Our maxillofacial and oral surgeon is available to help you with most procedures. With years of experience and training, you can trust our specialists to offer the most streamlined and efficient method for improving your dental health. Exploring what oral surgery entails gives you a better sense of the procedures you can look for from you dentist.
When Do You Need Oral Surgery?
Various situations may require the use of oral surgery. Our oral surgeons are able to diagnose and treat various functional and aesthetic conditions related to dental health. This includes procedures related to muscle, tooth, bone, and skin conditions. We work on patients who need help with their jaw, mouth, and face. Some examples of oral surgery we provide include:
- Tooth extraction procedures including for wisdom teeth
- Dental implant procedures
- Bone grafting procedures
- Tongue-tie and diastemas
- Pre-prosthetic surgical procedures
The first step in getting help is to schedule a consultation. Our team will provide a full examination to determine the best level of treatment for your needs. If oral surgery is that ideal choice, we will schedule it and complete it as quickly and as safely as possible.
Why Trust Us for Your Oral Surgical Needs?
It’s not easy to hear that you need a more invasive dental procedure. At Lovett Dental Baytown, we’ve worked hard to gain the trust and confidence of each of our patients. To become oral surgeons, our specialists had to complete four years of dental school, then a surgical residency program in a hospital. We have trained with medical residents in many of the same areas, including general surgery, internal medicine, and anesthesiology.
Will You Need Anesthesia?
Most oral surgery is somewhat invasive. That means you may need some level of anesthesia for your procedure. We use the least amount of anesthesia necessary to minimize any risks or complications. Our oral surgeons have ample experience with using anesthesia, including:
- Localized anesthesia
- Oral sedation
- IV sedation
- General anesthesia
- Customized approaches for your needs
During your procedure, our team will properly manage your airway, handle any necessary endotracheal intubation, and manage all IVs you may need. We are here to minimize any risks. However, if complications do occur, we are able to take proper action to minimize any threat to your wellbeing.
