Oral Surgery

Your teeth serve more purposes than just helping you chew your food. They also help you speak and help to provide some structure to the face. Something else that most people with perfect teeth never stop to think about is the confidence boost that your teeth give you. You only realize how much you value your teeth when you lose one or two and you can no longer smile as confidently as before as you go about your day. However, there is hope even for those with dental problems. Advancements in the medical field have made it possible for almost all dental problems to be taken care of. Below are some of the most common types of oral surgery.

1. Dental implants

If you have a missing tooth or two, this is what you need. A metal post is surgically implanted into the jawbone and over time, this fuses with the gum. An artificial tooth is then placed on the metal post. No one will be able to tell you have an artificial tooth because the crown is made to look just like the rest of your teeth. This is a long-term solution as you can have the implants for a very long time, as long as you take good care of them.

2. Wisdom tooth removal

If your wisdom teeth are causing you problems, it might be a good idea to have them surgically removed. They may not be properly aligned, or they may not fully erupt. This can cause you a great deal of discomfort and in fact, it can also affect the surrounding teeth. This is why the best thing to do is to have them surgically removed. You already have two other sets of molars; you don’t really need the third!

3. Jaw surgery

Your jaws may be misaligned for various reasons. For instance, in severe cases of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, the patient’s jaws may cause the jaws to be misaligned. It may also be due to an accident you were involved in. Not only is this quite uncomfortable, it can also make it impossible for your teeth to function properly, and it definitely also affects your looks. Jaw surgery can be done to align the jaws and restore function.

4. Biopsies

If you have recurring mouth sores, a lump or red patches in your mouth, you should probably see an oral pathologist to have a look at them. They will do a biopsy to check whether you have oral cancer. Remember, the sooner you catch it, the better. You will be able to nip it in the bud before the situation worsens.

Most of these procedures are minimally invasive and some dental clinics like Brisman Implant and Oral Surgery will have you in and out in no time at all. There is absolutely no reason for you to continue suffering in silence when you can do something about it. Whether it is a painful condition that causes you a lot of agony or a missing tooth that makes you insecure about your looks, seek the help you need today.
