When Oral Surgery Is the Only Option

If you experience certain serious dental problems, your dentist in Westminster will refer you to oral surgeons to repair the dental damage with surgery. Discover the kinds of concerns that must be corrected with oral surgery.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Your wisdom teeth are the third molars toward the back of your mouth. Many times, these teeth come in improperly or become impacted, which is when they get caught between your gum tissue and jawbone. This can cause major pain and problems; so oral surgeons need to remove these teeth through oral surgery.

Missing Teeth

If you have lost teeth over time, you can have these teeth replaced with dental implants. The implants serve as substitutes for a tooth’s natural roots to connect and secure artificial teeth. But dental implants can only be placed through oral surgery. If you’re concerned about missing teeth, talk to your dentist in Westminster to see if you’re eligible for this treatment and to get a referral for oral surgeons near you.

Improper Jaw Growth

If your jaw failed to develop properly, you probably have trouble eating, swallowing, talking, and breathing. While minor problems can be corrected with a range of affordable dental care treatments, serious jaw issues will require oral surgery to improve the function of your jaw and your quality of life.

Facial Injury

If you suffered an accident or injury that’s affected your face or jaw, you will require oral surgery to reconstruct and restore the damaged area.

Cleft Lip Or Cleft Palate

These problems occur when parts of the mouth and nasal cavity fail to properly grow together during fetal development. This causes a large gap in the lip or a serious split in the opening of the roof of the mouth. To correct these concerns, oral surgeons collaborate with other affordable dental care specialists to perform a series of surgeries to repair and restore the smile.
