Oral Surgery

Oral SurgeryAt Smile Hilliard, we always recommend the least invasive and simplest treatments that can effectively address our patients’ oral health concerns. Sometimes, however, oral surgery is still necessary. 

Smile Hilliard patients can enjoy the convenience of receiving surgical treatment for various cosmetic, restorative, and oral health concerns right in our office with Dr. Sanyk. We use some of the most advanced treatment tools, technology, and techniques to ensure our patients experience comfort in care, easy recoveries, and highly successful treatment outcomes.

Dr. Sanyk is highly experienced in performing a variety of soft tissue oral surgeries, including:

The Benefits of Oral Surgery With Our Soft Tissue Laser

Traditional oral surgery procedures require using a scalpel to incise, cut, and remove gum tissue. They also require sutures (stitches) to sew up the incisions for proper healing. As a result, traditional oral surgery results in lots of bleeding, swelling, pain, slow recovery times, and a risk of infection. 

With soft tissue laser surgery, we use a laser light set to a specific level of intensity to perform surgery on a patient’s gums. Soft tissue laser surgery offers many advantages and benefits over traditional surgery, such as:

  • Minimal bleeding
  • Minimal swelling
  • Less pain during recovery
  • Instantly cauterized incisions
  • No need for stitches
  • Significantly less risk of infection
  • Faster healing times

In addition to these benefits, surgical procedures performed with the soft tissue laser typically require no follow-up appointments. 

What To Expect When You Need Oral Surgery

We understand that oral surgery can be stressful. Dr. Sanyk and the entire Smile Hilliard team are always here to answer questions and address your concerns to help put your mind at ease while ensuring you understand your treatment options, the procedure at hand, and what to expect. 

Before Your Procedure

Before your procedure, you will have a consultation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for oral surgery. Dr. Sanyk will then allow you to talk about your upcoming procedure while providing instructions for the day of your surgery appointment. 

During Your Procedure

Every oral surgery involves a slightly different process. However, each appointment begins with administering a local anesthetic to ensure you experience no pain or discomfort during the procedure. 

After Your Procedure

Once your procedure is complete, we will provide you with a thorough list of aftercare instructions. These might include refraining from certain foods and drinks while you heal and oral hygiene recommendations for your recovery. 

Feeling Nervous? Ask About Sedation Dentistry Options

If you have dental anxiety or a fear of visiting the dentist, we don’t want your nerves to keep you from getting the treatment you need to stay healthy and preserve your beautiful smile. This is why we offer sedation dentistry options to our patients. 

If you experience dental anxiety, we can prescribe you an oral sedative medication to take an hour before your appointment. This will help reduce stress leading to your appointment and during oral surgery. For safety, sedation dentistry patients must arrange transportation to and from their appointments. 

Oral Surgery With Advanced Treatment Technology

We offer a variety of in-house oral surgery procedures using advanced treatment technology. If you have a more complex case or require a surgical procedure that Dr. Sanyk does not typically perform, we will refer you to and work closely with an outside specialist to ensure you receive the best dental care possible.

This is hands down the best experience I have ever had at the dentist. Extremely professional and courteous staff. They numbed me for a filling today and I felt no pain at all. They let you pick a show to watch while they work.
