Oral surgery

Oral Surgery is required to be done in cases of impacted teeth, tooth loss and for jaw – related problems. Oral Surgeries are performed by Oral Surgery Specialists.

Wisdom teeth (third molars) are the set of teeth which develops in the age between 12 and 21. In some people, it is see that they become impacted as there is not enough place in the mouth for its proper eruption. As a result, it might come sideways or is tilted in appearance.

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause serious problems such as swelling, acute pain, and infection of the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth. It may also cause a permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone and can sometimes lead to the formation of cysts or tumors which may destroy some section of the jaw. In such cases, the dentists recommend the wisdom teeth to be removed surgically. Oral surgeries are performed by oral surgeons in Oral Surgery Centers.

A tooth loss may occur due to various reasons such as accident, infection, etc. Dental implants are recommended in such cases to safeguard the other teeth. Dental implants are basically tooth root substitutes, placed in the jawbone to activate the artificial tooth.

In some people, the growth of the upper jaw and the lower jaw is improper. This often leads to difficulty while speaking, swallowing and eating. Some problems related to jaw can be easily corrected with dental braces and some other orthodontic appliances. In few serious cases, a surgery needs to be performed to move a part of the jaw (upper/lower or both) to the perfect position for better functionality.
