Patients with missing or damaged teeth can receive long-term tooth replacement with the help of oral surgery. An oral surgeon can quickly extract damaged teeth and replace them with implants before the jawbone is affected. If you’ve had missing teeth for a long time, you may need a bone grafting surgical procedure to transplant healthy bone to your jaw. Then you will be eligible to receive dental implants.
Enhance Your Facial Appearance
The jawbone provides several benefits to your oral health and facial aesthetics. But if your jawbone has deteriorated due to long-term missing teeth, you’ll need oral surgery to correct the problem via bone grafting. Jawbone restoration will strengthen your jawbone and enhance your facial appearance. Any previous sagginess or distortion in your facial appearance will get corrected.
Restore Chewing Ability
Oral surgery can help realign your jaw if it is misaligned because of missing or damaged teeth. An aligned jaw will restore your natural ability to chew food properly. Once you can do that, it will significantly improve your digestive and physical health. That, of course, has positive effects on the entire body.
Restore Speech Clarity
Missing teeth and a misaligned jawbone can have negative consequences on speech clarity. But if you get your missing teeth replaced and your misaligned jawbone realigned, your full speech capabilities will get restored.
Oral pain in your jaw, tooth, or gums can feel excruciating. Sometimes, the only way to get severe oral pain to disappear is through oral surgery. Our best dentist in Santa Monica can make that determination after an emergency exam of your oral health.
