The Safety of Dental Work Before Surgery

Surgery can be complicated by dental problems, particularly infections or inflammations in the mouth. It is a good idea to be sure that having surgery will not harm your oral health. Your oral surgeon can collaborate to plan your care to ensure everything is in order before you go to the operating table.

Before the surgery, you may have to undergo significant dental work. It is better to clear up any lingering dental issues before facing a surgery and possible long recovery. The following procedures are often taken care of beforehand:

Routine Dental Cleanings


Plaque and tartar buildup can be eliminated with routine dental cleanings. Tooth decay and gum disease are significantly decreased as a result. Consequently, it is safe to do tooth cleanings before surgery.

Fillings


Dental fillings repair cavities and minor dental damage. Before surgery, it is usually safe to get a cavity filled or replaced.

Radiography and Examination


Routine X-rays and dental check-ups are recommended to help identify any oral issues that need to be treated before surgery. As part of your pre-surgical evaluation, several procedures might be suggested.

Minor Tooth Extractions


Tremendous risks can be avoided when extracting teeth that are decaying or broken. A careful plan by your oral surgeon may be needed for complex or numerous extractions.

Root Canal Treatment


You could need root canal therapy to save a tooth if you have inflammation or infection. It usually is safe to carry out this operation before surgery.

Dental Bridges or Crowns


Repairing or replacing damaged teeth may necessitate restorative operations like dental crowns or bridges. Surgery can be done after completing these therapies first.

Preoperative dental work can aid in a faster recovery and is generally considered safe. Simple operations include cleaning, fillings, root canals, and examination. When recuperating from surgery, nobody wants their toothache to recur. Consulting a dentist before surgery can be beneficial if your teeth bother you.
