Most dental practices will refer you to an oral surgeon for dental cases that require more specialized, surgical procedures. At Jennifer Lopez Dental, we offer comprehensive services in general dentistry and oral surgery for your convenience.
It’s not as daunting as it sounds! Oral surgery includes many dental procedures that vary in complexity, from extractions to root canals and dental implants, as well as full mouth reparations in the case of injury.
The removal of impacted wisdom teeth is one of the most common reasons for oral surgery, and is no less important. Wisdom teeth that grow misaligned, or impacted, between the gum line and the jawbone can cause painful swelling. This may even lead to infection in the gums and surrounding teeth. Similar to extractions, impacted teeth can be removed surgically to prevent further damage or decay.
The amount of preparation for oral surgery will greatly depend on your procedure. You may need X-rays or digital imaging taken for diagnostic purposes, as we use the latest in dental technology to give our patients the highest quality in dental care.
Make sure to include any medications and supplements you are taking on your medical history, and follow the instructions you will be provided for before and after your treatment.
As your leading specialists in general dentistry and oral surgery, we are committed to providing high-quality dental care. Your smile is in the best hands for a seamless experience. Contact us today to get started!
