At our Arthur clinic, our team of dentists perform a variety of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and provide necessary oral health care.
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery involves 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 attempt to use the least invasive treatment possible for any given dental problem, in some cases, these options are simply not sufficient and oral surgery is required.
While it's always preferable to save a natural tooth, in some cases it's just not possible. If a tooth is too severely damaged as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, it may need to be removed by your dentist.
Widsom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. If wisdom teeth are causing problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist might recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw and functions like a natural tooth root. Our dentists install dental implants as part of the process to replace a missing teeth and restore your smile. Together with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, a dental implant looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
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 dental implants. 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 dental implants.
