Jaw Surgery in Watertown, NY at Nova Oral Surgery and Dental Implants

Jaw Surgery

Orthognathic surgery, otherwise known as jaw surgery, corrects jawbone irregularities. Jaw surgery involves realignment of the jawbones and can improve the way a person chews, bites, and speaks. This procedure can also correct facial asymmetry, cleft palate, underbites, and overbites. Jaw surgery can also provide relief for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and obstructive sleep apnea.

Wisdom Tooth Removal in Watertown, NY at Nova Oral Surgery and Dental Implants

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Between the ages of 16 and 25, a third set of molars start to erupt in the mouth. These molars are known as wisdom teeth, and they may require removal if they grow at a certain angle toward the second set of molars. Some patients may only require removal of one or two wisdom teeth, all four of them, or none at all. Digital cone beam technology can help us determine the best course of action for removing your wisdom teeth.

Oral Surgery FAQ

Do I Need to Schedule a Consultation for Oral Surgery

Yes, patients interested or in need of oral surgery must first consult with our oral surgeon. A consultation appointment allows us to properly examine your mouth, take digital x-rays, and determine an effective course of treatment.

Does Oral Surgery Hurt?

Administering anesthesia can relieve the pain of oral surgery. Local anesthesia is often used during minor procedures such as dental implant placement. IV sedation and general anesthesia are more commonly used during jaw surgery and wisdom tooth removal.

How Can I Recover After Oral Surgery?

Once anesthesia wears off following oral surgery, it is normal to experience pain, soreness, and discomfort. Talk with your oral surgeon about how to take care of your wounds and apply hot/cold therapy to the affected area. It’s also important to take medication as prescribed by your oral surgeon.

Why Should You Remove Impacted Wisdom Teeth?

Allowing impacted wisdom teeth to grow can eventually cause problems like pain, tooth damage, and other complications.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from Wisdom Tooth Removal?

It can take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks to fully recover from wisdom tooth removal.
