What is this?
Some teeth are just in the wrong place at the wrong time, behaving in the wrong way. Oral surgery is a way for us to save you all the hassle by removing them. This type of maxillofacial surgery aims to rid the patient of unnecessary complications and pain stemming from those “awkward” teeth.
What does it help with?
Mostly, it alleviates the pain that badly damaged or unerupted teeth can cause. Very often this applies to the wisdom teeth. Sometimes they simply refuse to erupt, or they “go in the wrong direction” and thus endanger the surrounding teeth, and sometimes they come out with cavities. Through surgery, they can be removed so that they don’t do any more damage.
