At Urban Smiles Victoria, we offer a wide range of dental services to keep your mouth clean and healthy. Occasionally, your oral health may require a dental specialist’s expertise, and in this case, we can refer you to a specialist we know and trust.
When it comes to specialized patient care, our dentists will take care of your dental needs or refer you to an oral surgeon when needed.
Types of Oral Surgery
Oral surgery may be needed for various reasons, including wisdom teeth removal, dental implant placement, and jaw surgery to correct jaw-related issues. Oral surgeons may also perform facial reconstruction surgeries in cases of trauma.
What to Expect from Oral Surgery
As with many types of oral surgery, your dentist will use a local anesthetic to numb the area for your comfort. If you feel nervous or suffer from dental anxiety, you may consider sedation options to help you relax. Your dentist will also give you instructions on how to care for the treated area and discuss any follow-up appointments that may be needed.
