Although regular checkups can help you avoid many dental issues, there are some issues routine exams can’t help you avoid. You could be in an accident and need oral surgery or have impacted wisdom teeth that need to be removed. Your Minden dentist may also recommend oral surgery if you have crowded teeth. You can also ask to consult an oral surgeon to improve the appearance of your teeth if they’re crooked or broken.

Oral surgeons are dental experts who perform surgical procedures to correct issues affecting your mouth, neck, and head, including issues with your jaw, teeth, and gums. To become dental surgeons, oral surgeons must complete a four-year bachelor’s degree and spend up to six additional years completing graduate studies and residency training.
Reasons to see an oral surgeon
Oral surgeons have specialized training, enabling them to diagnose and treat severe issues. Regular oral surgery services offered in our Minden offices include the following:
Bone grafts: Bone grafts compensate for bone loss and strengthen your jaw
Deformed jaw treatment: Oral surgeons can remove or add bone to correct a deformed jaw. Oral surgeons can also adjust your jaw’s shape.
Oral cancer screening and treatment: Oral surgeons can diagnose and treat oral cancer
Removing teeth: Sometimes, cavities or damage are so severe you must have a tooth removed. Oral surgeons perform these extractions.
Root canal: Oral surgeons can treat infections by performing root canals
Wisdom teeth: Your oral surgeon can remove wisdom teeth before or after they erupt
Dental insurance programs provide the funds you need for essential dental health care services. Insurance covers routine dental care, such as checkups. Still, it may not cover all or any of your expenses for elective dental procedures.
Absolute Dental’s Minden location accepts insurance from many companies, including the following:
Since many reasons people need oral surgery stem from severe damage or symptoms, dental insurance covers many oral surgery procedures. Still, you must confirm your insurance covers your surgery.
Absolute Dental has special offers for those without insurance or whose insurance plans don’t cover elective surgery. We also have a Smile Saver program that makes it easier to afford dental care without insurance.
You can choose more than one type of Medicare if you qualify for a government health insurance program. Original Medicare covers essential medical care, including doctor’s appointments and hospital treatment. It does not cover any dental care costs.
Medicare Advantage expands your healthcare coverage. In addition to covering hospital treatment costs and doctor’s appointments, Medicare Advantage covers some prescription drug costs and some optical and dental health services. When you contact Absolute Dental, we can confirm which services your Medicare plan covers.
What to eat after oral surgery?
Your jaw, gums, and teeth may hurt after surgery. Consuming soft foods prevents you from putting pressure on your jaw, gums, and teeth and also prevents overuse. Ideal foods to eat after oral surgery include the following:
Our dental team will discuss your dietary options and explain how to promote your recovery after your dental surgery.
