Dental surgery is a broad term that includes everything from a simple tooth extraction to a complex procedure such as dental implant surgery and orthognatic surgery (changes the way upper and lower jaws relate).
Dental surgery can relieve pain and improve the function and appearance of your smile.
REASONS FOR DENTAL SURGERY:
- Correct unequal jaw growth
- Improve fit of dentures
- Replaces missing teeth
- Remedy facial infections
- Treat damage from trauma or tooth decay
Dental Implant Surgery
Dental implant surgery replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that look and function like natural ones.
How dental implant surgery is performed depends on the type of dental implants you need and the condition of your jawbone.
But all dental implant surgery occurs in stages and involves several procedures. The entire process can take many months.
Removal of Impacted Teeth
When teeth grow in sideways, emerge only part way from the gum or remain trapped below the gum line, it can cause a lot of pain and dental problems.
Dental surgery may be recommended to remove one or more impacted teeth.
Wisdom teeth are the most common teeth to become impacted, but other teeth can become impacted, too.
