Oral Surgery Q & A

Farhoumand Dentistry

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery is a field of dentistry that delivers surgical solutions for problems with your teeth, gums, jaws, and surrounding areas. Dr. Foad and Dr. Farah perform several types of oral surgery, with the most common being tooth extractions.

When is a tooth extraction needed?

Dr. Foad and Dr. Farah may recommend tooth extraction in situations including:

  • An impacted wisdom tooth
  • A partly erupted wisdom tooth that doesn't have room to erupt fully
  • A wisdom tooth that's erupting at an angle that pressures your other teeth
  • A severely decayed tooth that root canal therapy can't save
  • A tooth that's damaged beyond repair following mouth trauma
  • Primary teeth that don't fall out on their own
  • Preparation for necessary orthodontic treatment like braces

How do you prepare for oral surgery?

Dr. Foad and Dr. Farah will provide you with preparation guidelines ahead of your oral surgery. Typically, those include the following:

  • Arrange for someone to drive you home after the appointment
  • Don't eat or drink for eight hours before your surgery
  • Take any medicines prescribed, like antibiotics
  • Stock up on soft foods to eat when you get home

Drs. Foad and Farah Farhoumand may give you additional preparation directions based on your specific situation. By following these directions closely, you can expect the easiest and most comfortable oral surgery recovery possible.
