How can jaw realignment surgery help me?
Dr West can help you in many different ways. If you’re wisdom teeth are coming through it may take jaw realignment surgery to remove them. An infection may require a root canal, or corrective jaw realignment surgery may be needed to fix damage resulting from an accident. If you have been the victim of an assault, then we can help you.
But it’s not just aesthetically that jaw realignment surgery can help. We can help remove growths and cysts, taking a biopsy ad having it sent off for testing. If a tumour is discovered, the Dr. West will work alongside an oncologist, and hopefully stop things before they get out of hand. When it comes to oral surgery, the faster a patient is treated, the more likely a full recovery will be made.
These are just a few of the many procedures carried out by our oral surgeon in Auckland. Whether it’s dealing with impacted wisdom teeth or fixing a broken jaw, we can help. Call us if you have any questions. Our friendly and dedicated staff will be more than happy to help in any way they can.
