low income oral surgeryAll too often, financial concerns prevent patients with critical dental conditions from receiving the care they need. At Penn Dental Medicine, we’re committed to changing that.

Not only do we offer highly affordable rates for general dental care; we are also proud to offer advanced treatment options. So, for patients with low income, oral surgery is an affordable possibility. Additionally, because of our direct association with the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, low income patients can approach oral surgery knowing they will be treated by  today’s and tomorrow’s leading dental experts, who will use the most advanced oral surgery equipment and oral surgery methods.

What exactly do those those treatment methods entail? Learn more below about the oral surgery process.

The Penn Dental Oral Surgery Procedure

The first step of the oral surgery procedure at Penn Dental Medicine is determining patient candidacy. This is not dependent on whether a patient has a high or low income. Oral surgery is recommended for patients diagnosed with injuries, diseases, and disorders of the face and jaw.

Depending on the nature of your condition, one of the following surgical operations may be recommended:

  • Tooth Management and Removal, for diseased teeth, impacted teeth, or wisdom teeth.
  • Alveoloplasty, for the shaping and smoothing of tooths sockets, following tooth removal.
  • Tori Removal, for the removal of tori bone growth along the roof of the mouth, jaw, or upper molars.
  • Dental Trauma Surgery, for severe dental and facial injuries.
  • Oral Pathology, including lesion and biopsy procedures.
  • Temporomandibular Joint Surgery, for temporomandibular joint issues and pain management.

These are just a few of the oral surgery treatments available to patients of all income levels. Your particular procedure will be performed by predoctoral students or postdoctoral residents of Penn Dental School and overseen by Board-certified and Board-eligible doctors.

Following your surgical treatment, your physicians will give you specific instructions for the recovery process. These may include eating instructions, pain management, routine check-ups, and more.
