Oral problems for people are associated with their teeth (i.e. dental problems) or jaw or mouth and these days they tend to look towards oral surgery as a means of solving these.
Normally small or minor dental and oral problems can be solved using medicines and removing the affected teeth or using braces, but some major problems like jaw adjustment, fractures, infections etc., need surgery so that they can be treated fully.
Contrary to popular perceptions, Dental problems affect people in all ages. It can be due to birth related or generic problems that can be diagnosed and cured in early ages.
During young ages, dental problems can occur due to accidents or growth related problems. These relate to the teeth growing in different directions or in an irregular manner.
Further there can be problems due to the jaws not being aligned properly. In some cases the upper or lower jaw can be protruding or retracted compared to the other jaw and this can cause problems in breathing,
Chewing and cause bad bites. People undergo dental oral surgery to solve these kind of problems.Dental problems that require oral surgery also consists of impacted teeth which is a situation where a teeth is not able to break through the gum tissue and appear.
In most cases this occurs for wisdom teeth, where there is no space for the large molars to grow. This can cause heavy pain, swelling and infection or bleeding in some cases.
Impacted teeth problems if unattended can cause permanent damage to the adjacent teeth or gum tissue and so most dentists recommend removal of such teeth and dental oral surgery is one common way of doing that.
Dental implants are another common problems that require oral surgery and offer a permanent, fixed and long lasting replacement to lost teeth.
These are placed directly into the jaw bone during a dental oral surgery, and over a period of time, fuse together with the bones to give a permanent solution.
Once the fusion is complete and ready, a crown in the form of a tooth can be placed on top of the implant and will give a natural and complete look.
Another kind of dental problem that is regularly treated by the oral and maxillofacial surgery is TMJ. Here the problem occurs in the joint where the skull and the lower jaw meet and is caused due to a variety of factors, by which the soft disk that acts as a cushion between these two bone structures is affected.
