At Redwood Dental Centre in Winnipeg, our dentists can treat dental issues and improve your oral health through a range of oral surgery procedures.
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery involves the diagnosis and surgical treatment of issues relating to the face, mouth, teeth, and jaws. This can include the treatment of diseases, injuries, or defects of the hard and soft tissue in these areas.
While our dentists 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.
Dental implants are used during the process of replacing missing teeth to restore your smile. Our dentists will implant a small titanium screw into your jawbone that functions like a natural tooth root. The dental implant, used in combination with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
While it is always preferable to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where it is not possible. Your dentist may need to remove your tooth if it has been too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease, or an injury.
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 with your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them.
A frenectomy is a procedure used to eliminate a frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue, or lips to your gum area. Our dentists perform frenectomies for babies, children, and adults when the frenum is restricting function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied, or cheek-tied.
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 a dental implant. 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 a dental implant.
