      Surgery That Will Make You Smile

      Gentle Wisdom Teeth Surgery That Will Make You Smile

      Most people need their wisdom teeth (third molars) removed by early adulthood. Even if they aren’t causing you any pain, impacted wisdom teeth often lead to further issues and infections. We know the idea of having any kind of surgery can be a cause of anxiety. Our compassionate oral surgeons at Simply Beautiful Smiles will put your surgery concerns quickly at ease. With options such as sedation dentistry available, your oral surgery will be as stress-free and painless as possible. We have over 25 locations sprinkled across Central and Southern New Jersey, Eastern Pennsylvania, and Northern Delaware, so finding an SBS practitioner close to home shouldn’t be difficult. We urge you to reach out to us with any questions or to schedule a consultation with our skilled oral surgeons today. You’re in excellent hands!

      Oral Surgery and Wisdom Teeth

      From Bone Grafting to Dental Implants,
      We Do It All

      While wisdom teeth extraction is necessary for many patients, it isn’t the only type of oral surgery we provide at Simply Beautiful Smiles. Our oral surgeons provide numerous surgical procedures, including:

      Wisdom teeth removal is probably the most common – and necessary – form of oral surgery. If not addressed, impacted wisdom teeth often cause other issues such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint syndrome) pain, dysfunction of the jaw, gum infections, and even cysts or tumors. Your mouth can fit 28 teeth comfortably, so when your wisdom teeth (third molars) come in last, it can create problems. Overcrowding and infections around impacted wisdom teeth can result in tooth decay and eventual bone loss. Wisdom teeth extraction is an outpatient procedure that usually takes less than two hours.

      If you’re missing teeth, dental implants may be the restorative solution you’re seeking to deliver a healthy, beautiful smile for life. The American Dental Association endorses two forms of implants, endosteal implants, and subperiosteal implants, with both options providing strong, lasting results. Dental implants can restore your smile, chewing power, and confidence. Others won’t be able to tell you have them, and they can be brushed and flossed just like your natural teeth.

      In some cases, a procedure known as a bone graft may be needed before dental implant surgery. We recommend this procedure when a patient’s jawbone is too thin or soft to support the implants. Bone grafting involves taking bone from a tissue bank or elsewhere in the body and adding it to your jawbone to promote bone regeneration. To ensure the success of your dental implants, our oral surgeons may address the need for a bone graft. However, it’s nothing to worry about, as it’s a standard procedure.

      Oral surgery may be necessary to correct facial injuries, jaw misalignments, sleep apnea, diseased or impacted teeth, or cleft lip/cleft palate and other conditions caused by genetics. Whatever type of oral surgery you require, you can rest assured you’ll receive the individualized care and attention you deserve when you visit one of the surgeons in the Simply Beautiful Smiles network.

      What to Expect Before and After an Oral Surgery at SBS

      From your initial consultation to the follow-up care after your oral surgery, we’re committed to the highest standards in inpatient care. During your consultation, we’ll examine your x-rays and mouth. We’ll answer any questions about your upcoming procedure and discuss our available anesthesia options, which ensure your comfort during the surgery. We’ll provide you with detailed instructions to make your wisdom teeth recovery as pleasant as possible, including the best foods to eat after oral surgery. You’ll need to take it easy and avoid certain foods or physical activity after your surgery. Cold or hot compresses may alleviate pain and swelling. We may also prescribe antibiotics or pain medications. It will be important to keep your mouth clean, brushing, and rinsing carefully. You should be able to resume your normal diet and activities within a few days, but this will vary by patient and procedure.
