Removal of wisdom teeth is one of the most common and widespread types of oral surgery. Wisdom teeth come out late compared to the rest of the teeth, even after the age of 20 for some people. Therefore, this can create problems in the structure of the teeth. Some even come out crooked, which can happen if the other teeth impede how the wisdom teeth erupt. The removal of wisdom teeth is often carried out to prevent problems because many tend to cause more issues than any benefit they could provide.
Tooth extraction is another very common operation. Often a tooth can be irreparably damaged and must first be extracted and then replaced with a new dental implant. There are many reasons for removing a tooth: damaged tooth, infection, space for installation of a dental implant (such as an All on 4), and even severe cavities can lead to a tooth being extracted.
If dental or mouth problems are very serious and widespread, a complete restoration of the mouth can be achieved. It is, as the name may suggest, the total reconstruction of all structures, including the teeth. It is a type of surgery that is used only in case of very serious problems, but it is necessary to be able to fully restore the functions of the mouth.
To install dental implants, the bone must be solid and sufficient. In the event that the bone is too soft or worn, we can opt for a bone graft to carry out the implant procedure. The graft serves to regenerate the worn bone and to promote osseointegration, essential for the success of the implantation.
Orthognathic surgery is a type of surgery needed to correct the jaw. It is used to correct small and large jaw imperfections that can cause pain or cause problems with chewing, speaking, or even just yawning.
Oral pathologies are those pathologies that affect and influence the mouth or maxillofacial region. It is believed by some that these are diseases that should be treated only through drugs, but this is not the case. Often there is also need for surgery to be able to cure this type of disease, which, if left untreated, can also lead to serious problems.
