  • How long does an oral surgery take?

    The duration of oral surgery can vary depending on the specific procedure being performed, as well as individual factors such as the complexity of the case and the patient’s overall health.

    Simple procedures such as tooth extractions or dental implant placement may take about 30 minutes to an hour to complete. More complex surgeries, such as jaw realignment or reconstructive procedures, can take several hours or even multiple sessions.

    During your consultation with our oral surgeon at Smile Studio Dental, we will provide you with a detailed overview of the procedure, including an estimated duration. We prioritize patient comfort and safety throughout the surgical process, ensuring that each procedure is performed with precision and care. If you have any concerns or questions about the duration of your oral surgery, please don’t hesitate to discuss them with our team.

  • How long does it take to recover from an oral surgery?

    The recovery time after oral surgery can vary depending on the type of procedure performed, as well as individual factors such as overall health, age, and adherence to post-operative instructions. However, here’s a general overview:

    1. Simple procedures: Most patients can expect to recover within a few days to a week for straightforward procedures like tooth extractions or dental implant placement. You may experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising during this time, which typically subside gradually.
    2. Complex procedures: More extensive surgeries, such as jaw realignment or reconstructive procedures, may require a longer recovery. It’s not uncommon for recovery to take several weeks or even months, depending on the complexity of the surgery and the patient’s individual healing process.

    During the recovery period, following all post-operative instructions provided by your oral surgeon at Smile Studio Dental is important. This may include taking prescribed medications, practicing good oral hygiene, avoiding certain foods, and attending follow-up appointments.

    Additionally, be sure to listen to your body and give yourself plenty of rest and relaxation during the initial stages of recovery. If you experience any unexpected symptoms or have concerns about your recovery progress, don’t hesitate to contact our team for guidance and support.

    Following your surgeon’s recommendations and giving your body time to heal can help ensure a smooth and successful recovery from oral surgery.
