What Procedures Do Oral Surgeons Offer?
Not all dental problems are limited to the surface of the tooth, such as cavities or crowns. Some issues require surgical intervention to extract problem teeth, address bone deterioration, or correct structural concerns. Oral surgeons are specially trained to perform surgery for complex mouth, teeth, jaw, or facial problems or trauma.
When one or more teeth are missing, dental implants can provide an effective long-term solution that looks, feels, and functions just like natural teeth. Titanium implants are anchored to the jawbone to provide strength and stability to replacement teeth. In addition, dental implants can be used to hold dentures securely in place.
Wisdom Teeth Removal:
Wisdom teeth are an extra set of molars that are not needed, and many people do not have adequate space in their mouth to accommodate them. This can cause pain, tooth decay, and misalignment of existing teeth, making wisdom tooth extraction a necessary procedure to improve oral health, comfort, and aesthetics.
Missing teeth can contribute to a variety of oral health problems, including bone loss. The jawbone needs stimulation from the root of the tooth to continue growing and remain stable. A bone graft can replace weak or missing bone mass and provide a stronger base for dental implants.
Corrective Jaw Surgery:
Misalignment of the jaw – whether from a protruding or receding jawbone or cross-bite – can lead to numerous problems with biting, chewing, speaking, breathing, and even pain. Corrective jaw surgery can alleviate problems by properly aligning the jawbones for improved function and comfort as well as aesthetics.
Depending on the severity of the problem, it may not always be possible to save a damaged tooth. Instead, extracting it can help keep remaining teeth from spreading decay, reduce overcrowding by providing more space, and allow for the placement of implants in order to attach the replacement teeth and restore your smile.
Oral surgeons also perform a variety of other procedures such as preparing the jaw and gums for dentures or other dental prosthetics, examining changes in the gums or skin on the cheeks to check for cancer or other diseases, and administering bone morphogenetic proteins or platelet-rich plasma to stimulate healing following oral surgery.
