Oral surgery refers to surgical procedures performed on the mouth, jaw, and surrounding areas. These procedures are typically done to treat a variety of issues, such as tooth extraction, wisdom teeth removal, dental implants, jaw surgery, and more.

Oral surgery is typically performed by a licensed oral and maxillofacial surgeon. These specialists have received extensive training in surgery of the mouth, jaw, and surrounding areas.

The specifics of an oral surgery procedure will depend on the type of surgery being performed. However, generally speaking, you can expect to be given anesthesia to help you relax and numb the area being operated on. The surgeon will then make incisions and perform the necessary surgical procedures. After the procedure is complete, you will be given instructions on how to care for the affected area while it heals.

There may be some discomfort during and after an oral surgery procedure, but the level of pain will depend on the individual and the specific procedure being performed. Your surgeon will take steps to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible during the procedure and will provide you with pain management options after the surgery.

The recovery time for oral surgery will depend on the individual and the specific procedure being performed. However, you can generally expect some level of discomfort and swelling for the first few days after the surgery. Your surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to care for the affected area and how to manage any pain or discomfort during the recovery period.

As with any surgery, there are risks associated with oral surgery. These risks may include bleeding, infection, nerve damage, and more. However, your surgeon will take steps to minimize these risks and will discuss any potential complications with you before the procedure.

Your surgeon will provide you with specific instructions on how to prepare for your oral surgery procedure. This may include fasting for a certain amount of time before the surgery, stopping certain medications, and more. It's important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure that the surgery goes smoothly.

The specifics of insurance coverage will depend on your individual insurance plan. However, many insurance plans do cover oral surgery procedures. Your dental office can help you determine what your insurance will cover and what your out-of-pocket costs may be.

The best way to reduce your risk of needing oral surgery in the future is to maintain good oral hygiene habits. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
