What Oral Surgeons Treat?
Tooth loss: This occurs when the teeth get affected by infection or some injury. Oral surgeons help in replacing the missing tooth with dental implants.
Facial injuries / infections: Facial injuries that involve broken bones may need the help of an oral surgeon, to fix it. Oral surgeons also help in diagnosing and treating facial infections.
Jaw related problems: This can range from broken jaws to misaligned jaws. One may experience discomfort or difficulty while biting or chewing due to misaligned jaws. An oral surgeon, with the help of surgery, will be able to move both or either one of the jaws to make them properly aligned. This balances the functioning of your entire mouth.
Impacted teeth: Wisdom teeth, otherwise called as third molars get impacted in the jaws by not emerging out or emerging in the wrong direction. This may cause a lot of pain and discomfort. The affected teeth can be surgically removed by the oral surgeon to avoid further complications. This can relieve you out of the pain and improves your oral health.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ): It affects the jaw joints, affecting their movements and causes a lot of pain. However, TMJ can be treated through surgery.
