The Marvel Dental team offers the latest advances in oral surgery and pain management to optimize each experience and give you the best outcome.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for oral surgery, the Marvel Dental team discusses your dental history, takes X-rays, and examines your teeth and gums. They review your preferences and desired outcome, personalizing each treatment to best match your needs.
To prepare for oral surgery, follow all of Dr. Gazu’s instructions. Avoid food and drinks prior to your scheduled procedure as needed, stop taking certain medications, and avoid smoking. You should also arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery.
Right before oral surgery, you’re given local anesthesia with the option of a sedative to relax you. Dr. Gazu makes an incision to insert dental implants, extract teeth, or repair tissue. The length of time oral surgery lasts depends on the type of procedure you undergo.
She might place gauze in your mouth after extraction to help control bleeding. After the procedure, you rest in a recovery area for a short time.
Have a friend or family member drive you home after oral surgery. Get plenty of rest and follow all post-surgery instructions. You might have to follow a soft-food diet temporarily. Take all medications as prescribed and ice the treatment area. Brush your teeth gently as instructed by the Marvel Dental team until your surgical sites heal.
Attend follow-up appointments as needed. Call the Marvel Dental office if you experience worsening pain or have questions during your recovery.
