What can I expect during oral surgery?

The characteristics of the surgical procedure depend on the type of surgery you undergo. In general, most oral surgery procedures are performed under local anaesthesia or local anaesthesia combined with nitrous oxide sedation.

After surgery, swelling, bruising and soreness in the treated area are likely to occur. The oral surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to take care of yourself at home to prevent any kind of postoperative problem.

Odontostomatological surgery in Rome: is a scalpel always necessary?

No, the scalpel is not always necessary for oral surgery. In some cases, such as tooth extraction, the surgeon may use special tools to remove the tooth without making an incision; in other cases, such as jaw surgery, a scalpel may be needed to make an incision to access the bone.
