What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery involves the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws.
Although we always use the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem, in some cases, oral surgery is necessary.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that functions like a natural tooth root. Our dentists at Edmundston place dental implants to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.
During a gum graft, a small amount of tissue is removed from the patient's palate and grafted to the site of decay. This helps to cover exposed tooth roots, halt gum recession and alleviate associated symptoms such as severe tooth sensitivity or eventual tooth loss.
Sometimes, a tooth can be damaged by gum disease, impaction or advanced decay. The tooth may be too damaged to be saved and will have to be removed.
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to appear in adulthood and are among the most frequently extracted teeth. Your dentist may suggest removing them to maintain good oral health.
A frenectomy is a safe procedure that consists of cutting the lingual or labial brake. These are located, respectively, under the tongue and lips.
In a bone graft, your dentist adds bone tissue to your jawbone to strengthen it so it can support a dental implant.
