Your Path to Smile Recovery: Oral Surgery at DOCS Dental
It’s often the simple things in life that make us smile: a cute pet video, a favorite movie, a joke shared between friends. But what happens when it’s physically uncomfortable to smile? That’s where we come in. Welcome to DOCS Dental, your haven for exceptional dental care, where we address everything from minor dental concerns to complex oral surgeries.
Understanding Oral Surgery
You might be wondering: what exactly is oral surgery? Put simply, oral surgery encompasses surgical interventions in the mouth, teeth, jaws, and facial areas. But there’s no need to be apprehensive about the term “surgery”. This category ranges from procedures as simple as tooth extractions to more involved treatments such as corrective jaw surgery or complex root canals. At DOCS Dental, our mission is to provide quality dental care that meets the diverse needs of our patients, and oral surgery is one of our key specialties.
Identifying When Oral Surgery Becomes Necessary
There are various circumstances that might necessitate oral surgery. If you’re experiencing severe pain in a tooth or a set of teeth, that’s one potential sign. This could be due to an impacted wisdom tooth or deep-rooted infection that simpler dental procedures cannot fully address.
Perhaps you’ve lost a tooth (or teeth) due to an accident, decay, or another cause. In these cases, dental implants, which involve surgically anchoring artificial teeth to your jawbone, may be the most suitable solution. If you have a jaw-related problem, such as misalignment, that affects chewing, speaking, or even breathing, then corrective jaw surgery might be your best bet.
Pricing and Insurance
We believe that top-notch oral care should be within everyone’s reach. Therefore, we strive to offer competitive pricing for our range of oral surgeries. As for insurance, the coverage varies greatly depending on the procedure and your insurance provider. While certain oral surgeries are often covered to some extent, others may not be. We strongly recommend you to check with your insurance provider to understand the specifics of your coverage.
Nevertheless, our friendly staff at DOCS Dental is here to guide you through these potentially tricky waters. We’ll assist you in understanding your insurance benefits, handling claims, and figuring out the costs that you’ll need to cover out-of-pocket. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate financial stress, allowing you to focus solely on your recovery.
Diving into the Types of Oral Surgery
At DOCS Dental, our competent dental surgeons are equipped to provide a wide array of oral surgeries to cater to your needs. Here’s a look at some common types:
- Tooth Extractions: This is perhaps the most well-known oral surgery. Whether it’s a damaged tooth that’s beyond saving or an impacted wisdom tooth causing unbearable pain, our skilled surgeons can help you through the process.
- Dental Implants: If you’ve lost a tooth, it doesn’t mean that your smile has to stay incomplete forever. Dental implants can fill that gap, giving you back your full, radiant smile.
- Corrective Jaw Surgery: This surgery can help rectify issues such as misaligned jaws, improper teeth alignment that braces can’t correct, or other jaw problems that could affect your quality of life.
- Oral Pathology: If you have a lesion, lump, or other suspicious growth in your mouth, our surgeons can remove it and send it for biopsy to rule out or confirm oral cancer.
Personalized Treatment Options
At DOCS Dental, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we understand that each patient has unique needs, and that’s why we kick things off with a comprehensive consultation. Our experienced oral surgeons will assess your oral health, review your medical history, and discuss your concerns. They will then formulate a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your needs. And don’t worry — our team will guide you through the entire process, answering all your questions and ensuring your comfort every step of the way.
