Corrective Jaw Surgery
Orthognathic surgery is necessary when the jaws don’t correctly meet each other and/or when the teeth don’t seem to fit proportionately with the jaws. Teeth are straightened with orthodontics and aligned with corrective jaw surgery. This not only improves the appearance of your face, but also ensures that your teeth can meet correctly and function properly.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
By the time the average adult turns the age of 18, he or she should have 32 teeth; giving them 16 teeth on the top and 16 teeth on the bottom. Every tooth in the mouth has its own specific name and function. The teeth that are located in the front of the mouth (incisors, canine and bicuspid teeth) are ideal for grasping and biting food into smaller pieces. The teeth that are located in the back of the mouth (molar teeth) are used to grind food up into a suitable consistency to enable it to be easily swallowed.
An average mouth is only made to hold about 28 teeth, so it can be quite painful when 32 teeth try to fit in a mouth that is only meant to hold 28 teeth. These four other teeth are your third molars, which are likely known to you as “wisdom teeth.”
