Oral Treatment & Procedures
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.
While we always tray and 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.
Oral surgery can also be necessary for the placement of dental implants, removal of impacted wisdom teeth, and treatment of TMJ disorders.
At-home care and recovery time vary between procedures, but your Niagara Falls dentist should be able to give you the necessary advice to help get you back to your normal routine.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Our dentists place dental implants as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and assist in restoring your smile.
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,
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. Bone grafts can also help improve the overall appearance of the jawline.
A frenectomy procedure eliminates the 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.
