If you suffer from moderate to severe damage to the mouth, jaws or teeth, your medical or dental specialists have likely recommended reconstructive oral surgery. Issues that might call for reconstructive oral surgery include damage from things like:
- Incidents during sports or other activities
- Removal of oral cysts or tumors
- Congenital or developmental defects
This procedure is designed to accomplish two main goals. The first is repairing oral components to a more functional state. Damaged jaws are commonly the source of difficulties with speaking, chewing, swallowing, and even breathing. With reconstructive surgery, those abilities can be improved so they are easier to perform — often they are restored fully. Second, some damage to the face or jaw distorts facial features. Reconstructive surgery therefore also includes aspects of cosmetic surgery, restoring a patient’s natural appearance.
Every mouth is different and so is every incident that might call for reconstructive surgery. That’s why the Marconi Dental Group in Sacramento has a full team of oral specialists, general dentists, and even an in-house dental lab to support whatever your reconstructive surgery might require.
