How Long Does It Take to Recover from Oral Surgery?
Like the surgery time, recovery varies by procedure. Patients may need to take days off work or school to recover.
Our Wheeling oral surgeon at Northwest Implant Dental Spa provides patients with a recovery timeline and instructions for post-operation care that can include directions for taking antibiotics and pain medication, the types of food to eat, and whether to avoid strenuous physical activity.
Does Oral Surgery Require Anesthesia?
Yes. Depending on the complexity and length of the procedure, patients may receive local or general anesthesia. Local anesthetics numb a targeted area of the mouth, while general anesthetics put patients into a deep sleep.
How Long Does Oral Surgery Take?
The time oral surgery takes will vary by procedure. Generally, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. More complex procedures, such as jaw reconstruction, may require multiple appointments.
