When you want to live a healthy and happy life, it is important that you take the time to pay attention to your oral health. In fact, your oral health is one of the most important factors that influences just how good your overall health is. Without strong teeth, you might end up being unable to eat healthy food or even to speak with family or friends easily, which can have a big impact on your overall quality of life. With all of that said, of course, sometimes it is just not possible to keep all of your natural teeth in place. When that happens, DFW Oral Surgeons can help you with the best reconstructive surgery we have to offer.
When a patient has significant issues with the vast majority of their teeth, they might find themselves in need of reconstructive surgery. Much like the name implies, reconstructive surgery is a surgical procedure that focuses on restoring functionality to someone’s mouth and jaw. For a patient that has few remaining teeth or none at all, for example, reconstructive surgery can be used to help rebuild the structural integrity of their mouths as well as to provide them with teeth replacement options that allow them to eat and speak as normally as possible.
Reconstructive surgery can be used to grant patients a new lease on life, essentially, offering them the chance to live as normally as possible despite the condition of their natural teeth. This is particularly helpful for individuals who have been born with disorders that might make maintaining their natural teeth difficult, if not impossible. We work closely with our patients to offer a solution that works for their specific needs. Reconstructive surgery is used to refer to any surgery that affects all of a patient’s teeth, whether that means fully replacing them or simply working to reconstruct and restore teeth that remain in place.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Reconstructive Surgery?
Reconstructive surgery is not a procedure that we take lightly, and the majority of our patients do not require something quite so involved. With that said, there are certain conditions or situations that make this surgery the best choice for everyone involved. This includes situations where a patient has been in an accident, for example, and has lost the functionality of most of their teeth and their jaw. Another example might be the patient who has undergone treatment for oral cancer and is left with a mouth that is full of failing teeth and other issues that make functioning difficult. In both of these cases, reconstructive surgery is the best option to help give the patient the best chance at a normal life as possible.
If you think that you might be a good candidate for reconstructive surgery, you should reach out and contact us today at (972) 539-1491!
