- Myth: All Oral Surgeries are Extremely Painful.
Fact: While pain tolerance is relative per patient, not all oral surgical procedures are painful. In a study of 75 patients, only 17 suggested that the pain was worse than expected. For pain management, Ocoee Oral Surgery provides Intravenous Anesthesia for maximum comfort during procedures and post-operative medications to help provide the highest level of patient comfort.
- Myth: Dental Sedation is NOT Safe.
Fact: While some might be worried to go under the knife, the majority of oral surgery patients are most concerned about the “needle” of sedation and general anesthesia. So is dental sedation safe? The answer is yes! Our Oral Surgeons have more anesthesia training than any other dental professionals and they are more than qualified to deliver safe and effective sedation to their patients. They are licensed to provide Intravenous Sedation and General Anesthesia.
- Myth: Recovery is a Hard Road.
Fact: The common misconception of oral surgery is the post operative process and duration of recovery. Many patients assume they will be out of work for several days or weeks following their oral surgery. However, in most cases, recovery time is just 3 days. While following directions, watching what you eat, and monitoring levels of discomfort with prescribed medications, you should bounce back in no time!
- Myth: All Oral Specialists Have the Same Qualifications.
