At our Winnipeg dental office, our dentists perform a range of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and preserve your oral health.
What is Oral Surgery?
The diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, defects and injuries of the hard and soft tissues of the mouth, face, teeth, and jaws is covered by oral surgery.
While our dentists always choose the least invasive treatment possible for any given dental issues, in some cases less invasive treatment alternatives will simply not be sufficient and oral surgery is needed.
This small titanium screw works similar to a natural tooth root. Dental implants are placed as part of the process to replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. Together with a tooth replacement such as a bridge or crown, a dental implant looks and feels very much like a natural tooth.
During a bone graft procedure, a dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone, strengthening it to support a dental implant. The bone will be grafted from another part of your body or special bone grafting material. This procedure may be recommended if your dentist believes your jaw bone is too thin or soft to support an implant.
While we always prefer to save a natural tooth, in some cases this proves impossible. If a tooth is too severely damaged due to decay, injury or gum disease, your dentist may need to remove it.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
The final set of molars emerge in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. If wisdom teeth are causing issues for your oral hygiene, the dentist may recommend having them removed to help preserve your oral health.
