No one wants to undergo surgery, but sometimes it is necessary to correct major physical problems. When it comes to dental care especially, some treatment plans require oral surgery to ensure effective care. Rest assured, patients of the Los Alamitos, California area are in great hands with Dr. Hatem Abdelhadi.
As the name suggests, oral surgery refers to any surgical procedure that takes place inside your mouth and can be done to correct any number of common dental problems. Only the most qualified dental care professional can undertake these kinds of procedures, so it is especially important that you use a dentist that you can trust and can furnish plenty of accreditations and references. The equipment involved in a typical oral surgery, after all, can be quite complex.
There are many reasons to undergo oral surgery, though all of them typically require a specific set of skills to treat. The following are just a few of the most common situations that could necessitate surgery.
Wisdom tooth extraction: This is a common surgical procedure that should be undertaken once the wisdom teeth start to come in. After they have become impacted, they will need to be removed.
Correct missing teeth: Usually in the form of dental implants, this type of surgery should be done to treat your missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue.
Endodontic treatment: While known better as a root canal, endodontic procedures will fix structural issues in your mouth.
While dental implants, root canals, and wisdom tooth extraction make up the bulk of common oral surgeries, other procedures might better apply to you. For example, jaw issues including temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders tend to require highly specialized oral surgery, and you should discuss these options with your dentist.
The benefits of oral surgery depend on, for the most part, the type of surgery involved. While a procedure such as dental implants might be more suited to fix the appearance of your teeth cosmetically, an endodontic surgical treatment will solve structural problems and prevent future infection.
