Oral Surgery in Clearwater
Oral surgery is an umbrella term used to describe surgical procedures performed in or around your mouth—and includes any procedures needed to prepare for dental implants and tooth removal. Our Beyond Dentistry Clearwater dentist duo has extensive, advanced training to successfully perform various oral surgery procedures.
When is oral surgery necessary?
Typically, oral surgery is necessary to correct complex problems with your oral health or to prepare for another dental treatment. For example, tooth extraction and a bone graft may be necessary to prepare for a dental implant at Beyond Dentistry Clearwater.
Candidacy for oral surgery is highly individualized and depends on your oral health and the specifics of your case. The best way to find out if you need oral surgery is to book a consultation at Beyond Dentistry Clearwater.
Our Oral Surgery Process: What to Expect
Oral surgery is a broad term and includes a wide range of procedures, including dental extraction. Still, here’s what you can expect from most oral surgeries:
- Initial Consultation: First, you’ll come in for a consultation at our office. Dr. Alqasemi or Dr. Adham will examine your mouth, take x-rays, and diagnose your condition to determine if oral surgery is necessary for your treatment plan. If it is, you’ll schedule one or more follow-ups to begin your treatment at Beyond Dentistry Clearwater.
- Prep, Numbing, and Sedation: As the first step of your surgery, Dr. Alqasemi or Dr. Adham will clean and numb the treatment area. We also offer sedation options to keep you feeling safe and comfortable throughout your treatment.
- Performing Oral Surgery: The specifics of your procedure will vary depending on the oral surgery you need. You’re in good hands with our team, and we’ll use a detailed surgical plan to ensure your treatment goes smoothly.
- Healing and Recovery: When your surgery is over, Dr. Alqasemi or Dr. Adham will discuss your recovery with you and send you home with instructions to follow as you heal from your procedure.

While many oral surgery specialists offer oral surgery, Beyond Dentistry is more than a typical oral surgery center. On top of oral surgery, we provide comprehensive dental services, including preventive, restorative, and more.
To start things off, we’ll perform a complete cleaning of your teeth and gums, using special tools to remove any plaque and tartar that may have built up along the gumline. Essential aspects of your cleaning will include thorough flossing between your teeth in all those hard-to-reach places, and scraping off plaque that has accumulated along the gum line. To finish the cleaning process, we’ll polish your teeth, leaving you feeling refreshed, revitalized, and ready to smile.
Any Necessary X-Rays
If you’re new to the office or haven’t had dental x-rays in a while, your Clearwater dentist may recommend that you take some during your preventive care appointment. Dental x-rays let us see what’s going on beneath the surface of your smile, giving us the ability to find issues that may not be visible otherwise. With x-rays, we’re able to make more accurate diagnoses and create more effective and efficient treatment plans.
Your dentist will review your x-rays and then take a thorough look at your teeth, gums, and the rest of your mouth. If we spot any issues, we’ll take the time to educate you on our findings, so you can keep your dental health on the right track. We make it our goal to keep you educated about your oral well-being, so you can make the right decisions for your smile.
Personalized Treatment Plan
Using the information we’ve gathered with your exam and x-rays, we’ll work together with you to craft a treatment plan customized for your unique oral health needs, budget, and lifestyle. If everything looks good, we’ll simply schedule your next routine cleaning and checkup.
