Oral Surgery

Oral surgery refers to surgical procedures performed in the mouth, jaws, or face to address a variety of dental and oral health issues. These procedures may range from routine extractions of teeth to complex surgeries such as dental implants, corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery), bone grafting, and treatment of oral pathology (e.g., cysts, tumors). Oral surgeons are highly trained specialists who perform these procedures with precision and expertise, often in collaboration with other dental or medical professionals. Oral surgery aims to improve oral function, alleviate pain, correct abnormalities, and enhance the overall health and aesthetics of the mouth and face.


Who would require Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery may be required for individuals facing various dental and oral health issues, including:

Impacted Teeth:

Individuals with impacted wisdom teeth or other teeth that fail to emerge properly from the gums may require oral surgery to remove the impacted teeth and prevent complications such as infections, pain, and damage to neighboring teeth.

Orthodontic Treatment:

Some orthodontic treatments, such as correcting severe malocclusions or jaw discrepancies, may require oral surgery in conjunction with orthodontic procedures to achieve optimal results.

Jaw Disorders:

Patients with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, facial trauma, or congenital jaw abnormalities may require corrective jaw surgery (orthognathic surgery) to improve jaw alignment, function, and facial aesthetics.

Tooth Extractions:

Patients with severely decayed, damaged, or infected teeth that cannot be saved with other dental treatments may require tooth extractions. Oral surgery may be necessary for complex extractions, such as teeth with curved roots or extensive damage.

Dental Implants:

Individuals who are missing one or more teeth may require oral surgery to place dental implants, which serve as artificial tooth roots to support replacement teeth (crowns, bridges, or dentures).

Oral Pathology:

Individuals diagnosed with oral lesions, cysts, tumors, or other pathological conditions may require oral surgery for biopsy, removal, or treatment of the affected tissues to prevent further complications or ensure proper diagnosis and management.

Ultimately, the need for oral surgery varies depending on the individual's specific dental and oral health conditions. Consulting with a qualified oral surgeon can help determine the appropriate treatment plan tailored to address the patient's needs and achieve optimal oral health outcomes.
