What Should Someone Expect After Surgery?
Swelling is actually part of the healing process and is thus normal. It typically increases during the first three days and subsides about a week later. The patient should use cold packs during the first day after the procedure, and they should keep their head elevated during the first three days.
The surgeon will have prescribed pain medication, and the patient should start taking it before the anesthetic completely wears off.
What Is an Impacted Tooth?
An impacted tooth is one that has failed to completely emerge. It may have emerged partially or it may be completely under the gumline. Wisdom teeth and canine teeth are the most commonly affected. Impacted teeth can cause pain or damage to other teeth. Dentists at the surgery clinic will thus often extract them.
What Is A Biopsy?
A biopsy is a surgical procedure in which the oral surgeon excises a piece of tissue to have it examined. The surgeon will often perform a biopsy if they suspect the patient has oral cancer, which can be treated if caught early. The surgeon will usually administer a local anesthetic to numb the area. They will send the tissue to a lab for diagnosis.
