Many people avoid having severe problems treated because they are fearful of oral surgery. This is a dangerous game because these problems will only worsen and cause more discomfort and irreversible damage. Oral surgery has been described by many as a scary experience that cause discomfort and anxiety, but in our office, we make oral surgery a pleasant, simple experience. Do not let the poor work performed by some unqualified or hurried surgeons deter you from seeking out the help you need from our office. We can provide you with whatever oral surgery procedure you need while also making it an experience you are pleased with.
Which Conditions are Treated by Oral Surgery
There are many conditions we can treat with oral surgery, some of which are:
- Impacted Teeth: Wisdom teeth or other teeth that have grown into a crowded area and are causing discomfort or poor function are referred to as impacted teeth. When the jawbone does not provide enough space for these teeth to grow in, they grow into improper alignment and may not even fully erupt through the gum line. When this occurs, it is called impaction, because the teeth become trapped between the gum tissue and bone. When this problem is not treated with the proper oral surgery, it can cause infection, bleeding, pain, misaligned teeth, and even tooth loss.
- Tooth Replacement: Some tooth replacement options like dental implants require oral surgery. When you are receiving a dental implant, a prosthetic, titanium post will be surgically inserted into your jawbone to act as a strong tooth root for an artificial tooth.
- Orthodontics: In severe cases of tooth or jaw misalignment, it may be suggested that you undergo oral surgery to have excess teeth that are growing in incorrectly removed. If these teeth are not removed, they could damage nearby teeth or inhibit jaw shape and function.
- Facial Injury: If your face or dental structure is injured in a sports accident, car accident, or other collision, we can provide the needed oral surgery to fix these problems and improve the appearance of your face.
