dentist will require surgery. Also, we may recommend dental surgery if you have a complex medical history which does not allow you to use some forms of conventional treatments.
  • To replace missing teeth: people who would prefer using implants to hold the dentures or bridges may need to undergo a little surgery. Also, surgery is inevitable when bone grafting is needed for the process.
  • To rescue your dental health: if you have a problem like a cyst or a lump which is likely to progress, we will recommend oral surgery. This is because the problem will worsen with time. As a remedy, we prefer to give timely attention to your pathology.
  • To address your oral concerns: we recommend dental surgery according to the specific needs of our patients. After accessing you, we will advise you accordingly. This medical advice does not place any obligation on you to receive treatment from us.

Frequently asked questions on oral surgery

How painful is dental surgery?

There are no pains during dental surgery. Our dentist and dental team will ensure you are comfortable enough and ready for a successful treatment. Before the surgery, we will administer local anaesthesia to keep you from any pain or discomfort that may arise during the process.

After the surgery, you will experience some little discomforts, but with some painkillers, they will subside. Oral surgeries are only performed under local anaesthesia, and if you are nervous, you will be placed under IV sedation by a highly trained and experienced anaesthetist.

How long will I take to recover from the surgery?

There will undoubtedly be some pain and discomforts after the surgery, and they may last for a few days. To find relief, you can take some over the counter medications. The healing process is fast, so you may only have to wait for a week or two for your mouth to heal. However, there are cases where healing can take more time.

Is there anything I should do after oral surgery?

If you have swelling after the surgery, put some ice packs on that part of your face for about 15 minutes. Also, you will need to stick to soft and liquid foods when the surgery is over. Try soups,smoothies, mashed potatoes, yoghurts, and fruit milkshakes.

rating star iconI have struggled with various problems with my teeth over many years, and eventually was advised to have most of them removed. I was devastated about this but decided that I should see Dental Implants London for their advice on possible implants. They investigated my bone density before telling me that I would be suitable candidate. It is such a relief to know that I will soon have functioning teeth again. Thank you.

rating star iconI have been looking at the cost of all on 4 dental implants and found that Dental Implants London was offering treatment at a very competitive cost. I will be starting my treatment next month.

How long will I have to wait before eating after oral surgery?

You may feel good enough to eat immediately after the surgery; however, this is not advisable. Eating immediately after the surgery may cause the other tissues to be injured since they will still be in their numbed state (under the influence of the local anaesthesia) and chewing should not be immediately done on them.

So, you should wait until the local anaesthesia wears off its effects before you start your nutrition with a soft diet. To chew more intensively on chewy or crunchy food, you will need to wait until one week after the surgery.

You should also stay away from acidic foods since they may irritate the tissue of your gums and cause severe pains as the site is healing. A few days to some weeks may be what you need when recovering from surgery done on your wisdom tooth.

Is there anything for me to avoid after the surgery?

You are required to stay away from strenuous exercise two to three days after undergoing oral surgery. Strenuousexercises will cause your blood flow to increase, and this may dissolve the blood that clots in the area of the surgery for quick healing. Also, you are to stay away from food or water until you no longer feel the effect of the local anaesthesia.
