Mending Problems of the Jaw and Mouth after Facial Trauma with Advanced Dental Procedures by Oral Surgeons

Mending Problems of the Jaw and Mouth after Facial Trauma with Advanced Dental Procedures by Oral Surgeons

There are a lot of injuries that cause Facial Trauma of the jaw and mouth. These injuries occur frequently in sports and car accidents. Plainview Oral And Maxillofacial Associates P.C. have oral surgeons and cosmetic dentists who can repair the damages of injuries like this. Individuals who have old injuries that caused tooth loss may have now suffered from bone loss under the gums. Bone under the gums where teeth are missing are atrophied which can cause a problem in dental patients who would like to get implants.

Bone Grafting for Bone Loss in the Jawline

The Degenerative bone loss in the jawline can be mended with major or minor bone grafting. Oral surgeons can grow bone where it is absent to accommodate implants. Dental patients appreciate that this procedure can restore distinct contours and fullness in the face that can disappear when teeth are missing for an extended time. Bone comes from a tissue bank, another part of the patient’s body or synthetic materials. For major grafting, membranes may be used to protect the bone and support proper bone reconstruction. A sinus lift procedure may need to be combined with bone grafting. Maxillary tissues are found behind cheeks and on the top set of teeth. A thin layer of bone remains between the maxillary sinus and mouth after tooth loss. Sinus walls that are too thin cannot receive implants. Sinus grafts correct this problem.

Revision Surgical Root Canals

The damages that happen after tooth loss from Facial Trauma may require root canal therapy. This is for individuals who’ve had previous restorative treatment with an unsuccessful root canal. A root canal has failed when there is still infection and inflammation at the end of the tooth root after the procedure. An x-ray can detect it. Patients should get x-rays to check the efficacy of root canals because the further infection can be present with no pain. This procedure is important because serious health problems can happen if infection of the tooth root goes untreated. The root is exposed by lifting enough gum tissue to reach the root. Cysts and infected tissue are removed from the tip of the root. A tiny filling is fixed to the root canals to provide an enclosure at the end of the tooth root.
