Dental surgeries: Not a beauty treatment

by Dr Marianna Ibrahim Primary Dental Care
Gone are the days when dental treatments were only associated with the aesthetic part of one’s personality. With the advancements in technology and health treatments, the concept of dental care treatments has also changed drastically.  Dental health contributes to the overall health of the person significantly. It is vital to take necessary care of your teeth and gums to avoid any serious disease or complication. In certain cases, people have to undergo surgeries and there is no doubt that these treatments do not excite anyone. Some of the common situations when dental surgeries are advised are discussed below:

Wisdom teeth

These are the third molars which grow after all other teeth have developed. Sometimes, they do not cause any problem to the person but usually they either do not grow fully or are not aligned properly. So, in most of the cases, surgeries are required to adjust them accurately among other teeth and jawbone. If you will not take treatments on time for these teeth then they might affect the health of other teeth as well as gums.

Jaw surgery

These surgeries are suggested when the jaws are not aligned properly. Some have a mindset that the jaw surgeries are only related with the appearance of the person and people undertake this treatment to improve their looks but reality is much bigger and brighter than this. The improper alignment of jaws can hamper the overall functioning of teeth and might affect the dental health severely if left untreated for a long time.

Biopsies

Biopsy is conducted to check for cancer. If there is a growth of ulcer or tumor in the mouth then this test is advised to be taken. In this surgery, we take a small piece of tissue and send it to the laboratory for testing. If you have any kind of lesion in your mouth then take this step immediately and save yourself from future regrets.

Reconstructive surgeries

Unfortunately, if you have met any kind of injuries which have impacted your teeth or jaws then this surgery might be prescribed to you. A missing tooth, misplaced jaw joints, damage in gums are some common problems that arise due to facial injuries and invite immediate surgical treatments.

These surgeries are conducted by oral surgeon Anaheim. These surgeries do not cause any pain and often performed after giving required dose of anesthesia. There are certain precautions which you need to take before and after these surgeries but the top dentist explain all the do’s and don’ts in detail to you. Try hard to avoid any further serious diseases which might take place if you delay these surgeries which are necessary for your good dental health.
