What Is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgeries are surgeries performed to improve oral health. Oral surgeries are performed on the teeth, gums, and other oral structures. Oral surgeries range from simple extractions to bone grafting to strengthen the jawbone before dental implant surgery.

Oral surgeries offered at Hi-Fi Dental are provided under local anesthesia in our Phoenix dental practice. As outpatient procedures, you will return home after your surgery, rather than requiring a hospital stay.

Frequently Asked Questions About Oral Surgery

Does oral surgery require general anesthesia?
Oral surgery performed by Dr. Napoleon at Hi-Fi Dental is performed under local anesthesia. Patients may also request relaxation with nitrous oxide during their procedure.
How long is recovery from oral surgery?
Recovery times vary depending on the type of oral surgery you undergo. Simple tooth extractions have a shorter recovery time than dental implant placement. Nearly all patients are recovered within a week, irrespective of the surgery.
What can I eat after oral surgery?
After oral surgery, you should adopt a soft food diet for at least 48 hours. You should also avoid spicy, acidic, and sweet foods while the surgical site is healing. You should not use a straw, drink alcohol, smoke, vape, or use any form of smokeless tobacco while recovering from oral surgery.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are regarded as the premium dental restoration for missing teeth. One of the reasons is because they are incredibly durable. With good oral hygiene habits, dental implants are expected to last at least 20 years but may last an entire lifetime.
Does it hurt to get a bone graft?
You will not experience pain during your oral surgery, because the area being operated on will be completely anesthetized.
What are the options for replacing a tooth after an extraction?
After a dental extraction, your replacement options are dental implant, removable partial or fixed bridge.
Does insurance cover oral surgery?
All insurance plans are a bit different. Some offer partial coverage, other plans do not provide coverage for oral surgery. To learn about your financial responsibility, contact your insurance company.
Can I finance oral surgery?
Absolutely. Oral surgeries may be paid for with a credit card, or through Care Credit or Lending Club financing.
