Solve Dental Problems With Surgical Procedures

Getting common oral surgery procedures in our office can save you time, hassle, and expense. From wisdom teeth removal to treatments that prepare you for dental implants, we offer:

  • Bone Grafts — Bone loss happens for many reasons, including gum disease, loss of teeth, developmental defects, or even a blow to your jaw. Dr. Patten can boost your bone density with a bone graft.
  • Ridge Augmentation – Ridge augmentation can strengthen your jaw, making you a better candidate for dental implants.
  • Tooth Extractions – There are many reasons teeth may need to be extracted to preserve your oral health. No matter why they need to go, Dr. Patten can comfortably remove any number of teeth. Even wisdom teeth aren’t a problem!

Our staff has lots of experience in keeping you relaxed during oral surgery. Cozying up with a blanket and pillow and squeezing a stress ball can help. While we’ll thoroughly numb your mouth with local anesthesia before your treatment begins, you may want dental sedation, too. You can choose from two different kinds:

  • Inhaled sedation, also called laughing gas
  • Oral sedation you’ll take as a pill

Oral surgery in Sand Springs can be a smooth and relaxing experience. Call 918-205-4386 for a consultation or schedule online. You’ll find us at 24 E 34th St. S.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

Does oral surgery cause jaw pain?

Many people do feel soreness after oral surgery, but that fades as you recover. If anything, oral surgery is done to alleviate pain and long-term oral health problems. Our dental professionals will be happy to advise you on the best way to recover from your surgery so you can get back to feeling like yourself as soon as possible.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

For the first 24 hours after oral surgery, you shouldn’t attempt any sort of exercise. Doing too much too soon can cause problems. For example, strenuous exercise could loosen the blood clot on a tooth extraction site and cause a painful dry socket. After the first day, limit your exercise to low-impact activities for a few more days to be on the safe side.

When is oral surgery covered by insurance?

Your dental insurance or medical insurance may cover a portion of your oral surgery. We recommend you check with your individual carriers to find out what they will and won’t pay for before you have any work done. That way there aren’t any big surprises in store for you. As a convenience, we offer third-party financing such as CareCredit.
