When Does a Problem Require the Care of an Oral Surgeon?
There are many symptoms that can initially bring patients to see their dentist, but turn out to be signs of an issue that requires the more specific treatment of an oral surgeon. Our surgeons handle a variety of problems for patients on a routine basis, each one performed using state-of-the-art equipment.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
When the four wisdom teeth fail to grow properly, it can lead to problems like cysts, infections, and gum disease. Wisdom teeth growth can also lead overcrowding, causing the surrounding teeth to become misaligned.
Orthognathic surgery is type of corrective surgery that is a beneficial option for patients with jaw injuries caused by a car accident or other trauma or those who were born with an irregular bite. Jaw problems can lead to significant issues with a patient’s ability to chew, speak, sleep and other necessary daily functions.
Symptoms of sleep apnea include snoring, irregular sleep cycles, and daytime drowsiness. The long-term consequences of untreated sleep apnea, however, are less well-known and can be much more serious. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been connected to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and adverse reactions to medications. Nasal surgery and removal or restructuring of excess tissue in the throat and soft palate can treat OSA.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can lead to a host of problems. Teeth grinding and jaw clenching is a common cause of TMJ pain and dysfunction. Dislocation of the jaw, arthritis, stress, and jaw disease can also lead to painful TMJ problems. Our skilled oral surgeons can perform TMJ surgery in some cases. We are committed to providing effective and life-changing treatment and relief for our patients dealing with a TMJ disorder.
We offer a range of dental implant options for patients who are looking to replace one or several teeth. We take time to discuss the different options with our patients, and help them make the best choice to improve their quality of life. Dental implants can involve a dental bridge, dental crown, or a partial or complete denture, depending on the patient’s individual needs.
We are also happy to offer some patients our Teeth in a Day procedure, which gives them the option to have temporary but fully functional teeth in just one appointment.
Preparing for Your Initial Consultation
Remember to bring a photo ID, insurance cards, referrals, and any recent X-rays to your initial consultation with a South Harrison Township oral surgeon. Our team is happy to help with obtaining any previous X-rays and records and can also address any questions or concerns you may have before your initial consultation.
Our staff will review your medical history at your first appointment and discuss any allergies to medications and previous medical conditions. An oral surgeon will also review any previous X-rays and test results before performing an examination. After the exam, your doctor will give you an explanation of the problematic oral condition and discuss the best treatment options.
If it is determined that surgery is required to solve your particular problem, your oral surgeon will review the procedure, surgical instructions, and aftercare expectations so that you feel fully prepared and at ease throughout the process.
