Dental oral surgery encompasses a wide range of treatments and procedures. The most common dental oral surgery procedure is tooth extraction. Dr. Cetel typically performs tooth extraction to remove a broken or severely decaying tooth surgically.
Other common dental oral surgery procedures include wisdom teeth removal and placing dental implants.
A tooth may require extraction for several reasons, including:
Dr. Cetel provides three types of anesthesia and will decide which form is most suitable for your needs and procedure.
Commonly referred to as novocaine, local anesthesia is one of the most common forms of anesthesia used in dental surgery. It numbs pain by blocking the nerves that sense and transmit pain. Local anesthesia can come in the form of a topical application or an injection.
Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a safe and effective option when undergoing oral surgery. The purpose of nitrous oxide is to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your procedure but not put you sleep.
Dr. Cetel and his staff of specialists will work with you to decide upon the best course of treatment for your dental issue. You’ll receive a comprehensive exam and extensive post-op care. Dr. Cetel will even call you after your treatment to ensure you’re healing properly.
