Oral Surgery, Ottawa Dentist

What is Oral Surgery?

Oral surgery is the diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaw.

It can offer a permanent solution for impacted teeth, missing teeth and severe tooth decay. It can also improve oral health, alleviate pain and enhance the appearance of your smile.

We always try and use the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem. However, in some cases, less invasive treatment options are simply not sufficient and oral surgery is required.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Dental implants are paired with a restoration, such as a crown or denture, implants can provide a functional replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting solution for restoring your smile. 

Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts

If your jawbone is too weak for a dental implant, your dentist may recommend a bone graft. This procedure that adds bone tissue to your jawbone to strengthen it. A sinus lift is a type of bone graft where your dentist adds bone material to the upper back jaw to raise and increase the amount of bone in the sinus area to place a dental implant.

Tooth Extractions

While it's ideal 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, it may need to be removed by your dentist. Your dentist may also recommend an extraction if your teeth are overcrowded.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth, They can damage surrounding teeth if they erupt on an angle, or if there isn't enough space for them to erupt properly. In these cases, your dentist may recommend removal.
