For more than three decades, dental implants have transformed restorative dentistry by stabilizing dental prostheses in the same way as natural teeth roots. #DentalImplants #LincolnOralSurgeon

The lower jawbone, or mandible, is hinged by two joints, called the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). Located on either side of the face in front of each ear, the TMJs move in tandem when the mouth bites, chews, speaks, or otherwise opens and closes. #JawSurgeon

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that involves taking a small amount of healthy bone tissue and transferring it to build up bone density and mass in another area of the body. As we chew, our dental roots stimulate blood flow to the surrounding areas of the jawbone. #OralSurgeon #MaxillofacialSurgeon #JawSurgeon

Between the ages of 17 and 25, most individuals' third set of molars, more commonly known as #WisdomTeeth, erupt from the jaw. Unlike other teeth, these four molars are not necessary to proper oral function, and they are routinely extracted because of complications. #OralSurgeon #DentalSurgeon

The lower jaw, or mandible, is a vital component of dental health and function. It controls the movement of the mouth, and in order to operate efficiently, it relies on symmetry and balance. Corrective jaw surgery can create improved balance. #MaxillofacialSurgeon #OralSurgeon

Advanced decay and infection can sometimes reach into the pulp of a tooth. Located at the center of each tooth, the pulp is a chamber that houses nerves and blood vessels. Once infected, these tissues can die, and an abscess, or pocket of infection, can form at the end of the tooth’s root, destroying gum tissue, jawbone, and surrounding teeth, as well as the tooth itself. #DentalSurgeon #OralSurgeon

Whether a tooth is lost to severe damage or disease, or requires extraction to preserve overall oral health, even a single empty tooth socket can contribute to gradual deterioration of the jawbone. #OralSurgeon #DentalImplants #MaxillofacialSurgeon

Missing teeth affect your ability to speak and eat, and can lead to other oral and general health problems. #OralSurgeon #DentalSurgeon

When oral health conditions arise that routine dental treatment cannot address, their consequences can affect a wide range of dental functions, and treating the issue may require surgical expertise. With impressive knowledge and experience, an #oralsurgeon is specifically trained to detect, diagnose, and treat even the most challenging cases.
