Our Highmoor Dental dentist performs a variety of oral surgeries to treat dental issues and improve the oral health of our Edmonton patients.
Oral surgery includes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of injuries, defects and diseases in both the soft and hard tissues in your face, teeth, jaws and mouth.
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.
Dental implants are tiny titanium screws that function just like a natural tooth's root. Our dentists place dental implants as part of the process of replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile. A dental implant, together with tooth replacements like crowns, bridges or dentures, can look and feel like a natural tooth.
A gum graft is a procedure where gum tissue is taken from the roof of your mouth and transplanted onto another are of your gums. A graft can help you to cover up exposed tooth roots, repair receding gums and reduce associated symptoms like tooth sensitivity and tooth loss in order to protect your oral health.
While it is always desirable to save a natural tooth when treating oral health issues, there are some instances where that isn't possible. If a tooth is badly damaged by decayed, disease or injury, it may require removal by your dentist.
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt from the back corners of a normal adult's mouth. If wisdom teeth are causing problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them in order to preserve your oral health.
A frenectomy procedure to eliminate a frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue or lips to your gum area. Our dentists perform frenectomies for babies, children and adults when the frenum is restricting function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied.
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 raise and increase the amount of bone in the sinus area to place a dental implant.
