Dental Reconstructive Surgery



Can bridges and dental fractures be considered reconstructive surgery?


Dental bridges are not considered reconstructive surgery; however, I would think that fractures would be. An oral surgeon should answer that question. Some types of dental bridges could be part of a reconstruction after trauma or cancer resections.

I have also forwarded your question to an oral surgeon.  Please check back for an answer in 2-3 days in the area called "Surgery of the Face and Jaw."
