Dental pain can be caused by problems ranging from cavities to cracked teeth, many of which we can fix with restorative dentistry. Sometimes, however, you’ll need oral surgery in New Orleans to relieve your discomfort and return your mouth to health.Image Title: Oral Surgery Comfortable, Relaxed Procedures Read Transcript
As far as oral surgery goes, when you're talking about removing wisdom teeth, you have to, again, get an understanding of the patient that's in front of you. What are their concerns? Do they want to be completely sedated? Because if a patient wants to be completely sedated, we do have the surgeons in place to send them to. If that's not necessary, I am able to, for the most part, treat that patient in a comfortable way by, one, understanding them, and, two, having enough experience in doing it over the years to know exactly what I'm going in there to do and doing it in an efficient amount of time so that the patient is not restless to having their mouth open for an extended amount of time and causing them to become uncomfortable.
No one likes the idea of a surgical procedure. Even so, you’ll know you’re in good hands for your dental surgery with Dr. John Tripp, a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry. Only about 6 percent of North American dentists have earned this achievement, which requires hundreds of hours of advanced training.
Along with Dr. Tripp’s training and experience, your oral surgery procedure will go smoothly with:
- Completely private care rooms for calm and quiet
- Panoramic X-rays and other advanced technology that enables us to give you the most precise care possible
- Massage chairs and other comforts to help you relax
- Effective local anesthesia through DentalVibe and the option of receiving dental sedation

Remove Problem Teeth for Pain Relief
Teeth that are too damaged for repair can cause a lot of pain – which is why it’s best to extract them ASAP. You may also need to have teeth removed to make room for dentures or other dental restorations.
Using technology like panoramic X-rays helps Dr. Tripp identify potential complications before your procedure starts, so his treatment planning can include strategies for dealing with them. In the case of wisdom teeth removal, for example, he’ll want to know if any of the teeth are impacted.
Stay Calm in Our Private Care Rooms
Since dental surgery is among the most complicated procedures we perform in our New Orleans office, you’ll appreciate the complete privacy of our care rooms. The calm and quiet atmosphere makes it easy to relax. If you need a little extra help relaxing, we can provide you with a safe oral sedative to take before your appointment.
