Frequent questions about

Oral surgery

What is the most common oral surgery procedure?

One of the most common and commonly known oral surgeries is the extraction of wisdom teeth, which is generally performed between the ages of 18 and 22; although there are cases where it is necessary to extract them before or others where it is done later.

Dental implant treatments or bone regeneration are procedures that Dr. Tomás Hernán and his team perform on a regular basis with training and experience that accompany a work dynamic that seeks the best result for each patient.

Why do I need oral surgery?

There are a multitude of pathologies that may make it necessary to perform oral surgery, although as we have commented before, the extraction of wisdom teeth and the placement of implants are some of the most frequent.

Likewise, as a complement to certain orthodontic treatments, it may be necessary to expose or extract included canines as well as the removal of oral braces.

Sometimes, in order to place dental implants, it may be necessary to carry out previous or simultaneous interventions to regenerate the lost bone, such as maxillary sinus elevation, guided bone regeneration or bone grafts.

How is oral surgery performed?

Although the term surgery can make us think of a hospital admission, general anesthesia and a long recovery period, today, with existing techniques and thanks to minimally invasive surgery; The vast majority of oral surgeries and dental implant procedures are performed in the dental clinic, in an office, and under local anesthesia.

It is extremely important to put yourself in the hands of qualified and experienced professionals. Dr. Tomás Hernán is a Doctor of Dentistry, Magister in Oral Surgery from the Complutense University of Madrid and has more than 15 years of experience in his private practice and as an Assistant Dentist of the Stomatology Service of the Gregorio Marañón General University Hospital with thousands of oral surgery interventions behind your back, both under local anesthesia and under general anesthesia.

How is the recovery after an intervention of Oral Surgery?

It is Dr. Tomás Hernán who will indicate in a personalized way, and depending on the complexity of your case and the necessary surgical procedure, how the evolution will be in the days after the intervention; although, in general, the evolution is good and only requires basic care and pharmacological treatment.

It is extremely important that you, as a patient, follow all the indications and the prescribed treatment to the letter to ensure the success of the intervention.

The consumption of tobacco or alcohol significantly worsens the evolution, preventing proper healing of the tissues.

Especially useful is the application of local cold, according to the indications of Dr. Tomás Hernán, in the first 48-72 hours to avoid the appearance of pain or excessive inflammation.
