Oral surgery at our office
When patients need minor surgical procedures, Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros may be able to assist without referring patients to other providers in the Eugene, OR area. Oral surgery solutions can be performed right in our practice with the care of our team and the use of proper anesthetics and sedation.
What is oral surgery?
Oral surgery can involve many different techniques and procedures depending on the patient’s concern. Oral surgery is a surgical procedure performed by a dentist or an oral surgeon .
What procedures can be performed at Distinctive Dentistry?
Some of the treatments provided at our practice in the area of oral surgeries include:
- Root canal therapy (endodontic treatment)
- Simple and surgical tooth extractions
- Bone grafting
- Dental implant placement and restoration
How would I know if I need oral surgery?
Drs. Robert Gemmell and Ty Jaros can evaluate a patient to determine their unique needs. A tooth that is severely damaged and beyond repair may need to undergo extraction, while other times, it may be saved with root canal therapy. Patients who are restoring their smile after tooth loss may need dental implant surgery, during which the dentist will place the metal restoration into the bone of the jaw to help solidify it in place. Alternatively, patients who do not have enough bone available for dental implants might consider procedures such as bone grafting to build up the bone of the jaw and prepare it for placement. All of these services are provided by our team.
Are oral surgeries painful?
We understand that patients might visit Distinctive Dentistry and hesitate to proceed with specific oral surgeries for fear of pain and discomfort. We offer several sedation methods to put patients at ease before and during their appointment. We also use local anesthetics to eliminate pain, even for more minor procedures such as dental fillings. Patients can also manage any discomfort following their procedure with over-the-counter or prescription pain medications.
How long does oral surgery take?
The length of surgery depends greatly on the procedure being performed and is discussed before making the oral surgery appointment.
