Oral Surgery Q & A

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery is any surgical procedure performed on your oral cavity, which includes your teeth, gums, and the soft tissues in your mouth.

When most people hear the word “surgery,” they immediately think of general anesthesia, overnight hospital stays, and lengthy recovery times. 

Oral surgery, however, is different. Many oral surgeries are performed in-office at Dental Town DC and are done on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. In most cases, you go home the same day as your oral surgery, and recovery is quick and easy.

What oral surgery services do you offer?

Dr. Shenasi performs several oral surgeries at Dental Town DC, including:

Wisdom teeth extraction

Most people don’t have room in their mouth for their third set of molars, leaving them to emerge crooked, crowded, or impacted. By surgically removing them, Dr. Shenasi improves your overall oral health.

Bone grafting

If you need to augment the bone tissue in your jaw for dental implants or periodontal work, Dr. Shenasi can perform a bone graft to build up the structure of your jaw or face.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) application

PRP infusions use the regenerative components naturally found in your own blood to accelerate healing after oral surgery. With PRP infusions, Dr. Shenasi can also reduce the risk of complications during hard and soft tissue regeneration.

Orthognathic surgery

Orthognathic surgery involves modifying your jaw or maxilla to create a stronger and more dependable structure for effective orthodontic treatments.

Facial reconstruction surgery

If you’re suffered physical trauma that’s left your face significantly damaged, Dr. Shenasi can restore your appearance with facial reconstruction surgery. Using her in-depth understanding of the function and appearance of facial features, she can repair fractures to your eye socket, jaw, nose, or cheek and restore teeth that are damaged or knocked out.

How do I care for my mouth after oral surgery?

Every oral surgery is slightly different, so every recovery protocol is unique. Dr. Shenasi sends you home from your oral surgery with detailed aftercare instructions, and the team at Dental Town DC is always available by phone to answer any questions about your recovery. If you follow their directions, your recovery should be simple and swift.
