Oral surgery is not as scary as everyone seems to think it is. Of course, it’s not hard to imagine that anything with the word “surgery” in it isn’t invasive or expensive. At WoodSprings Dentistry in Spring, TX we make sure to let every patient know that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to oral surgery.
Most of the common types of oral surgery are nothing to worry about. They’re simple and can help with a lot of problems such as impacted wisdom teeth, tooth loss, and more. Once the surgery is done you can feel back to normal within a few days.
One type is oral and maxillofacial surgery which is when surgery is done on the tissues in your mouth. This includes your teeth and gums or anything to do with your head, jaw or face.
Surgical treatment is required for a few common types of problems, and these treatments appear more often than others. It’s easy to see that these issues are not as scary as many first think.
Wisdom teeth do grow in naturally for some people, but often they can grow in sideways or impacted, or they may not break through the gums fully. If food is trapped between the gums or tooth, then decay is likely. In these cases, removal of the wisdom tooth is recommended.
This is also a form of oral surgery. This is when titanium “posts” are implanted into your jawbone beneath the gums to help hold fake teeth in place so that they can replace missing teeth. These are meant to fully replace your natural teeth and look just as real.
