Chew Over Which Conditions are Helped by Oral Surgery

dca-blog_oral-surgery-three-people

If you suffer from dental disorders or extreme dental discomfort, then you may want to opt for oral surgery. See if your condition can be corrected by this treatment.

Tooth Loss

Are you embarrassed by missing teeth? Then dental implants are a simple alternative to full bridges or dentures. The tooth replacements are securely placed in the jawbone by oral surgeons. But dental implants are only advised if you have sufficient bone level and are willing to maintain them with good oral hygiene.

Impacted Teeth

Wisdom teeth that can’t emerge through the gums are considered to be impacted. This problem cannot be ignored because it usually causes swelling, pain, infection, and permanent damage to the nearby area. But oral surgeons can remove these teeth to both relieve and prevent painful problems.

Jaw Problems

Oral surgery can correct a number of jaw-related problems, such as:

  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders – when TMJ disjunction requires more than medication and therapy
  • Uneven jaw growth – when improper jaw growth makes it difficult to speak, eat, and breathe.
  • Poor denture fit when jaw irregularities prevent dentures from fitting comfortably.

Facial Issues

If you’re facing facial problems, then oral surgery can ease your discomfort. Oral surgeons commonly use the treatment to correct these conditions:

  • Cleft Lip Or Palate – to correct this fetal development disorder that results in a gap in the lip or a split in the roof of the mouth.
  • Facial Injury – for fixing fractured jaws and broken facial bones.
  • Facial Infections – to treat infections that cause swelling and pain in the face.

Snoring or Sleep Apnea

Oral surgeons can perform advanced procedures to help those who suffer from sleeping concerns.  If non-surgical methods fail to work, then oral surgery is an option for getting a good night’s sleep.
