The Surgical Dental and Jaw Surgery Treatment

The Surgical Dental and Jaw Surgery Treatment

Sometimes orthodontic treatment may not be enough to solve the jaw problems you may face. In such cases, jaw and dental surgery can be the ideal solution when it comes to middle and upper level jaw disorders. Jaw and dental surgeons, who have the ability to significantly improve the most basic human functions such as chewing, breathing and speaking, also contribute to the aesthetic appearance of the patient.

In Which Situations Is Jaw and Dental Surgery Needed?

Most situations that require jaw surgery occur when the jaw follows an abnormal growth pattern during the developmental stage. It should be noted here that these jaw problems, which occur during the developmental stage, are mostly inherited. Other factors that require jaw and dental surgery are hard blows to the face or inflammation that can occur in the jaw joints. So, what are the symptoms that you may feel the need for having a surgery for the tooth? Here are some of them:

- Difficulty biting, chewing and swallowing
- Decomposition of teeth as a result of overuse
- Chronic jaw pain
- Desire to get rid of “gingival smiles” (the situation where most of the gums are visible under the lips when smiling)
- Facial imbalances
- Sleep apnea
- Other chronic jaw disorders

What are the Types of Jaw and Dental Surgery?

Jaw surgery can be performed for aesthetic purposes as well as for purely medical and health purposes. It is possible to list some of the situations that require surgical intervention to the jaw and tooth as follows:

1. Tooth Extraction

Tooth extraction (tooth pulling) is an oral and jaw surgery procedure that refers to the extraction of the tooth from its socket called a "pocket" or "socket" in the bone. If a simple tooth extraction is in question, it can only be done using local anesthesia. If the orthodontic treatment of the mentioned tooth is not possible, the only solution is tooth extraction treatment. Conditions with bone pathologies (cyst or tumor formation), or conditions which require implant surgery, procedures for bone formation and conditions which require tissue preparation before prosthesis are the treatment methods in which tooth extraction is concerned. While simple tooth extraction can be performed with local anesthesia, in more complicated cases, the dentist may prefer to use general anesthesia.
In some cases, it may be predictable that the tooth to be extracted should first be divided into sections and then extracted. In such cases, surgical tooth extraction can be performed with local anesthesia as in normal extraction. To reach the tooth, the bone is removed, the tooth is partitioning, and each piece is pulled out one by one, and the remaining area is cleaned and treated. Of course, such procedures should be performed by a professional and experienced dentist.

2. Impacted Tooth Surgery

Impacted or embedded tooth is defined as teeth that should have come out in the mouth, but have not come out even though the time has passed. Some impacted teeth may remain completely inside the jawbone, while others may not be visible because they are in the right place but are covered with soft tissue. It is possible to find many factors that affect the impact of teeth. Genetic factors, displacement of adjacent teeth, narrow jaw, infections caused by tooth decay in the milk teeth that are not treated in a timely manner can be shown among these reasons. However, it is also possible to say that the lower wisdom teeth, upper wisdom teeth and third incisors are more frequently impacted.
In the case of impacted teeth, orthodontic treatment should be considered primarily in terms of both aesthetics and functionality. In cases where orthodontic treatment is insufficient, impacted tooth surgery comes into play. It is possible to say that jaw surgery is applied especially in teeth that cannot be moved orthodontically. It is quite natural to have pain, swelling and bruising in the related bone tissues, for a short time, after the impacted tooth surgery. If the surgery is performed professionally, these side effects will disperce within a few days and the pain will cease. In case of persistent and/or intensive pain, it is useful to consult a dentist as soon as possible.
In the process after the impacted tooth is removed, the care phase of the patient is at least as important as the surgery itself. During the first 24 hours, food should not be eaten with the side from which the impacted tooth was removed, and no pressure should be applied to that area. After the procedure, nothing should be eaten for the first 2 hours, and then only warm and liquid food should be consumed. After the procedure, you should not smoke for at least 24 hours, and ice compresses should be applied to minimize bruising and swelling during the first 24 hours. If stitches were placed in the relevant area during the impacted tooth surgery, these stitches can be removed after 7 days from the operation.

3. Dental Plastic Surgery

Short or worn teeth, glaring gums during smiling, different gingival levels and similar aesthetic appearance disorders are removed by dental plastic surgery. In these treatment methods, which are also known as plastic periodontal surgery, it is possible to give a new form, a new position and a new appearance to the missing or extra gingival tissues.

4. 20th-Tooth (Wisdom Tooth) Surgery

Wisdom teeth, which are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth or twentieth teeth, are known as molars that found at the end of both sides of the jaw and the last ones that we have. These teeth may differ from person to person, depending on different factors such as genetic and racial characteristics, dietary habits and the participation of teeth in the oral structure. However, these teeth usually come out between the ages of 21-22 in women and between the ages of 20-23 in men. Wisdom teeth, which may also be impacted in the jaws, require external intervention in such cases.
If the soft tissue around the impacted wisdom tooth has formed an infection or gingival abscess, or if the semi-protruded semi-impacted wisdom tooth has started to decay, also if it has started to cause pressure pain to other teeth and gums in the area although it is impacted, and if it has started to cause crowding in the mouth, that tooth needs to be extracted by surgery.
During wisdom tooth surgery, the extraction of wisdom teeth may vary depending on the position of the tooth, its position, size and condition in the bone. It is essential to consult the best doctor in dental and jaw surgery for the wisdom teeth which requires a complicated operation process. In our clinic, you can find experienced and professional doctors who specialize in dental and jaw surgery, including wisdom tooth extraction.
