Frequently Asked Questions
What are the most common types of oral surgery?
Oral surgeons perform many different surgical procedures in and around the mouth and the jaw. However, the most common are often extraction of the wisdom teeth, dental implants, bone grafting, and corrective jaw surgeries.
Is an oral surgeon a dentist?
Yes. An oral surgeon is a dentist who specializes in oral surgery.
Is oral surgery considered major surgery?
Just like in the medical field, oral surgery can involve both minor surgeries, such as those that are very routine, and major surgeries, such as those that are more labor-intensive and complex.
Do you feel any pain during oral surgery?
No, you will not feel any pain or discomfort during oral surgery. At Rio Grande Oral Surgery, your comfort is our priority and that’s why we offer different levels of anesthesia in our office, including local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, IV sedation, and general anesthesia.
How long does it take to get dental implants?
The process of getting dental implants involves patience. If your bone density is not where it needs to be to secure the implant, you will have to undergo bone grafting - and will need to wait until the bone is ready to proceed. Then, once the artificial root is implanted, it needs to have time to fuse together with the bone before the abutment and crown can be attached.
Although the process may take some time, the lifelong benefit you will receive from your dental implant is well worth the wait.
