Common Questions About Oral Surgery

Is there much pain after oral surgery?

The kind of oral surgery you need may affect how much discomfort you feel, but rest assured our goal is always to provide the most worry-free dental care we can. For the majority of our oral surgery procedures, over-the-counter pain relievers will take care of any discomfort. Your dentist can prescribe something stronger to help you through the recovery process if needed.

Does health insurance cover oral surgery?

Generally speaking, health insurance policies are very specific about what they will and won’t cover. It is best to talk to your particular provider to find out if your treatment will be covered and just how much your portion will cost. Bear in mind, we provide a number of flexible payment choices in addition to third-party financing through CareCredit.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

For the first 24 hours after oral surgery, do not exercise at all. Doing excessive activities too fast can actually cause problems and drag out your healing. Overexertion can loosen the blood clot from an extraction location and cause an uncomfortable condition known as a dry socket. After the initial 24 hours, restrict your workout to low-impact activities for several more days.
