When Is Oral Surgery Necessary?

Many conditions can require oral surgery, such as:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth.
  • Tooth loss.
  • Jaw related problems.
  • Tooth implants.
  • Tooth extractions.

All of which may require the help of an oral surgeon. Wisdom teeth seem to be a major source of problems that can require extraction. For many people, the jaw is simply too small to allow the wisdom teeth to grow naturally from the inner gum line. Without space, these third molars often have a faulty alignment and do not succeed in emerging properly from the gum line. This leads to the teeth becoming trapped or even impacted among the jawbone and the gum tissue, which leads to more problems.

Impacted wisdom teeth are responsible for severe swelling, pain and infection festering around the gum tissue. Along with this, impacted wisdom teeth also are known to lead to permanent and severe damage to the nearby teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth also can harm the gums and bones. This may lead to the growth of cysts or tumors. These cysts and tumors, if left unchecked and untreated, can destroy entire sections of the patient’s jaw. People with impacted wisdom teeth are often advised by dentists to have oral surgery and remove the wisdom teeth. Fortunately, this can solve this problem once and for all.

Other teeth can become impacted. The cuspids and the bicuspids may fall prey to impaction and may need to be removed via oral surgery. These teeth also create similar gum and teeth problems if left untreated by a seasoned orthodontist or dentist.

Other Reasons for Oral Surgery

Some people may lose their teeth in accidents or some form of infections in the mouth and may have to use bridges or even dentures. Oral surgery can be a replacement for such solutions and can solve the problem quickly. Dental implants can be used to avoid dentures and bridges. Dental implants can be best described as tooth root substitutes that are surgically anchored to hold their place inside the patient’s jawbone. They are attached to artificial teeth and they help in providing the stabilization and support required for normal oral functions.

How Do You Know if You Need Oral Surgery?

Patients should normally show required amount of bone level and bone density and should not be susceptible to frequent infections. Good oral hygiene habits also ensure that oral surgery is a success in the long run.

Some jaw related problems also may require the help of oral surgeries. A case of unequal jaw growth occurs where the upper or the lower jaw does not grow properly in sync with the other jaw. Some can be healed using state of the art orthodontic appliances, but most require extensive oral surgery to position the jaws into suitable normal and healthy placement.

A disorder known as Temporomandibular joint disorder or TMJ disorder will require oral surgery. This disorder can cause facial pain and severe headaches and may be best treated with a quick surgery.
