Reasons for Oral Surgery
Our practice offers two different options for teeth whitening: an in-office procedure or take-home kits purchased through our office. Both of these options will deliver faster, longer lasting results than over-the-counter brands.
Extracting wisdom teeth is one of the main reasons for oral surgery. Some people don’t need their wisdom teeth removed, but most people cannot afford the crowding that wisdom teeth can cause. If left in the mouth, wisdom teeth may also cause damage to the teeth, gums and jaw bone. Other teeth besides wisdom teeth may also cause issues and need to be surgically removed as well.
Patients who experience popping or stiff jaws, headaches or general jaw pain may have deeper underlying jaw issues. While some jaw issues can be mitigated with physical therapy, medication and other solutions, some situations are severe enough to warrant oral surgery.
Having an overbite, underbite or crossbite can heavily impact the alignment and function of your teeth. Oftentimes, a mismatched bite can be corrected with braces if the problem stems from misaligned teeth. If the problem lies with your jaw, sometimes surgery is necessary to correct your bite. Correcting your bite can correct issues with speaking, eating, swallowing and even breathing.
Implants and Other Hardware
If you’re getting special cosmetic work done, like dental implants, this process will require dental surgery. Getting dental implants is a relatively invasive procedure involving replacing missing or infected teeth with an implant that’s surgically placed into your jaw. This is a permanent alternative to bridges and dentures that many patients elect to have. Getting dentures may also require oral surgery to correct jaw shape before implementation.
