Signs that You Could Use Oral Surgery
Oral surgery can be preventative or restorative treatment.
During one’s late teens and early 20s, most people grow a third set of molars, commonly known as wisdom teeth. When wisdom teeth develop straight and healthy, they can be an asset for chewing food. Unfortunately, many people do not have adequate space in their mouths for this to happen. If one does not have the capacity to develop third molars, then one might develop misaligned or impacted wisdom teeth that require wisdom teeth surgery. Some signs that you might need wisdom teeth extraction include wisdom teeth pain, bad breath, swelling in the face or jaw, and difficulty chewing, biting, or opening the mouth.
It’s no secret. The longer a tooth is missing, the greater the chance of experiencing jawbone degeneration. Once the jaw begins to erode, you can expect facial changes and potentially disqualifying dental implant-supported devices. If you are interested in dental implants but have experienced substantial jawbone deterioration, a bone graft can help you reach your restorative dentistry goals.
The purpose of oral surgery is to improve oral health and prevent problems from starting in the first place.
The primary goal of wisdom teeth extraction is to prevent or address wisdom tooth infection. After wisdom tooth surgery, you might notice alleviated facial pain, resolved bad breath, and overall improved oral health. Plus, removing wisdom teeth before they cause overcrowding can negate a need for future dental or orthodontic work.
Oral bone grafting is a surgical procedure that can deliver a stable foundation for dental implants after tooth and jawbone loss.
Oral Surgery Services
Our Frisco dentists offer two oral surgery options designed to keep patients comfortable and healthy:
- Wisdom Teeth Extraction: Typically, people have four or fewer wisdom teeth at the back of the mouth that are carefully removed from the socket during wisdom teeth surgery.
- Bone Grafting: What is bone grafting for teeth? This surgical procedure involves transplanting hard tissues directly into the jaw for healthy bone growth.
