Surgical Procedures - Q&A

by Barry Sporer, DMD, PC

What kinds of surgical procedures does Dr. Sporer perform?

Dr. Sporer is skilled in many types of oral surgery procedures, including bone grafting, complex tooth extractions, wisdom tooth extractions, root canals and treatment of trauma, lesions and other oral and facial growths.

How should I prepare for oral surgery?

Discuss any medical conditions or medication you may be taking in advance of your procedure so Dr. Sporer can determine your risks and provide you with guidance about how and when to take our medications. If you're going to be sedated, you'll need to have someone drive you home after your procedure. Make sure to have someone available to fill any prescriptions for pain relievers, and plan on spending the remainder of the day of your procedure resting.

How long will it take me to recover from oral surgery?

That depends on the type of surgery you have performed. Most procedures involve recovery from a day or two to about a week. During recovery, you'll need to follow specific instructions with regard to the foods you eat and the way you brush or clean the area. If you've had a tooth extracted, you'll have to avoid using straws or exposing the area to any type of suction to prevent the protective clot from dislodging. Dr. Sporer will provide you with complete instructions following your procedure.

How much pain will I have after my surgical procedure?

Advances in surgical techniques have helped reduce pain following oral surgery, and any pain that is experienced can be treated with over-the-counter or prescription medication and application of ice as needed to help reduce inflammation. Dr. Sporer will discuss pain management with you prior to your procedure.
