Treating Complex Dental Issues
Oral surgery involves the diagnosis and treatment of complex dental conditions. It encompasses a wide range of procedures, including tooth extractions, dental implants, gum grafts and bone grafts.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your mouth or jaw, it is important to seek the advice of a dentist who can help you determine the best course of treatment for your specific condition.
At The Hunt Club Dental Centre, we always try and use the least-invasive treatment possible. But in some cases, the least-invasive option is insufficient and oral surgery is required.
Combined with dental technology, oral surgery can provide effective solutions for even the most challenging dental problems.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Our dentist places 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.
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, it may need to be removed by your dentist.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. If the wisdom teeth are causing problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
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.
A frenectomy procedure is used to eliminate a frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue or lips to your gum area. Our dentist performs frenectomies for babies, children and adults when the frenum is restricting function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied.
Our Ottawa dentist performs bone grafts A bone graft is an oral surgery procedure where your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone, making it strong enough to support a dental implant.
