Our Etobicoke dentists at Park Lawn Dental perform a variety of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and improve overall oral health.
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery includes procedures used in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of oral diseases, injuries and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws.
Although our dentists always prefer to use the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem, in some cases, less invasive treatment options are simply not sufficient to treat the problem and oral surgery is required.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions as the root of a natural tooth. Our dentists at Park Lawn Dental offer dental implants as part of the process to replace missing teeth and restore your smile.
A dental implant, together with a natural-looking artificial tooth such as a crown or bridge, can provide patients with a solution to missing teeth that looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
While our dentists always strive to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where it's not practical. If a tooth is too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, it may need to be removed.
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of an adult mouth. If your wisdom teeth are causing pain or problems with your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
A bone graft is a minor surgical procedure where your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone to strengthen it, improve bone loss, and prepare your jaw for another dental procedure such as the placement of a dental implant.
A sinus lift is a type of bone graft that your dentist can perform on the upper back jaw to raise and increase the amount of bone in the sinus area to prepare the jaw for the placement of a dental implant in the upper jaw.
A gum graft is a surgical procedure that thickens gums by placing gum tissue from one area of the mouth into another where the gums have receded. This procedure may be done to protect your teeth from the damaging effects of gum recession, to relieve sensitivity or for aesthetic purposes.
A frenectomy is a procedure that can be done to eliminate a problematic frenum, (a small piece of tissue connecting your cheeks, tongue or lips to your gum area). Frenectomies can be done for babies, children and adults if the frenum is restricting function, often referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied.
