Oral surgery encompasses various surgical procedures in the oral cavity.
Apicoectomy is a surgical procedure used to remove the tip of a tooth’s root (apex) that is infected or inflamed. It is usually applied after unsuccessful endodontic treatment (root canal therapy).
Surgical extraction of Teeth and Wisdom Teeth
Tooth extraction is the removal of a tooth from the oral cavity. Reasons for tooth extraction can include decay, periodontal disease, impaction (when a tooth has not grown in properly), or the need to measure space before orthodontic treatment.
Wisdom teeth are the last molars in the mouth and can often be impacted or cause discomfort. Wisdom tooth extraction is often necessary to avoid complications such as pain, infections, and bite disorders.
Root resection is a surgical procedure in which part of a tooth’s root is removed, usually due to infection or damage that cannot be resolved with endodontic therapy.
When and why Is Oral Surgery performed?
Oral surgery is performed when necessary to preserve oral health. Reasons for oral surgery can include treating infections, removing teeth that are irreparably damaged, correcting bite irregularities, preparing for prosthetic replacements (e.g., implants), removing tumors or cysts, and addressing problems with the jaws and temporomandibular joints.
Therapy and procedures of Oral Surgery
Oral surgery procedures usually involve local anesthesia to ensure a painless procedure. The surgeon may use scalpels, drills, and other instruments to perform the necessary procedures. After the surgical procedure, patients are usually advised to undergo certain therapy for faster recovery, including applying ice, taking medications to control pain and inflammation, and a special diet for the first few days, and most often antibiotic therapy.
Post-Oral Surgery Treatment
Treatment after oral surgery depends on the type and complexity of the procedure, but usually includes wound care, use of prescribed medications, avoiding hot and very cold food, and following the instructions of your oral surgeon to ensure a quick and painless recovery.
It is important to consult with an oral surgeon to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, as each patient has unique needs and conditions.
