What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions that require surgical intervention in the mouth, jaw, and face. It involves dental treatments that aim to improve oral health, function, and aesthetics, while alleviating pain and discomfort.

Here’s a list of oral surgeries performed by the expert oral surgeons at Smalto Dental Clinic:

Our dental surgeons are fully equipped to perform all types of oral surgeries quickly and pain-free, using local anaesthesia. This numbs the area where the surgery will take place so the patient does not feel any pain.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction - One Of The Most Popular Oral Surgeries

One of the most common oral surgeries is the extraction of impacted third molars, or else, wisdom teeth.

Wisdom teeth are the teeth that develop at the back of the mouth during late teens or early twenties. Yet, while wisdom teeth can be beneficial for chewing and adding structure to the jawline, they can also cause problems to other teeth.

Due to their position at the back of the mouth, wisdom teeth can cause overcrowding or shifting of other teeth, leading to pain and discomfort. They can also become impacted, meaning they are trapped below the gum line, leading to infection, swelling, and damage to nearby teeth. In some cases, the only solution is to have the wisdom teeth removed by a specialist oral surgeon.

Wisdom teeth removal is a delicate procedure and must only be performed by an experienced, well-trained, and specialized dentist in oral surgeries. At Smalto Dental Clinic, our team has the expertise and experience to ensure that tooth extraction is performed safely and efficiently.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Before undergoing oral surgery, ask your oral surgeon any questions you may have to ensure that you fully understand the procedure and what to expect during and after the surgery. Here are some questions to ask:

    • What type of anesthesia will be used?
    • What are the risks and potential complications?
    • How long will the procedure take, and what should I expect during the surgery?
    • What should I do to prepare for the surgery, including medications & diet?
    • What can I expect in terms of pain or discomfort after the surgery?
    • What types of activities should I avoid during the recovery period?
    • What steps should I take to care for my mouth and promote healing after the surgery?
    • What signs or symptoms should I watch for that may indicate a problem or complication?

    After oral surgery, it’s important to follow any specific instructions provided by your oral surgeon to ensure proper healing and avoid potential complications. Here are some general “don’ts” to keep in mind after oral surgery:

    • Don’t smoke or use tobacco products, as they can delay healing and increase the risk of infection.
    • Don’t use a straw, as the sucking motion can dislodge the blood clot and delay healing.
    • Don’t eat hard, crunchy, or sticky foods that can irritate the surgical site or damage stitches.
    • Don’t drink alcohol, as it can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of bleeding.
    • Don’t engage in strenuous physical activity or exercise for at least a few days after surgery, as this can increase blood pressure and delay healing.
    • Don’t neglect oral hygiene, but avoid brushing or flossing near the surgical site until instructed to do so by your surgeon.

    Remember to follow any specific instructions provided by your oral surgeon, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions about your post-operative care.

    Your visit to Smalto starts with being greeted by friendly faces in a safe and welcoming environment designed to make you feel safe and relaxed. Our dentists are openly communicative and always happy to answer your questions. We are here to discuss your concerns and help you overcome your fear of dentists.

    Getting a dental implant may take several months to complete. Here are the general steps involved:

    • Consultation and Treatment Plan: Your dentist will evaluate your oral health and develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
    • Tooth Extraction (if needed): If the tooth to be replaced is still present, it may need to be extracted before the implant can be placed.
    • Implant Placement: The implant is placed into the jawbone through a surgical procedure, providing a sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth.
    • Healing and Integration: The implant will need time to heal and integrate with the jawbone.
    • Abutment Placement: Once the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment is placed on top of it, connecting the implant to the replacement tooth.
    • Replacement Tooth Placement: A custom-made replacement tooth (crown) is attached to the abutment.

    Your dentist will monitor your progress and ensure the implant is healing properly. Dental implants can last many years with proper care and provide a natural-looking, long-lasting solution for missing teeth.

    You should plan to rest and limit your activities for at least the first 24 to 48 hours after your surgery. Here are some general guidelines for post-operative care:

    • Rest: Plan to take it easy for the first few days after your surgery. Avoid strenuous physical activity and get plenty of rest to allow your body to heal.
    • Ice: Apply ice packs to your face for 10 to 20 minutes at a time to help reduce swelling and discomfort. Be sure to follow your surgeon’s instructions.
    • Pain management: Your surgeon may prescribe pain medication to help manage any discomfort.
    • Eating: For the first few days after your surgery, stick to soft, easy-to-chew foods and avoid anything crunchy. Avoid alcohol, smoking, and using straws, as these can delay the healing process.
    • Oral hygiene: Follow your surgeon’s instructions, which may include gently rinsing your mouth with salt water or using a special mouthwash to help prevent infection.
    • Follow-up appointments: Be sure to attend any follow-up appointments scheduled by your surgeon to monitor your healing progress.

    Before oral surgery, follow the specific instructions given by your oral surgeon.

    If you are instructed to eat before your surgery, it’s best to stick to light, easily digestible foods that won’t irritate your stomach or cause nausea. Here are some foods you might consider:


    • Clear liquids: Water, clear broth, apple juice, and other clear drinks can help keep you hydrated without filling you up.
    • Soft or mashed foods: Cooked vegetables, mashed potatoes, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, and smoothies can provide some nutrition without being too heavy on your stomach.

    Avoid certain foods: It’s best to avoid foods that are sticky, hard, or crunchy, as these can be difficult to chew and may irritate your mouth or gums. You should also avoid caffeine, alcohol, and carbonated drinks, which can cause dehydration and interfere with anesthesia.

    Oral surgery may be necessary for various reasons, such as severe tooth decay or damage, periodontal disease, misaligned jaws, facial trauma, and impacted wisdom teeth.

    The oral surgeon would probably perform local anesthesia or sedation to minimize discomfort and anxiety during oral surgery. Depending on the dental problem, the surgeon will use specialized tools and techniques to perform the procedure, which may take a few minutes to several hours.
