Many issues that require the attention of an oral surgeon cause physical soreness or make daily tasks more difficult. Obstructions in your oral cavity may prevent you from sleeping well or interfere with your breathing. Underbites or overbites can make eating and swallowing a challenge. If your jaw joint area is damaged, it can cause migraines, stiffness and pain.
You do not have to live with these sources of discomfort. Modern health advances have made treatments available that can eliminate pain that interrupts your day and makes life harder. Your quality of life is worth a visit to Posada Dental for a quick consultation and checkup.
Do I Need an Oral Surgeon?
An oral surgeon specializes in addressing injuries, discomfort and damage within hard or soft tissues of the mouth, jaw, neck or other facial areas. These treatments are often more complex than what would be performed during a normal visit to your dentist.
It is always best to consult with your dentist about whether or not you need to visit an oral surgeon.
Examples of procedures that may require an oral surgeon include wisdom teeth removal, impacted teeth, reconstructive surgery, misaligned jaw (overbite/underbite), cleft lip, cyst removal, cancer treatments, obstructive sleep apnea solutions or other causes of physical aching.
