What happens during oral surgery?
What occurs during your oral surgery in Carefree will depend on the type of surgical procedure you need. Based on the circumstances of your condition, Dr. Kuerschner can perform corrective surgery. You may require sedation with local anesthesia, twilight sedation, or general anesthetic. The duration of the surgery itself will also depend on what you need, and the severity of the condition. Before your procedure, Dr. Kuerschner will go over all the details of your surgery and supply you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you avoid infections and speed the recovery process.
Recovery time from oral surgery will vary, but for most oral surgical procedures, you will need just a few days to rest before returning to your regular activities. You may experience some swelling, bleeding, or pain for the first few days after your procedure. Applying an ice pack can help reduce swelling, along with prescribed or over the counter pain medications. Your aftercare instructions will vary based on the circumstances of your procedure.
