Oral surgery can be required to address many issues, such as:
An impacted wisdom tooth refers to the 3rd molar that usually grows much later in a patient's life. When a wisdom tooth becomes “impacted” it means that the tooth did not properly grow out and has become trapped between the jawbone and gums. Impacted teeth can be a source of a great deal of pain if not dealt with immediately. They can also cause permanent damage to nearby teeth, bones, and gum, therefore, Sunrise Dental recommends oral surgery to remove the tooth. Surgery for impacted wisdom teeth is one of the most common oral surgery procedures.
Sunrise Dental does its utmost to ensure a pleasant and easy experience for its patients. Anesthesia can be used if deemed necessary for the procedure by our experienced dentists. Depending on the nature of the procedure, local sedation or general anesthesia can be used to help operation along smoothly.
Standard care for all patients post-surgery will involve a series of checkups determined by our doctors in order to confirm that everything is healing properly and no infections have occurred. Medication can be prescribed to deal with any lingering pain from the procedure. Patients will experience mild discomfort, bleeding, and swelling to affected areas immediately after the procedure. Pain medication will be prescribed to keep you comfortable until the pain fades as you heal.
At Sunrise Dental of Bellevue, we are dedicated to our patients' dental health. We accept a variety of insurance providers to make sure that all of our patients are covered. If your insurance is not listed or if you have any questions, please call our office to see how we can partner with you.
