Oral Surgery

Oral surgery can provide you with long-lasting relief from pain and improve your oral health.

The term “oral surgery” can refer to any surgical procedure performed on or around the mouth and jaw. There are many different types of oral surgeries. Some surgeries can help to relieve pain or prevent infection, while others repair damage following injury.

Thanks to modern anesthetics, minimally invasive techniques, and the skill of the Solomon Family Dentistry team, oral surgery is safe and generally well-tolerated.

Solomon Family Dentistry offers a full suite of oral surgeries, including:

  • Dental implants
  • Oral biopsies
  • Sinus lifts
  • Bone grafting

The team at Solomon Family Dentistry also performs extractions. If you have an impacted wisdom tooth or a severely decayed or infected tooth, your dentist may recommend pulling it to prevent further complications. 

The only way to know if you’re a good candidate for oral surgery is to make an appointment with the team at Solomon Family Dentistry. Following an oral exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your symptoms, your dentist can recommend a treatment plan that aligns with your unique needs. 


For example, if you crack or chip a tooth and your pulp is exposed, they might recommend a root canal to prevent further damage and infection. On the other hand, if you lose a tooth due to an automobile accident, your dentist might recommend placing one or more dental implants to restore your smile. 

Recovery following oral surgery varies depending on the type of surgery performed. However, it’s perfectly normal to experience some pain, swelling, and general discomfort for 24-48 hours after the procedure. 

Make sure to follow Solomon Family Dentistry’s recovery instructions and take any medications as prescribed. It’s also important to avoid smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol. 

In the first few days following your surgery, your mouth will be tender and swollen. To prevent infection and ease pain, rinse your mouth with warm saltwater. You’ll also need to eat soft foods, including soup, applesauce, and yogurt. 

The team at Solomon Family Dentistry hopes you never have to undergo oral surgery, but if you do, they’re here to help. Call the office nearest you or use the online tool to request your oral surgery consultation today.
