ORAL SURGERY VIDEOS
If you need oral surgery, it's often an outpatient procedure that requires local or general anesthesia.
During your consultation, be sure to ask your doctor how to prepare for surgery: whether you'll need to fast the night before—and any important after-care information you'll need, such as how soon and what you can eat.
Healing times vary based on the type of surgery. Though swelling and discomfort usually diminish after 48 hours, wisdom tooth extractions and other common surgeries often take one to two weeks to fully heal, while jaw surgery can take a month or more to completely heal.
