Oral surgery is a cluster term for a broad range of dental procedures that involve surgical work. Unlike regular dental procedures, oral surgeries involve incisions or some level of intrusion into the oral soft tissue and bone. Examples of oral surgeries include tooth extractions, pallet repair, and cleft lip surgery. Oral surgery is usually a last resort when all other alternative treatments prove ineffective.

Like all other dental treatments, oral surgery begins with a consultation with the dentist in charge of your surgery. During the consultation, the dentist will review your dental and medical history and ask questions about the same. They’ll also carry out diagnostics tests like bite registration, and TMJ tests, among others. The dentist might also take photographs and X-rays of your teeth and jaws. The dentist will then create a treatment plan before moving to the next step.
The dentist will then administer the anesthetic indicated in the treatment plan. The type and dosage depend on the surgery. The anesthetic numbs the affected area, ensuring a painless procedure. Once the anesthetic kicks in, the dentist will conduct the oral surgery as per the standard procedure indicated in the treatment plan.
After the procedure, the dentist will issue instructions on caring for the affected region. Common tips include avoiding strenuous activity, taking medication as prescribed, and avoiding alcohol and substances that may irritate the wound. The dentist might also schedule follow-up visits to check the recovery progress and address complications that may arise mid-recovery.

Dentists typically recommend painkillers to you to manage pain after the surgery. These painkillers are readily available and are inexpensive. However, you should see a dentist if the pain persists past four weeks. You could have complications with the surgical area.
No, oral surgery is completely painless since you’ll be placed under sedation or anesthesia. The type of sedation depends on the length and complexity of the surgery. Simple surgeries like flap surgery require mild sedation like laughing gas, complex surgeries require deep sedatives that make you unconscious.
