Oral Surgery Q&A

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery at Oral Care Dentistry: Parnaz Aurasteh, DDS, involves dental surgery that restores the appearance or function of your teeth, gums, or jaw bone. You might need oral surgery if you have:

  • Severe gum disease
  • Gum recession
  • Loose or missing permanent teeth
  • Impacted or painful wisdom teeth
  • Severe tooth decay
  • A mouth injury
  • An unsightly smile

The Oral Care Dentistry team works with you to develop a personalized oral surgery treatment plan that offers the best outcome without pain or extensive downtime.

Is oral surgery right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for oral surgery, Dr. Aurasteh reviews your oral health history, takes dental X-rays, and examines your teeth and gums. She discusses your desired outcome to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you. Even if you’re typically treated by another dentist, Dr. Aurasteh can still perform your oral surgery.

How should I prepare for oral surgery?

Follow Dr. Aurasteh’s pre-surgery instructions prior to your scheduled procedure. She and her team do whatever it takes to keep you comfortable before, during, and after oral surgery. You might have to avoid eating food on the morning of the procedure. Keep ice packs at home for use after your surgery.

What happens during oral surgery?

When you arrive at Oral Care Dentistry: Parnaz Aurasteh, DDS, for oral surgery, you relax in a comfortable reclining dental chair. Your provider numbs the treatment area and offers a sedative to relax you or uses general anesthesia to keep you asleep. 

Dr. Aurasteh makes a tiny incision, when necessary, and inserts dental implants, removes teeth, or places gum or bone grafts as needed to restore your teeth and smile. You rest in a recovery area until you’re ready to head home.

What should I expect during my recovery?

Your recovery after oral surgery depends on the specific type of surgery you undergo. Dr. Aurasteh might place gauze in your mouth to stop any bleeding. Expect some swelling or tenderness for several days. 

Take medications as directed, follow a soft-food diet, and ice your mouth as needed to optimize your recovery. Take it easy by avoiding strenuous physical activity until Dr. Aurasteh gives you the okay.

Don’t live with tooth crowding, receding gums, mouth pain, or missing permanent teeth when you don’t have to. Schedule a consultation with Oral Care Dentistry: Parnaz Aurasteh, DDS, to find out if oral surgery is for you.
