Treating Dental Health Conditions
Oral surgery includes the diagnosis and 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.
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. A dental implant, together with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
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.
