When Oral Surgery is Best for Your Bite

dca-blog_oral-surgery-three-people

A lot of dental discomfort can be relieved by oral surgery. Discover the many conditions that this treatment technique can improve.

In Case of Impacted Teeth

When wisdom teeth can’t come in correctly, they are considered to be impacted and can result in pain, swelling, infection, and permanent damage to the surrounding area. But oral surgeons can remove these teeth to both relieve and prevent painful problems.

Trouble with Tooth Loss

If you have lost teeth due to an accident or infection, 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 a sufficient bone level and are willing to maintain them with good oral hygiene.

In a Jam with Your Jaw

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
  • Unequal 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.

For Facial Issues

If you’re facing facial problems, then oral surgery can ease your discomfort. Oral surgeons commonly use surgery 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.

The Stress of 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.
