What makes someone a candidate for Oral Surgery For Seniors?

If you’re a senior, you’re looking for an office that you can trust to have oral surgery done. We will consult with you to determine the best way to go about having the surgery performed in our office. We will review your health and medical history prior to any procedure being done. This ensures that the surgery is as safe and successful as possible.

What happens during Oral Surgery For Seniors?

The surgical process for seniors begins with a consultation. We want to get to know you and your own dental and oral health needs. We may take x-rays to help in identifying a treatment plan and getting to know what you may need to enhance your smile. We then schedule you to come into the office to have the surgery performed. We can offer you sedation to help calm you down while the work is being performed. We understand that many seniors may find it difficult to sit in the dental chair for long periods of time, so we will customize our care to accommodate these needs. We can provide you with follow up care to ensure that your smile is healing in the proper manner.
