If you have visited our office and have found out that you need oral surgery, then knowing why this is, is important. We do our best to explain the reasons behind the surgical procedure that we do, or need to do, but we welcome all of our patients to ask questions during this time so they have a better understanding of what is going to be done. Oral surgery is needed for a variety of reasons, so making sure to know these reasons is important.
Top Reasons to Need Oral Surgery
One of the biggest reasons is that you have wisdom teeth that need to be removed from the back of your mouth. This could be because they are impacted, they are growing the wrong way, they are crowding the mouth, or a variety of other reasons.
The next reason is because you have impacted teeth somewhere in your mouth. This can cause issues with your adjacent teeth, gums, jawbone, or other areas of the face. This causes a big issue when it comes to the functionality and look of your teeth and smile. Bone loss in the jaw area and under the gums can require oral surgery to fix. This can help the bony area provide more structure inside the mouth.
The last procedure could be that you have a jaw misalignment that needs to be fixed. Through oral surgery, this can be aligned for better talking, eating, smiling, and other functions that come with using your mouth.
