Types of Oral Surgery

No matter your oral surgery needs in the St. Louis area, Dr. Martin is the dentist for you. He will diagnose and then create and follow a personalized, gradual plan all through the surgical process. He has extensive experience in many types of oral surgery, including:

  • All on 4 — calls for using four dental implants to build a full, permanent dental bridge to give you the smile you want without using dentures. Typically finished in three oral surgery appointments, including one or two consultations and surgery.
  • Crowns and bridges — come in different styles, including full and partial, and are finished with a set of zirconium or porcelain crowns. Typically created and implanted in two oral surgery sessions, but can rely on a patient’s oral health.
  • Restoration of dental implants — titanium pieces implanted into a patient’s jawbone during oral surgery to offer support and a conventional appearance. Ideal for patients missing teeth because of gum disease or an accident and typically completed in as little as one or two sessions.
  • Endodontics/Root canal therapyEndodontics deals with the dental pulp or soft issues inside a tooth. Dr. John Martin’s oral surgery team is in its fourth decade providing endodontics and painless and effective root canal therapy, which are often finished in as little as two appointments.
  • Full mouth rehabilitation — the procedure of using different materials and methods (most often titanium implants, porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers) to reestablish a patient’s smile. Calls for several serious oral surgerys and multiple appointments.
  • Implant supported dentures — are a more permanent solution than conventional dentures and typically take at least two surgeries to finish.
  • TMJ therapy — deals with your temporomandibular joints, which act as hinges in your jaw. Most routine symptoms include clicking or popping sound when opening your jaw, face pain, jaw pain, or pain when chewing. Dr. Martin’s oral surgery team can assess your symptoms and design a personalized treatment plan in one or two sessions.
  • Tooth colored fillings — assist in achieving a flawless and natural looking smile by seamlessly blending in with the look of your existing teeth. Often completed in one session.
  • Wisdom teeth removal — a necessary evil for most people. Dr. Martin provides wisdom teeth extraction for patients of all ages in one visit.

Preparing For Oral Surgery

Much like a procedure on any other part of the body, oral surgery requires some preparation. The Martin Dental & Associates team has developed a protocol to follow in order to put yourself in the best possible frame of mind for oral surgery. Be sure to:

  • Be sure that your living space is neat and clean, so that you are comfortable for at least a few days, if needed.
  • Incline your bed, so that you can be comfortable and alleviate stress on your mouth.
  • Arrange for transportation following your oral surgery.
  • Follow your oral surgery treatment plan from Martin Dental & Associates. Dr. Martin will have you refrain from eating or drinking anything for an allotted time prior to your surgery.

After your oral surgery, the Martin Dental & Associates team feels it is best to adhere to the following:

  • Do not smoke or drink alcohol after oral surgery. These will slow the healing process.
  • Rather than brushing your teeth, rinse your mouth with salt water every few hours
  • Give yourself a break. Recovery from oral surgery takes time.
  • Follow up with Martin Dental & Associates. Dr. Martin has a postsurgery plan in place just for you.
