Oral Cancer Surgery

If you have been diagnosed with oral cancer, our dentist may recommend surgical treatment to eliminate the cancer and aid in your recovery. The primary goal of this surgery is to remove the cancerous tissue while maintaining your appearance and functional abilities such as speaking and swallowing. This procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia in a hospital setting to ensure your comfort and safety. Recovery times vary based on the complexity of the surgery and the need for any reconstructive procedures.

Our dentist will collaborate closely with your medical team to assess the extent of your oral cancer and develop a personalized treatment plan. We will discuss all available options with you to help you make informed decisions about your care.

Tumor Removal Surgery

Surgery to remove tumors, often referred to as “wide resection,” involves excising the tumor along with a margin of healthy tissue to ensure all cancerous cells are removed. Small tumors may be removed through minor surgery, but larger ones might require more extensive procedures, potentially involving the removal of portions of the jawbone, tongue or surrounding teeth.

Cyst Removal Surgery

Cysts in the oral cavity can cause discomfort and potential complications if left untreated. Our dentist can perform surgical procedures to remove these cysts, ensuring that they do not interfere with your oral health or daily activities. The procedure is typically straightforward and can significantly improve your comfort and wellbeing.

Reconstructive Surgery

After the removal of cancerous or benign growths, reconstructive surgery may be necessary to restore function and aesthetics. This can involve grafting skin, muscle or bone, as well as placing dental implants. Our dentist will work with other medical specialists as needed to develop a reconstruction plan tailored to your needs, ensuring you regain the ability to speak and eat effectively.

Post-Surgical Care

After your surgery, our team will provide comprehensive post-operative care to support your recovery. We will guide you through the healing process and offer advice on maintaining your oral health.
