Oral surgery can sound intimidating, but there's nothing to fear at Bow Tie Dentist. Palm Harbor dentist Dr. Saimon Ramos is a caring and compassionate dentist who will help you get through these procedures with ease, allowing you to just enjoy a perfect and healthy smile again.
Dr. Ramos may or may not recommend oral surgery based on what he finds during your initial consultation appointment. Oral surgery is a serious procedure, and is only recommended when truly necessary.
Every patient is different, so depending on your treatment, healing times can vary. However, most oral surgeries may leave you with some discomfort or pain in the few days following the procedure. During this time, you’ll want to eat only soft foods, and avoid strenuous activities. You’ll probably feel back to normal after a few weeks, but some treatments, like bone grafts and implant placements, require several months of healing time. Dr. Ramos will provide you with detailed information about what to expect from your surgical recovery.
We’re proud to offer a variety of sedation options at Bow Tie Dentist, so during your treatment, you won’t feel a thing. You may experience some discomfort or pain in the days following your procedure, but most of the time over-the-counter medications are enough to make you comfortable. If pain persists or worsens after 72 hours, give us a call at (727) 789-1212 as it may be a sign of infection or other complications.
