Oral Surgery Campbelltown

Oral Surgery Campbelltown

Step into the captivating blend of science and art that defines oral surgery—a world where surgical precision and dental finesse converge. Beyond the routine check-ups, oral surgery is a beacon of transformative care for complex issues within our mouths and faces. From freeing trapped wisdom teeth to crafting radiant smiles, oral surgeons employ skill, innovation, and compassion to reshape the possibilities of oral health.

Join us as we journey into this world of precision, where science and art unite to reshape lives—one procedure at a time.

What is Oral Surgery

Oral surgery represents a specialised field within dentistry dedicated to performing surgical procedures in the oral cavity, jaw, and facial areas. Unlike routine dental care, oral surgery tackles a broad spectrum of complex issues, from addressing impacted teeth to treating facial trauma.

At its core, oral surgery involves various procedures, including the extraction of impacted wisdom teeth, management of oral cysts, corrective jaw surgeries, and reconstructive procedures for facial issues. These interventions aim not only to enhance oral health but also to improve overall facial function and appearance.

At Bradbury Dental Surgery, we recognise the significance of oral surgery in maintaining and restoring oral health. As general dentists, we offer fundamental oral surgery services such as tooth extractions, dental implants, and wisdom teeth removal. However, we adopt a collaborative approach in cases demanding specialised attention, working closely with skilled professionals to provide personalised solutions for each patient.

Oral Surgery Services at Bradbury Dental Surgery

As general dentists at Bradbury Dental Surgery, we are dedicated to delivering comprehensive oral surgery services that go beyond routine dental care. Our expertise encompasses a diverse range of essential surgical procedures to address various dental issues and promote oral health. Our specialized services include, but are not limited to:

Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction is a necessary procedure our skilled dental professionals perform to address severely damaged or decayed teeth. When a tooth is extensively decayed, fractured, or beyond repair due to infection, tooth extraction is necessary to alleviate pain, prevent further damage, and maintain oral health. Our experienced team ensures a comfortable and efficient process, guiding patients through the procedure and post-extraction care.

Dental Implants

As a significant aspect of oral surgery, dental implants are ideal for replacing missing teeth and restoring both function and aesthetics. Our dental implant procedures involve the surgical placement of artificial tooth roots into the jawbone, offering a solid foundation for durable and natural-looking replacement teeth. Our skilled team carefully assesses each patient’s unique needs, ensuring a successful implant placement and helping patients regain confidence in their smiles.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom tooth removal is a standard oral surgical procedure to manage complications associated with third molars. These wisdom teeth often cause impaction, misalignment, and infection. Our dental professionals specialize in safely and efficiently removing wisdom teeth, preventing potential oral health issues and preserving the alignment of existing teeth. Through personalized care and attention, we make sure our patients experience a smooth and comfortable wisdom tooth removal process.

IV Sedation

Experience the utmost comfort and relaxation during complex oral surgical procedures at Bradbury Dental Surgery as we introduce you to the benefits of specialized IV sedation. Our advanced sedation solution is tailored to alleviate anxiety and ensure a stress-free dental journey. Under the care of our skilled professionals, you can rest assured that your treatment will be conducted with the highest level of precision and expertise, all while you remain at ease.

Navigating Risks and Complications in Oral Surgery

Before embarking on your oral surgery journey, being well-informed about potential risks and complications associated with these procedures is crucial. While oral surgery is generally safe and effective, we believe in providing you with a comprehensive understanding to make confident decisions about your dental care.

Identifying Potential Risks

  • Infection: While uncommon, there is a risk of infection following oral surgery. If you experience increased pain, swelling, or discharge, contact our Bradbury Dental Surgery team promptly.
  • Injury to Adjacent Teeth: In rare cases, neighbouring teeth may sustain an accidental injury during the surgical procedure.
  • Dry Socket: After tooth extractions, the dry socket may occur if the blood clot in the socket is dislodged or dissolves prematurely.
  • Numbness: Although temporary numbness is common and typically resolves independently, rare permanent numbness in the lips, tongue, or chin may occur due to nerve injury during surgery.
  • Tooth Root Fragments: In some instances, small fragments of tooth roots may be left behind during extraction. We will promptly address any such situations to ensure your continued well-being.
  • Sinus Problems: There is a small risk of sinus-related complications for procedures involving the upper jaw.

