Receive the Dental Surgery Your Mouth Needs

Your dentist can prevent consequences by removing teeth too damaged to save or by performing procedures to restore damaged gum tissue or bone. You can receive:

  • Tooth Extractions – Whether teeth need to be removed due to disease or to make room for a restoration like dentures, your dentist can comfortably extract them.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal – We can also handle most wisdom teeth extractions, which can help prevent crowding and make it easier to keep teeth clean and disease-free.
  • Bone Grafts – When you lose teeth, you also lose their roots. Over time this results in bone loss. A graft will restore lost bone mass, making it easier for you to receive dental implants.

We use benzocaine to numb your mouth. It ensures you won’t feel a sting while receiving local anesthesia. You also have the option of receiving laughing gas. It takes effect quickly when inhaled through a small mask. It wears off fast, too and doesn’t leave the lingering grogginess you’d experience with other forms of sedation.

Sometimes the best way to save your smile is with oral surgery in Rockport. To schedule your comfortable procedure, call Sabal Dental at 361-209-8609 or schedule online.

Common Questions About Oral Surgery

Is there much pain after oral surgery?

The type of oral surgery you have will ultimately determine just how much discomfort you feel, but our objective is always to provide the most comfortable dental care we can. For the majority of the oral surgery treatments we perform, non-prescription pain relievers will handle any discomfort. Your dentist can prescribe something stronger to help you through the healing if required.

Does health insurance cover oral surgery?

Generally speaking, medical insurance policies are particular about what they will and won’t cover. It is best to talk to your specific provider to confirm if your treatment will be covered and how much your portion will cost. Bear in mind, we offer a number of versatile payment choices in addition to financing through CareCredit.

When can I exercise after oral surgery?

For the first day after your oral surgery, you should not exercise at all. Doing too much too quickly can actually cause problems and extend your recovery. Overexertion can loosen the blood clot from an extraction site and cause dry socket, a painful condition. After the first 24 hours, restrict your workout to low-impact activities for several more days.
