Surgical Options For Your Teeth & Gums
Oral surgery includes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth, and jaws.
Dental issues that require oral surgery can be caused due to trauma, illness, infection, poor oral hygiene, or a combination of these factors.
While we always use the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem, in some cases, less invasive treatment options are simply not sufficient and oral surgery is required.
At Warmstone Family Dentistry, our dentists provide a range of oral surgery services to help care for our patients' oral health. Our Stittsville dental team will always ensure that you are aware of the what the recommended procedure entails, as well as why it is being suggested.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a tooth root. Our dentists place dental implants as part of replacing a missing tooth and help restore your smile. A dental implant, with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels like a natural tooth.
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.
We at Warmstone Family Dentistry believe it's always preferable to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where it's not possible. If a tooth or teeth are too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, your dentist will want to remove the tooth with an extraction.
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, such as infection, bad breath, or damage to the other teeth, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts
A bone graft is a procedure where your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone, making it strong enough to support a dental implant. A sinus lift is a type of bone graft where your dentist adds bone material to the upper back jaw to increase the amount of bone in the sinus area.
