Dentist prepping for surgery at Rai Oral Surgery & Dental Implants in Virginia Beach, VAOral surgery is a branch of dentistry dealing with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders, diseases, and deformities of the oral cavity. A dentist or an oral surgeon performs oral surgery. Your dentist will decide if you need a simple oral surgery or a complex oral surgery, depending on the diagnosis of your oral cavity issue.

Simple Oral Surgery

Oral surgery is considered simple when it is done without making any incisions or using special techniques. A simple oral surgery would be suitable for less complex tooth extractions, such as the extraction of a tooth that is still visible above the gumline. A simple oral surgery is also considered simple when it can be performed by a family or a general dentist.

An oral surgery is also considered simple when you are not expected to observe any care procedures after the procedure. For example, you usually return to your normal life almost immediately.

About Complex Oral Surgery

When your oral surgeon determines that your dental issues are complicated, you are sure to need complex oral surgery. For example, if your dentist determines that you have entangled roots, impacted teeth, or when your sinuses are too large, you must undergo a complex procedure to restore the function in these different parts of your oral cavity.

Generally, oral surgery is considered complex when the oral surgeon has to use specialized equipment or special treatment methods and make incisions in order to correct existing oral cavity issues. After the procedure, your oral surgeon will also give you specific instructions on how to care for the surgical area. You must adhere to these instructions to the letter if you to want get optimal results.

A simple oral surgery is the procedure you will need when you need to have your tooth extracted. As long as the tooth is still above the gum line and it is not too broken, your oral surgeon does not need to make any incisions.
