When your teeth and mouth become significantly damaged, sometimes the best way to restore your oral health is through oral surgery. Some of the situations in which Dr. Brian J. Waggle may recommend oral surgery in Zanesville, Ohio, include:
- Advanced decay or damage
- Problematic wisdom teeth
- Missing teeth
- Jaw problems
If you have impacted, or trapped, wisdom teeth, our dentist may surgically remove them to avoid damage to the surrounding teeth. When a patient suffers from unequal jaw growth, the upper and lower jaws do not align properly. This can cause issues with speaking, eating, swallowing or even breathing. In serious cases of unequal jaw growth, our dentist may perform oral surgery to correct the problem.
At Northpointe Dental, we can provide oral surgery in limited circumstances. If necessary, our dentist will refer you out to one of his trusted oral surgery colleagues to receive the care that you need. We invite you to call or visit our office soon to learn more about oral surgery and how we can improve your oral health. Please contact us immediately at 740-454-6644 if you or your child is suffering from pain or discomfort in the teeth or gums. We will do our best to see you as soon as possible.
