While the prospect of surgery may be daunting to some, the undeniable effectiveness of these procedures is noteworthy. Cutting-edge dental advancements have made oral surgeries less complicated and invasive. They offer patients more comfortable and efficient treatment options than ever before. Here are the reasons you should see an oral surgeon:

Tooth Extractions

Some tooth extractions are not simple and may necessitate more invasive oral surgery. You must visit an oral surgeon if your tooth is severely decayed, damaged, impacted, or causing crowding. An oral surgeon will prevent the condition from worsening.

Corrective Jaw Surgery

Corrective jaw surgery helps to correct jaw irregularities and enhance bite function. It entails realigning and reconstructing the jaw to enhance functionality. As a result, the procedure allows the patient to speak, breathe, and chew better than before.

Dental Implants Placements

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support bridges, crowns, or dentures. Oral surgeons are skilled in the placement of dental implants, ensuring the secure integration of the implants with the jawbone. This procedure offers a long-lasting and effective solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring both function and aesthetics to the patient's smile.

TMJ Disorders

Oral surgeons specialize in diagnosing and treating temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. This condition can result in jaw pain and difficulties with jaw movement. Through a comprehensive evaluation, they can identify the underlying causes of TMJ disorders and recommend appropriate treatments to alleviate discomfort and improve jaw function. These treatments may include non-surgical interventions and medication. Surgical procedures may sometimes be necessary to address severe or persistent TMJ issues.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth (third molars) frequently require extraction due to crowding, impaction, or other dental complications. An oral surgeon performs this procedure with expertise to ensure the patient's best outcome and overall oral health.
