There are a number of reasons for individuals to require oral surgery. Oral Surgery can help with impacted teeth, with one
common type of impacted teeth being Wisdom Teeth. Wisdom Teeth can become impacted when they
emerge later in life, once the molars have already developed. Wisdom Teeth more often than
not do not have the proper spacing to rise naturally and they impact with the molars in the
rear of the mouth. This can be very painful and dangerous and impacted teeth can cause permanent
damage to nearby teeth and gums.
Oral Surgery can also work hand-in-hand with dental implants of missing teeth. Dental implants are an option for tooth loss due to an accident or infection or as an alternative to dentures.
An implant is kind of like a tooth root substitute. When an implant gets anchored in place through surgery, it is attached to the jawbone and will stabilize artificial teeth to make sure they remain in place. In nearly all cases, candidates for a possible dental implant procedure will need to have an adequate bone and density level.
Also, they must not be individuals that are prone to infection, and patients also must maintain proper oral hygiene practices moving forward to ensure that the implant remains healthy.
