Oral Surgery
Dental Surgery A number of conditions may require oral surgery, including: IMPACTED TEETH : More often than we like, one or more of the teeth fails to emerge in proper alignment or fails to fully emerge through the gum and becomes entrapped or "impacted" between the jawbone and the gum. Impacted teeth can result in swelling, pain, and infection of the gum surrounding the impacted teeth. In addition, impacted teeth can cause permanent damage to nearby teeth, gums, and bone and can sometimes lead to the formation of cysts or tumors that can destroy sections of the jaw. Therefore, dentists recommend people with impacted teeth have them surgically removed.
