What Problems do Oral Surgeons Fix?

Impacted Teeth

Wisdom teeth or third molars as picture below are the last tooth to develop in the mouth. These third molars often fail to emerge in proper alignment or fail to fully emerge through the gum line and becomes entrapped or “impacted” between the jawbone and the gum tissue. Dentists recommend people who have impacted teeth to have them removed surgically.

Tooth Loss

Dental implants are an ideal option for people who have lost their tooth or teeth. The implants are tooth root substitutes that are surgically installed in the missing tooth/teeth place in the jawbone and act as an artificial tooth/teeth.
