If you have endured facial trauma, you may require oral surgery to correct any damage. Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons are specially trained to perform all types of surgery that may be needed after facial trauma has occurred. Facial trauma can be repaired in a local hospital or outpatient surgery center. Some types of facial trauma that may require surgery include facial lacerations, knocked-out teeth, broken or fractured cheek, nose, jaw, or eye socket.
Oral pathology is the specialty that identifies and treats diseases of the mouth and maxillofacial region. Diagnosis is completed through radiographic, microscopic, biochemical, and other in-office examinations. Oral pathologists provide biopsy services for dentists and offer clinical diagnoses based on their findings. Some of the diseases that oral pathologists diagnose include mouth and throat cancer, salivary gland disorders, ulcers, and others.
Frequently Asked Questions
Oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure that involves the manipulation of the tissues in your mouth. For your oral surgery procedure, IV anesthesia is an option for our patients offered by our dentist. Some examples of oral surgery include tooth extractions, dental implant placement, and a variety of other surgical procedures.
While complications from oral surgeries are rare, whenever a patient undergoes surgery, there are some risks involved. Any complications that may arise are usually due to the pre-operative general health status of the patient.
Choosing highly trusted and experienced dentists, such as Dr. Villalobos, will help to ensure that proper screening measures are taken into account before your operation. This helps prevent any complications that may arise during the procedure as well as during the healing process.
After your surgery, you’ll need around 48 to 72 hours to rest and begin your recovery process. These first few days are crucial to your recovery because your body is working on making repairs. It’s best to avoid any strenuous activities that will hinder your recovery and always follow instructions from Dr. Villalobos carefully. Proper care after your procedure is essential to avoid any complications and heal as quickly as possible.
