In a perfect world, no one would need oral surgery. In the real world, you or someone you love is likely to benefit from dental surgery at one point or another. Here are some times when surgery could help you:
You are Preparing for Orthodontic Care
If you have crowded teeth, orthodontic care can be complicated. Extracting a tooth or a few teeth could make your orthodontic treatment easier and faster.
You Have Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Removing wisdom teeth is a little different because they are located in the back of your mouth. If they become impacted, they can cause a number of oral health problems. Taking them out can spare you from years of trouble.
You are Getting Dental Implants
If you have lived with missing teeth or with dentures for a long time, you may have lost some bone density in your jaw. A bone graft can rebuild your jaw so it is strong enough to support implants.
You Had Gum Disease
Periodontal disease can lead to gum recession. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is an easy way to reposition healthy gum tissue to restore your original gumline.
