Tooth extraction involves having one or more teeth completely removed from your mouth. A tooth might require removal for a variety of reasons including periodontal disease, a decayed tooth, severely broken tooth, teeth overcrowding or having insufficient space for your wisdom teeth growth.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth removal involves taking out the wisdom teeth at the back of your mouth that are causing you problems.
If the wisdom teeth do not cause any problems, these would not need removal. If however there is insufficient space for the wisdom teeth to grow at the back of your mouth and it becomes impacted, they can cause pain, swelling or infection. Removing the impacted wiisdom teeth thus help relieve symptoms
Orthognathic surgery is used to correct conditions of the jaw and face related to structure, growth or to correct orthodontic problems that cannot be easily treated with braces. Orthognathic surgery is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon almost always in collaboration with orthodontic treatment, often including braces before and after surgery, and retainers after the final removal of braces.
Orthognathic surgery is often needed after reconstruction of cleft palate or other major craniofacial anomalies. Careful coordination between the surgeon and orthodontist is essential to ensure that the teeth will fit correctly after the surgery.
