Types of Oral Surgery
Surgical removal of impacted wisdom tooth is the removal of impacted third molars that normally grow in at around age 18 to 20 years.
A wisdom tooth is just as useful as any other tooth if they grow in properly with a proper bite relationship and healthy gum tissue. If the wisdom tooth does not erupted properly, they are referred to as impacted. Impacted teeth can result in infection, decay of adjacent teeth, gum disease or other problems. Many dentists thus recommend the removal of impacted wisdom teeth to prevent potential problems.
Your thailand oral surgeon does a checkup and examines corresponding x-rays to determine if the teeth are impacted. Every case is different and only your oral surgeon can determine if there is a reason for you to have a tooth removed.
Tooth extraction is removal of teeth and may be done when:
- the tooth is severely decayed
- there is advanced periodontal disease (“gum disease”)
- the tooth may be broken such that it cannot be repaired
- other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth)
- preparation for orthodontic treatment (“braces”)
Normal tooth extraction is a simple process and is normally completed in one visit done by your thailand oral surgeon. After tooth is removed, the gums is usually left to heal before the gap is replaced by dental bridges, dental implants or dentures in preventing predispose teeth in the long term.
Orthognathic surgery refers to the surgical repositioning of the maxilla, mandible, and the dentoalveolar segments to achieve facial and occlusal balance. One or more segments of the jaw can be simultaneously repositioned to treat various types of malocclusions and jaw deformities.
Preoperative diagnosis and planning between orthodontist and craniofacial surgeon is required to ascertain the feasibility of various treatment options.
Usually, pre-surgical orthodontics are necessary to straighten the teeth and align the arches so that a stable occlusion can be obtained post-operatively, while orthodontics following surgery are frequently required to revise minor occlusal discrepancies.
Bonegraft surgery is done where to re-establish bone dimension in dental implants treatment or in periodontal treatment.
There are different types of bonegraft materials available. Each of the bonegraft materials is usually developed with a specific purpose or advantage in mind. Your thailand oral surgeon or dental specialist will make a decision with respect to the bonegraft material based on your individual needs and the latest research in that field.
Dental implants are man-made replacement for natural teeth root similar to having a new set of permanent teeth. There are several types of dental implants options and dental systems available on the market today.
Pre-prosthetic surgery refers to any oral surgery treatment such as gingivectomy or crown-lengthening that is done prior to restorative dental works in re-establishing function of teeth or improving esthetics of teeth.
