What Is Dental Surgery and It's Benefits?

Posted on 2/6/2023 by Office
What Is Dental Surgery and It's Benefits?Many patients feel anxious when a dentist suggests "dental surgery." The patient could believe they are very ill and must undertake a risky, uncomfortable, and expensive operation. However, the reality is that many dental surgery operations are routine and take care of issues that are common to many people.

What Is Dental Surgery?

Dental surgery is any surgical treatment in or around your mouth or jaw. These procedures are often carried out by a dental expert who has received special training in a particular type of oral surgery. Dental surgery addresses issues like sleep apnea, impacted wisdom teeth, or tooth loss.

Although every situation is unique, many dental surgery treatments are carried out as outpatient care, and you can return to your regular life after a few days. Here are some benefits of dental surgery.

Achieve Long-Term Tooth Replacement

If you have missing teeth, you have a range of choices for your problem. If you go for a bridge or denture, you will replace the tooth's crown (which is located above the gum line) but not the roots. As a result, your gadget may last several years, but it will eventually need to be replaced and probably repaired once in a while. When replacing a tooth through dental surgery, the entire tooth is replaced with a dental implant and treatment for a long-lasting and dependable solution.

Prevent Serious Damage

Sometimes, you will require dental surgery to treat a progressive issue. This means that if you don't treat the current problem—for example, jawbone deterioration—it will get worse over time. Fortunately, in this instance, bone grafting may be used to restore the missing tissue and prevent the condition from worsening and causing extensive damage.

Address The Matter (Not The Symptom)

An additional advantage of dental surgery is that it treats the underlying issue that harms your oral health rather than just treating the symptom. For instance, a dentist may advise a jaw surgery to realign your jaws to fix the issue rather than recommending that you take painkillers and manage jaw difficulties.
