What Is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery is any dental intervention that requires a surgical approach, including tooth extractions (such as wisdom teeth removal), dental implant restoration, and root canals. Your general dentist can provide a number of these types of oral surgery, or will refer you to an outside oral surgeon when necessary.
Why Do I Need Oral Surgery?
A dentist will suggest a surgical procedure for a variety of reasons, including needing to remove damaged tooth pulp (root canal), placing a dental implant, or even preparing for full or partial dentures.
What Should I Expect at My Oral Surgery Appointment?

How Long Does Oral Surgery Last?
Oral surgery results vary based on the severity of your condition and the treatment your dentist prescribes.

Good dental hygiene habits will help ensure the longevity and effectiveness of your treatment, and help prevent future ones. Your Huntley Dental Associates team can help ensure that you develop and continue healthy hygiene practices.
