When many of us hear the term “oral surgery” we cringe. We think of our gums, teeth and overall oral cavity as a sensitive place, and the last place that dental tools belong. When oral surgery is a necessity, it’s hard to think of ourselves as lucky. What is fortunate is that we live in a time where advancements in dental technology have made it possible for oral surgery to be as painless and as minimally intrusive as possible. Sugar Land, TX’s Smiles On Greatwood Dentistry has become a safe and reassuring place for Texas patients who are in need of any number of dental procedures. That’s because Dr. Akbar H Jafferally, DMD provides comfort as well as the utmost in care, especially when it comes to oral surgery.
Oral surgical procedures performed at Smiles On Greatwood Dentistry include wisdom teeth removal/third molar surgery, extractions, extraction site preservation, bone grafting, and implant restorations, among many others. Dr. Jafferally has helped patients regain their smiles in the face of accidental tooth loss, facial trauma, and various forms of periodontal disease. Even as technology has become more efficient, comprehensive and minimally invasive, it’s not unusual for patients to retain their apprehension about oral surgery. Dr. Jafferally has taken this into consideration and takes special care to educate his patients and dispel any misconceptions or fears that may cause them to forgo surgery and neglect their oral health. Additionally, complete pre-op and post-op guides can be found on Smiles On Greatwood Dentistry’s website.
In most cases, oral surgery procedures can be made painless through the use of an anesthetic. Based on the individual procedure, many patients experience minimal discomfort, even during the recovery period; when any soreness or healing pain occurs it can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers. Soft food diets, allotting ample recovery time, and basic self-care, such as saltwater rinsing, can make nearly any oral surgery manageable from start to finish. The entire staff at Smiles On Greatwood Dentistry encourages Sugar Land patients to contact the office with questions and express their concerns regarding oral surgery.
