Foods to Keep Around During Oral Surgery Recovery
Posted on 8/20/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
There are many steps to a successful oral surgery procedure. All of them play a role in the success or failure of the surgery. Getting an early diagnosis of the problem and preparing for the surgery is the first step. Going through the procedure is the second step. The last step is going through the recovery. You do not want to do everything right before and during the surgery only to ruin it by following a bad diet during the recovery. Keeping these foods ready is a key to a successful recovery from oral surgery. Consider These Foods During the initial stage of recovery, it is best to turn to foods that will not put any stress on the surgical site. Many people will follow a liquid diet during this time. Foods can include broths, shakes and smoothies. It is best to avoid foods high in acid or sugar. Getting foods that are high in vitamins and anti-oxidants can help with the recovery. As you move further away from the oral surgery, you can add other soft foods to your diet. Oatmeal, mashed potatoes, yogurt, Jell-O and pudding are some of the foods that can provide your body with the sustenance, vitamins and minerals it needs. The more time that goes by, the more foods you can add to your diet. It is important to start adding foods that require a little more chewing to exercise the jaw and gums. It is never a good idea to follow a soft food diet for a long period of time because of the damage that this type of diet can cause. No matter what types of food you choose to eat after oral surgery, it is important to think about how eating them makes you feel. If you choose a food that causes pain or discomfort, you may want to wait before trying it again. Healing from oral surgery takes time and effort to get the best results. For more information about this or any other oral health issue, contact our office to schedule an appointment....

Following an Auto Accident, We Need to Check Your Mouth if You Have Pain
Posted on 8/10/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
If you have been in an auto accident and you have mouth pain, then it is important that you speak with us as soon as possible. We can check to find out if there is any trauma that should be taken care of due to the collision you were in. Auto accidents happen regularly, and many people do not think that their oral health matters, but if you are experiencing any issues because of it, it is important to speak with our dental professionals so that we can provide the best exam to ensure nothing has happened. Reasons and Benefits to Seek Help from Our Office After an Auto Accident After you've been in an auto accident, it is important that you speak with our dental professionals and get an exam if you're experiencing any sort of pain or discomfort in your mouth area. Whether it is something bigger like your jaw, or something more minor like if you have bitten your tongue, this is important. Most people who see an accident coming, clench up. This sometimes includes their jaw, which can lead to problems. One of the biggest benefits is that you can seek out help and payment for the oral issues you're experiencing if you have them checked out right away. Additionally, you will be able to reduce the amount of pain you're in, which is a big consideration, as no one wants to live with oral pain. If you have a broken tooth or other issue, this can be taken care of so you can smile without feeling self-conscious about your broken smile that didn't get fixed. Allow us to help. Give us a call and speak with us today regarding the auto accident you have been in and we will fit you in with an emergency appointment to get the help you need. We can document everything, if needed, and ensure that you get the care you need. Everyone should smile with confidence and ease, even after an auto accident happens....

It Is Best to Turn to Us When You Need Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Posted on 7/20/2019 by Andrew Zeiger
When you're told that your wisdom teeth need to come out, you probably expect to have that done by a dentist and not by us. After all, removing teeth is something a general dentist does fairly often, while an oral surgeon seems like someone who would only deal with more major procedures. However, there are a few reasons why it's a much better idea to let us remove your wisdom teeth than a general dentist. We're Prepared for Complications While your general dentist may have dealt with their fair share of unexpected complications, we're very familiar with everything that could go wrong during a procedure. One of the main points of training that we go through to become oral surgeons is wisdom teeth removal. We are experts in the full range of necessary extraction procedures and have the knowledge to quickly deal with anything unexpected. You can rest assured that you're in the best hands when you're with us. We Offer IV Sedation Another reason why you may want to come to us instead of a dentist is that we offer full IV sedation. This type of sedation is deeper than what most dentists offer. You'll not remember any of the procedure, and you won't be in any pain. We are trained to use IV sedation in our procedures, so you won't have to worry about the sedative wearing off or feeling anything during the surgery. If you know you need to have your wisdom teeth removed, we're here to assist you every step of the way. We will go over the entire procedure, discuss what will occur during the surgery, and answer all of the questions you may have. Give us a call today to schedule a consultation and preliminary exam so we can get the process started....
