You might feel a little hesitant to go through a surgery when the dentist suggests it for a problem in your mouth. We know that surgery should not be taken quickly, but you don't have to worry.
Dental surgery is a broad term that involves simple tooth extraction to a complicated method such as dental implant surgery. Dental surgery can improve the function and the appearance of your smile.
A dentist can only perform a dental surgery. They are the specialist who conducts diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea and oral cancer.
Usually, people will not know that they need a dental surgery. This is one of the purposes why you have to visit your dentist regularly. During your checkup, your dentist will evaluate and identify problems that may require surgery. If it is possible, you can ask your dentist how long the surgery will take and what type of medications will be involved. Also, you need to figure out if you need to avoid any foods and how to handle the pain and how to take care of the wound.
