Why Do I need Oral Surgery?

Posted on 4/12/2021 by Dr. Shaun Rai
Why Do I need Oral Surgery?There are several situations in which oral surgery becomes essential. Whether you lost a tooth, suffer from oral infections, or experience pain due to wisdom teeth, you might need oral surgery.

Let's learn about the reasons you might need oral surgery!

6 Reasons You Might Need Oral Surgery

Here are 6 reasons that may require you to undergo oral surgery.

Loose Tooth

If you have a loose tooth, then we will examine it for determining which type of procedure will be the best choice for fixing it. If you have a healthy bone with no gum infections, then we may recommend dental implants, dentures, or other surgical procedures as a solution.

Wisdon Teeth

If you're experiencing persistent pain, fever, or swelling due to your wisdom teeth, then we recommend extraction with the help of surgery.


Sleep Apnea

If you suffer from sleep apnea or experience breathing problems during sleep, then oral surgery may be the solution to control the severe symptoms.

Misaligned Jaw

Although orthodontic appliances are often enough for treating misaligned jaws or teeth, sometimes oral surgery becomes essential for correcting misalignment that causes issues such as over or underbite.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) is a dysfunction of the diminutive joint which is close to the lower jaw. In some cases, we may recommend oral surgery for treating this condition.

Missing Teeth

Dental implants are the perfect solution for missing adult teeth. If you have lost a tooth in an accident or an injury, then we can perform an implant to replace it with a new tooth.
