At O'Connor Dental Health Group in Ottawa our dentists perform oral surgical procedures to treat dental issues, from tooth extractions to dental implants.
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery includes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries, and defects of the soft and hard tissues of the face, mouth, teeth, and jaws.
Less invasive approaches are preferred when providing treatment, but there are sometimes cases where less invasive measures won't work and you may need oral surgery.
Dental Implants in Ottawa
A standard dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like your tooth's natural root. Our dentist places dental implants as part of the process to replace missing teeth and help you restore and reimagine your smile. A dental implant, in combination with a tooth restoration such as dental crowns or bridges, will look and feel a lot like a natural tooth.
Extractions & Wisdom Tooth Removal in Ottawa
While we would prefer to save the natural tooth, it is not always possible. If a tooth is 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 a normal adult mouth. If the wisdom teeth are causing oral hygiene problems, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
Frenectomy in Ottawa
A frenectomy eliminates a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue, or lips to your gum area called a frenum. Our dentists perform frenectomies on babies, children, and adults if the frenum is restricting function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied, or cheek-tied.
Bone Grafts in Ottawa
A bone graft is an oral surgical procedure performed when your dentist has to add bone tissue to your jaw bone. This process aims to make your jaw strong enough to support a dental implant. It is a very important procedure if you are looking to alter your smile but have had poor oral health care in the past.
