Dental Surgery, Wisdom Teeth Removal, Dental Implants and More

Oral surgery plays an important role in maintaining the long-term health of your smile. Our oral surgery services can help treat infected teeth, remove unnecessary teeth like wisdom teeth, replace missing teeth using dental implants, and more. In order to deem dental surgery necessary, your oral health will first be completely evaluated by our professionals so that they can diagnose the specific issue. Once the issue has been diagnosed, our team of dentists will discuss your restorative options with you and develop a customized treatment plan. Our oral surgery services include:

Wisdom Teeth Removal

  • Wisdom teeth, also called 3rd molars, usually come out during a person’s late teens, or early twenties
  • Some wisdom teeth, depending on their position, can cause severe pain as they come through the gum or years down the line, where cavities and gum problems occur
  • Every patient’s situation is unique and can be discussed in detail with your dentist when it comes to risk and complications
  • Lower wisdom teeth cause the most risk and complications, and in some cases, are better removed at a younger age, as the risk of nerve damage and complications would increase as the tooth completely develops
  • Impacted wisdom teeth can lead to pain, infection, ulcers, cavities, food trap, crowding, and cyst formation
  • Our office is very comfortable in removing complicated and impacted wisdom teeth with minimal sedation

Tongue-Tie Release

  • Depending on the type of attachment, a simple surgery can be done to release the attached fibers in order to increase the mobility of the lip and tongue
  • Patients can experience spacing between teeth, recession, and difficulty speaking because of limited movement
  • Exercises will be provided to increase tongue mobility and some patients may benefit from seeing a speech pathologist.
  • We offer a surgical option (non-laser) to children under (depending cooperation) and adults under local anaesthetic.

Dental Implants

  • Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed in the patient’s jaw to restore a missing tooth
  • Following placement of the implant, around 3-4 months is required for healing before the implant crown can be placed
  • If a tooth was previously extracted, allowing at least 2-3 months following the extraction would be ideal before implant placement in order to allow for bone to fill the socket
  • Immediate implants, on assessment of the extraction site, would allow for one single surgical visit. A bone graft will be discussed with you, and varies with patients
  • Learn more about the dental implant procedure

Extractions

  • Depending on the remaining tooth structure, presence of a catastrophic fracture, degree of gum disease and location, as well as the extensiveness of a cavity, the best option may be to proceed with a dental extraction.
  • Some procedures may be simple, and some depending on number of roots, degree of root curvature, as well as the thickness of bone, the tooth may require a surgical extraction. This entails sectioning the tooth and may require some coronal bone removal
  • Options after an extraction includes leaving the space, having a bridge, denture, or implant placed
  • Options for immediate implants can be discussed before surgery, as well as having a bone graft (socket preservation) to maintain surrounding bone following the extraction. If active infection is present, it would be advised to extract and allow for the site to heal before proceeding with an implant
