Am I A Good Candidate for Reconstructive Surgery?
From facial trauma to oral cancer, reconstructive surgery may be required to rebuild soft and hard tissues to restore normal function and appearance. Reconstructive surgery is often needed to replace missing teeth, correct faulty bites, help heal facial fractures and reconstruct missing soft and bony tissues. If left untreated, conditions such as these may lead to future problems. Reconstructive surgeries can range from simple to complex, and based on your age, injury and other factors, you may or may not be a good candidate. It’s best to consult with an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon who can decide if your condition warrants surgical treatment.
