Oral Surgery Instruments
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have extra training and education beyond what’s expected for a dentist. An oral surgeon can help you out of several situations.
Impacted teeth. This mostly happens with wisdom teeth, also called third molars. But it can happen in other places in your mouth, too. When the teeth come through the gums for the first time, it might be crowded, so they either don’t come out at all or don’t come out completely. This can cause sore gums and infections of the gum tissue surrounding the wisdom teeth. This can cause permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone and can sometimes lead to the formation of cysts or tumours that can destroy sections of the jaw.
Jaw-joint issues. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) connects your jaw to your skull. It’s that little “hinge” right in front of the ears. It can cause problems like pain in your jaw, jaw-popping, stiffness, and headaches. Most people with TMJ disorders can be successfully treated with a combination of oral medications, physical therapy, and splints. But joint surgery is an option for advanced cases.
Overbite/underbite. If your jaw or teeth aren’t aligned properly, your dentist may recommend orthognathic surgery. It’s an option for people with excessive overbites or underbites, trouble chewing or swallowing, certain birth defects, or sleep apnoea. In some people, the upper and lower jaws fail to grow properly. This can cause difficulty in speaking, eating, swallowing, and breathing. While some of these problems — like improper teeth alignment — can be corrected with braces and other orthodontic appliances, more serious problems require oral surgery to move all or part of the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both, into a new position that is more balanced, functional, and healthy.
Implants. You can replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. The surgeon imbeds a titanium implant into your jaw, then your dentist attaches a crown. Dental implants are an option for tooth loss due to an accident or infection or as an alternative to bridges and dentures.
Improve fit of dentures. For first-time denture wearers, oral surgery can be done to correct any irregularities of the jaws prior to creating the dentures to ensure a better fit. Oral surgery can also help long-term denture wearers.
Sleep and breathing issues. This covers things like snoring and sleep apnoea, a condition that causes you to stop breathing for brief periods during sleep. A doctor with special training may recommend a CPAP machine or other appliance that can open your airway. They may also want you to have surgery, and you’d go to an oral surgeon. The type of surgery you’d have would depend on what’s blocking your breathing. It could be that your airway just needs to be made bigger or it could mean that a specific part of your mouth or nasal passages needs to be adjusted.
Cancer treatment. Oral surgeons also treat cancers, not just of the mouth, but also of the head and neck, like of the salivary glands, sinuses, throat, larynx, and lips.
Oral surgeons can also help with:
- Nerve repair
- Cleft lips and cleft palate surgery
- Removal of lesions on the face or inside the mouth
- Facial injury repair
