Understanding Oral Surgery

Most people will first experience Oral Surgery as a result of Wisdom Tooth extraction in their late teens or early 20s.

As with any field of medical endeavour, oral surgeries are conducted by highly qualified and extensively trained specialists and like any surgery, recovery time will be needed and the results will vary from case to case.

The following section covers a range of surgeries and provides some general guidelines as to what patients may expect during recovery.

NB: These are guidelines only and are by no means exhaustive. If Oral Surgery has been recommended for you, it is strongly recommended you take the time to research your procedure independently and prepare questions that can be discussed with your specialist.
