Wisdom teeth extraction

Tooth extractions are one of the most common oral surgeries, especially wisdom teeth extraction.

In this procedure, one or the four teeth are extracted from the back of the mouth. When these teeth start to develop without enough space to emerge they can cause pain, inflammation, infection, push the surrounding teeth affecting occlusion, or even cause problems in the jaw joint. Wisdom teeth extraction surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the complexity of each patient’s case.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the best ways to restore missing teeth, they offer natural looking and very good long-term results. In this surgery, your dentist must place titanium implants in the jawbone that can hold artificial teeth made out of porcelain, zirconia, or other materials. Depending on the number of missing teeth that the patient needs to replace, our specialist Dr. Xochipilli Bojorquez may suggest a procedure such as All-On-4, which allows restoring the whole upper or lower teeth by placing just 4 implants.

Bone grafts

A bone graft is a surgical procedure to reestablish jaw bone in patients who have lost its density for some reason. This surgery is usually part of the treatment of dental implants because it is common for patients with missing teeth to suffer from the recession of the dental bone.

In this surgery, your doctor must remove a piece of bone from another part of your body and graft it in the jaw section that needs it. This surgery has a healing process of about 6 months and then the dentist can place a dental implant.

How to prepare for the surgery

Since each of the oral surgery procedures is different, the preparation can vary. However, these tips will help you prepare in most cases.

Ask your doctor about the healing process: In all oral surgeries, the patient must have rest for at least the first 24 hours. Depending on the type of surgery, the rest should be for a few days or a few weeks. Be sure to ask your dentist so you can organize yourself if you will need to miss work or school.

Quit smoking: Smoking can complicate maxillofacial surgery and recovery, so if you smoke, it is best not to do so for at least a few weeks before and after the procedure. Ideally, after such surgery, the patient should completely stop smoking.

Ask somebody to come to the dental center with you: After the surgery, you will need somebody to drive you home, so ask a friend or family member to come with you to Los Algodones. Another option will be to stay in town for one night after the treatment; let our staff know if you’re interested in doing this so we can advise you on the best lodging options.

Ask your dentist if you can eat before the procedure: In some cases, you will have to fast before the procedure, ask your doctor if that will be necessary and what should you eat the night before. Also, if you take some medications, ask if you can take them before the surgery.

  • Your doctor will prescribe you some medications to relieve pain such as ibuprofen; you may also need to take antibiotics to prevent infection.
  • Eat only soft foods for the first 48 hours after surgery. Avoid eating food or drinks that are too hot or too cold.
  • To relieve pain and reduce swelling, ice the outside of the jaw.
  • Avoid strenuous activities, don’t lift weights, and sleep with your head slightly raised to avoid bleeding.
  • Keep the oral hygiene to avoid infections or complications, but for the first few days do not vigorously rinse your mouth or touch the wound with the toothbrush.
