What Is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery includes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth, and jaws.
We always use the least invasive treatment possible for any given dental problem. In some cases, less invasive treatment options are simply not sufficient and oral surgery is required.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Our dentists place dental implants as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and assist in restoring your smile. A dental implant, together with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
A gum graft is a procedure where gum tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth and transplanted onto another area of the gums. A gum graft can help to cover exposed tooth roots, repair receding gums, and reduce associated symptoms such as severe tooth sensitivity or eventual tooth loss, to protect your oral health.
While it's always preferable to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where it's not possible. If a tooth is too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease, or injury, your dentist may recommend an extraction.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that erupt in the back corners of the mouth. If your wisdom teeth cause problems with your oral hygiene, a dentist may suggest removing them to help preserve your oral health.
A frenectomy is a procedure used to eliminate a frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue, or lips to your gum area.
A bone graft is a procedure where your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone, making it strong enough to support a dental implant.
