Can Oral Surgery Transform Your Smile?An imperfect smile can affect the quality of your life. It can lower your confidence in smiling and attending social occasions. Luckily, the advancements in dental technology can help to transform your smile through oral surgery. Oral surgery helps to address both oral issues and cosmetics concerns. Do you know that your oral health can affect your smile? For instance, severe gum disease can lead to tooth loss, making your smile unattractive. Here are 3 ways an oral surgery can make a smile makeover.

Dental Implants


Tooth loss is a leading cause of an unattractive smile. Fortunately, you can replace a missing tooth with dental implants to enhance your smile while improving your overall oral health. While some dental replacement options can enhance your smile, they do not maintain the jawbone. An adequate jawbone is vital for teeth retention and oral health. That's why a dental implant is an effective way to replace a missing tooth. It involves oral surgery to insert titanium screws into the jawbone to prevent bone loss.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth Extraction


Impacted wisdom teeth can affect your oral health and smile. For instance, it can make the neighboring teeth shift, causing misalignment. Misaligned teeth can impact your smile and confidence. In this case, an oral surgeon may recommend extraction to prevent these issues. In cases where the tooth becomes stuck below the gum, a surgeon may need to remove the gum tissues for easy navigation.

Bone Graft


The jawbone plays a vital role in improving your smile. It holds teeth in place to prevent tooth loss. It also enhances the success of dental implants. In this case, a surgeon may suggest a bone graft in situations of inadequate jawbone. This involves using transplanted bone to add volume to the jawbone. Are you looking to transform your smile?
