One thought on “What Are Your Alternatives to Oral Surgery?

    If oral surgery will give you a better quality of life and improve your appearance this is a good reason to go through with your decision. Patients that seem to have bone loss are typically good candidates for mini dental implants. Other criteria we look at include patients that do not smoke, grind their teeth, or have gum disease. If patients smoke or have other medical conditions, this increases the chance of implant failure. For example, if you have issues with snoring we may advise you try a night time mouthguard to help before we explore corrective surgery. When deciding to have oral surgery many patients would like to discuss if there are any alternatives instead of surgery. Part of our evaluation process is to discuss what alternatives are available, and give our patients all of their options. Surgery that corrects facial issues or replaces missing teeth to improve your appearance will benefit you immensely. In addition, if the oral surgery is to remove an infected or impacted tooth there is no alternative, and waiting is not an option.
