Surgical Options For Your Teeth & Gums

Oral surgery encompasses a large number of things including 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 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.

The idea of oral surgery can be concerning to many patients. At Wellington Dental Clinic we offer sedation to keep you comfortable during your procedure and to make sure that you don't feel pain.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Dental implants are placed as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and assist in restoring your smile.  A dental implant with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.

Tooth Extractions

While it's always preferable to use less invasive treatments in an effort to save a patient's natural tooth, there are some cases where this is simply 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 pain or problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend having them extracted to help preserve your oral health.

Gum Grafts

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. This can help to cover exposed tooth roots, repair receding gums, and reduce associated symptoms such as severe tooth sensitivity or eventual tooth loss, to protect your oral health.