At Bradbury Dental Surgery, your safety and comfort are paramount. We encourage you to follow the post-operative instructions provided closely.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to recover from oral surgery?

The recovery period after oral surgery can vary depending on the type of procedure performed. At Bradbury Dental Surgery, our experienced team will provide you with a thorough understanding of what to expect during the recovery process. In most cases, patients can expect a recovery period of a few days to a week. However, this timeline may differ based on the complexity of the surgery and your healing ability.

During your pre-operative consultation, our skilled oral surgeons will discuss your procedure’s expected recovery time. We will also provide detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery. Following these instructions diligently is essential to promote healing and achieve the best possible outcomes.

Will I need someone to accompany me for oral surgery?

For specific oral surgery procedures, especially those involving sedation, it is recommended to have a responsible adult accompany you to your appointment. Your safety and comfort are of utmost importance to us at Bradbury Dental Surgery, and having someone by your side can provide crucial support during and after the procedure.

If you undergo sedation during the oral surgery, you may experience drowsiness or temporary impairment, making it unsafe to drive yourself home. Having a companion with you ensures a safe journey back home, allowing you to focus on your recovery without worry.

What payment options are available for oral surgery at Bradbury Dental Surgery?

At Bradbury Dental Surgery, we offer various payment options, including cash and credit cards, for your convenience. Additionally, we accept different dental insurance plans and skillfully handle insurance claims to help you maximize your coverage.

Furthermore, we understand that some patients may prefer alternative payment methods or require additional financial assistance for extensive procedures. We are pleased to offer options like ZipPay and Afterpay, allowing you to split your dental expenses into manageable instalments.

For patients considering comprehensive dental treatment plans, we proudly participate in the National Dental Plan (NDP), offering interest-free payment plans for greater accessibility and affordability.

What are the potential risks or complications associated with oral surgery?

Oral surgery, like any medical procedure, carries potential risks and complications. These may include infection, nerve injury, bleeding, and other rare issues. Our team of skilled oral surgeons will conduct a thorough consultation before the procedure, during which we will discuss the potential risks and address any concerns you may have.

Will I experience swelling and discomfort after oral surgery?

It is expected to experience some swelling and discomfort after oral surgery. At Bradbury Dental Surgery, our team will provide you with personalized care instructions to manage these symptoms effectively. These may include using ice packs and taking prescribed pain medications as needed.

Is IV sedation safe at Bradbury Dental Surgery?

Yes, IV sedation is considered safe when administered by our trained professionals. Our experienced team carefully adjusts the dosage to ensure comfort and safety throughout the procedure. Before your surgery, we will review your medical history to determine if IV sedation is a suitable option for you.

Can I drive myself home after receiving IV sedation?

No, it would be best if you did not drive yourself home after receiving IV sedation. The effects of IV sedation can last for a few hours, and it impairs your ability to operate a vehicle safely. Patient safety is our utmost concern at Bradbury Dental Surgery, and we strongly recommend having a responsible adult accompany you to drive you home after the procedure.

Even though you may feel fine after the surgery, the sedative effects can linger, and it is essential to avoid operating machinery or engaging in activities that require full alertness until the effects have worn off completely.

Having a companion to take care of you after the procedure will ensure a safe journey home and provide you with the necessary support during your recovery.

How soon can I return to normal activities after oral surgery?

The timeframe for returning to normal activities after oral surgery will depend on the specific procedure performed and your healing process.

Patients can often resume light activities within a day or two following oral surgery. However, more strenuous exercises, such as heavy lifting or intense physical exertion, should be avoided for a few days or as advised by our oral surgeons. This precaution prevents any strain on the surgical site and allows for proper healing.
