5 Symptoms indicate you need Oral Surgery

Dental care


Most of the times, the term ‘Oral surgery’ panics people. Imagining forceps & knives inserting into gums, can make anyone uncomfortable and nervous. However, pain is temporary and maintaining good oral health for lifelong is what matters the most.

Most of the people ignore dental problems. They think as long as they can drink and eat there is no need for a dental checkup. They are WRONG!

Having a regular checkup keeps our oral health intact for a longer time. Changing brush, using a proper toothpaste, brushing twice a day are some of the dental regimes.

In this post let’s see what all symptoms may cause severe dental damage. All these symptoms may indicate that you need an Oral surgery.


1) Impacted Wisdom Teeth


Most of the times, wisdom teeth cannot grow as they should which in turn causes pain. Some other problems such as there will be an opposing tooth contacting wisdom teeth every time you bite or they are difficult to clean etc.

As a solution, the tooth would have to be removed. In some cases, the tooth can be removed with a simple extraction. If your dentist recommends oral surgery, it is the best way to remove the impacted tooth.


2) Sleep Apnoea Treatment


According to the Mayo Clinic, Sleep Apnoea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times.

This sleeping disorder can be serious and often the best treatment is to surgically remove some tissue from the back of the throat. This clears the airway and relieves the symptoms. If you have noticed the symptoms of Sleep Apnoea, North Shore‌‌ dentist Sailors Bay Dentistry can perform oral surgery.

They have a very good customer service record an appointment can be scheduled in a single mouse click.


3) Dental Implants


Dental implants are a permanent treatment for a missing tooth. Generally, these are done on a damaged or missing teeth thus they provide solid support to new teeth.

The process involves inserting a titanium pin into the jawbone, which fuses with the bone to provide a solid anchor onto which the prosthetic tooth can be attached.

This treatment often requires oral surgery.

4) Incorrect Jaw Alignment


People who want to go for their jaw alignment corrections, there are easy options such as braces, headgear etc.

In rare cases, a misaligned jaw might require surgery. This surgery will realign the jaw, making it easier to chew food. Normally seen in adults & children, incorrect jaw alignment is quite common these days.

If you are concerned or embarrassed about your jaw alignment, take a dental appointment. There are many options available which depend on your condition.


5) Dental Issues


Seeing your dentist twice a year for check-ups is mandatory. If you experience any pain or discomfort anytime please do visit a doctor without ignoring it.

Early diagnosis often means less invasive treatment, which is preferable than bearing pain & money at a later point in time. Some people have an inherent fear of the dentist. This can cause a person to skip the check-ups which in turn lead to severe dental issues.

Oral surgery is nothing to be afraid of and with a qualified oral surgeon in control, the treatment is painless and doesn’t take very long.

    I am one of those people who are apprehensive of oral surgery. I have an impacted wisdom tooth which I am trying hard to ignore.

      Find a good surgeon and get it done!

    My son had his wisdom teeth removed by an oral surgeon a few months ago. I was impressed by the care he received. The wisdom teeth were badly impacted and infected, causing pain, swelling, and a fever.

    1. Hackytips says:

      Wisdom teeth can be very painful. Good, you guys took care of it.

  3. You, Me and Benny says:

    We thought my husband was going to have to have oral surgery and he didn’t! We were relieved!

    I had to get a wisdom tooth removed! It was no fun, but it felt so much better after it was done.

    1. Hackytips says:

      Good to know it went well!

    I’m so happy I don’t have any of this right now.

  6. I had impacted wisdom teeth. It obviously required surgery, but fortunately I didn’t have any complications from it. Finding the right oral surgeon is important though.

    1. Hackytips says:

      Good to know you found the right one! 🙂

  7. Ashley K. says:

    Anything dentist/mouth related generally is not fun, but you are right…it is so important. I had impacted wisdom teeth that I had removed when I was 23. Luckily, the surgery went well, but I delayed it for years due to being afraid! One word of advice is to definitely research good dentists/oral surgeons in your area before doing anything!

    1. Hackytips says:

      Agree, good dentists can really save a life!

  8. Goodness – I remember having oral surgery to remove a tooth that was growing in the roof of my mouth over 30 years ago. I recall waking up and crying non-stop – not due to pain, but due to the anesthetic that was used at that time. Apparently it was a common side effect. Wondering if that’s different nowadays. I also remember swollen cheeks, but I must’ve had a great oral surgeon, because I don’t remember pain or discomfort. Thanks for the informational post!

    1. Hackytips says:

      Great you could get it done! Kudos 🙂

  9. This is super interesting. I had no idea that the need for oral surgery could leas to sleep apnea.

    1. Hackytips says:

      Yeah they seem small right?

  20. My husband ended up having to have oral surgery about a year ago. Glad it all turned out well! I’ve had some experience myself being a dental assistant and was able to lightly inform him of what to expect. Thanks for the info!
