Why Might I Need Jaw Reconstruction Surgery From an Oral Surgeon?

Cancer treatments and radiation therapy can cause changes to the jaw that might later require surgical repair. In addition, if you suffer from a severe facial injury such as a fractured jaw, the placement of dental implants, or other diseases of the mouth, jaw reconstruction might be considered necessary to get your oral health back on track.
