Most dental procedures can be performed with local anesthesia, including fillings, crowns, tooth repairs, preventive dental care and most cosmetic dental procedures. When more invasive oral procedures need to be performed, sedation may be required for the safety of the patient. At Southern Oaks Family Dental Care, we offer oral surgery procedures and safe sedation at our dental center in Baton Rouge, LA.
Oral surgery encompasses many procedures that require tissue, tooth or bone removal, as well as adding medical devices. Since incisions are often needed with oral surgery, most patients are more comfortable under sedation. We ensure that our patients undergoing oral surgery are carefully monitored by our anesthesiologist during the procedure for their safety.
Dental Surgery Procedures
Oral surgery can offer more permanent solutions for certain dental conditions. If you have a diseased tooth that is beyond saving or you want to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant restoration, dental surgery can be the solution. Our experienced dentist and dental team will discuss all your options before recommending oral surgery. We will always discuss conservative treatments before moving on to more invasive procedures. Our oral surgery procedures include:
- Tooth extractions (including wisdom teeth removal)
- Dental implant insertion
- Bone grafting
- Laser surgery
- Root canal therapy
Oral surgery can usually be performed at our dental center. Our dental team will answer all your questions before your procedure and explain what to expect the day of your surgery and for your recovery. Most patients will need a responsible adult to bring them to and from their appointment due to the sedatives used during dental surgery. We will make sure you know how to care for your oral health after your procedure to help you heal and recover faster.
