What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery is a field of dentistry that includes the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the teeth, gums and jaw. It can include procedures such as tooth extraction, wisdom tooth removal, placement of dental implants or treating severe oral infections.

Here at Cotteswold House Dental Care, we perform these forms of oral surgery routinely using a local anaesthetic. Our highly skilled dentists use the most advanced technology with a high standard of patient care to ensure you always feel at ease when you’re in the dentist’s chair.

How is oral surgery carried out?

When you first visit our surgery, you will see a dentist who will conduct a thorough assessment, check the health of your mouth and teeth and discuss any treatment options using jargon-free language.

If you need oral surgery, our team will discuss your options then arrange an appointment to begin your treatment.

At your next appointment, your dentist will use a very fine needle to inject a local anaesthetic into your mouth. Once your mouth is numb, your dentist will carry out the oral surgery required then when finished, provide after-care advice.

Does oral surgery hurt?
Whether you are having a tooth extraction or placement of dental implants, you will not feel any pain during the procedure due to the local anaesthetic used. You may feel some discomfort shortly afterwards, but this should resolve quickly.
What should I avoid after oral surgery?
To help reduce discomfort or delayed healing, it’s best to avoid foods that are difficult to eat (crunchy, crusty or chewy foods), alcohol, citrus juices and spicy foods.
When can I brush my teeth with toothpaste after an extraction?
It’s always better to be gentle with your mouth after an extraction. Avoid brushing your teeth on the day of the extraction then start brushing the next day. Always be gentle to allow the wound to heal.
How can I help my mouth heal faster after oral surgery?
After 24 hours, you can use a saltwater mouthwash to help promote healing. Use a teaspoon of salt dissolved in a glass of warm water twice per day.
