Our Burnaby dentists perform a variety of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and help preserve your oral health.
What is Oral Surgery?
When a dentist diagnoses an oral disease, surgery is sometimes required. Oral surgery includes all surgical treatment of defects and injuries in the face, mouth, teeth and jaws.
In some cases, less invasive treatment options are not sufficient, necessitating oral surgery. Our dentist will always use the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem until surgery is required.
Our Burnaby dentists always prioritize saving the natural tooth, but sometimes it is impossible. 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 issues with your oral hygiene or health, your dentist may recommend removing them.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that replaces a natural tooth root. Our dentists place dental implants as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and restore your smile. This dental implant functions, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
