For your convenience we can perform minor oral surgery procedures in our office, such as the extraction of teeth an other minor procedures.
When you hear the words oral surgery, you may think of a hospital setting, general anaesthesia, and one or more days in recovery from this type of dental procedure; but you might be surprised to know what is actually considered oral surgery in dentistry.
Many procedures done in a general dental office are considered oral surgery and patients that require such procedures are booked for the procedure without the inconvenience of being put on a waiting list for treatment.
Tooth Extractions are the most recognized form of oral surgery. Reasons for tooth extraction can range from: Impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth, teeth beyond repair either from tooth decay, root fracture, or trauma, primary teeth that have failed to fall out, preventing the eruption of permanent teeth,orthodontic treatment plans may require the removal of some teeth to achieve the optimum result.
Dental Implants are becoming a common procedure to replace missing teeth, or provide stability to a new or existing denture. Preformed by a dentist or oral surgeon or periodontist, the procedure for placing a dental implant may vary depending on the technique used by the dentist or surgeon, and type of implant used. Most people that have had a dental implant report the recovery was similar to that of a tooth extraction and they were able to return to normal eating within a week of the procedure.
