Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth in the jaws.
The reasons for losing teeth can be varied, but no matter what the cause, their loss can impact on both appearance and function.
Dentoalveolar surgery involves that part of the jaws (the alveolus) that contains or has contained teeth.
This surgery is either undertaken under general anaesthesia in a hospital, or in a clinic under local anaesthesia, with or without sedation.
Often there’s not enough space for wisdom teeth to emerge through the gums easily.
In these cases the tooth may become wedged or ‘impacted’.
Orthognathic surgery, also called corrective jaw surgery, is performed to correct a wide range of major and minor facial skeletal and dental abnormalities including malalignment of the upper and lower jaws and teeth.
