Oral surgery is a recognized dental specialty involving the diagnosis, dental care and dental treatment of specific dental conditions that can be surgically corrected. This includes wisdom teeth extraction, dental implants, and TMJ surgery, as well as other surgical dental procedures. Oral surgery can achieve nearly miraculous results for dental patients who have been suffering from these types of severe and painful conditions.
An oral surgeon is a dentist who has received at least three years of additional training beyond the standard education in general dentistry. Not every dentist is an oral surgeon, and if you need to have dental surgery then you want to be sure you are working with a reputable, skilled oral surgeon with full training and certifications. In our dental office in Cambridge you can rest assured that you will be receiving the very highest level of professional dental care in all aspects, and your oral surgery will be performed by a highly trained dentist with many years of experience and success in this field.
Oral surgery is performed under anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain during your procedure. In most cases the recovery time and subsequent discomfort is minimal, and your dentist will prescribe pain relief medication to help you remain comfortable as you heal. For dental implants, the procedure is customarily completed in a follow-up appointment with the placement of a dental crown upon the implanted support post. For wisdom teeth extraction and corrective jaw surgery, the resulting relief from the oral surgery is enormous, allowing you to eat, chew and even sleep with no further pain from impacted teeth or painful TMJ.
Undergoing oral surgery can resolve a wide variety of painful dental conditions, creating a more healthy, well-functioning lifestyle.
