Surgical Solutions for Oral Health Issues

Oral surgery refers to a range of treatments that can be used to fix dental issues regarding the mouth, teeth, and jaw. While routine dental care, along with brushing and flossing, can help protect your smile, unexpected issues can arise.

Extensive tooth damage or decay, advanced periodontal (gum) disease and traumatic injuries can leave you in need of surgical intervention. These dental conditions cannot improve on their own and are too advanced for other, non-invasive treatments.

We offer nitrous oxide, also known as 'laughing gas', for your oral surgery, so you don't have to worry about feeling any pain or discomfort. If you need a surgical procedure that requires general anesthesia, we will refer you to an oral surgeon. Following surgery, you will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any related soreness.

If we are recommending oral surgery, we will ensure that you are fully aware of your options and we will provide you with a detailed treatment plan. We will also explain each step of the procedure to you.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Your dentist will surgically place the implant into the jaw bone as part of the process to replace a missing tooth. A dental implant, together with a tooth replacement, such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels very similar to your natural teeth.

Tooth Extractions

We believe that it is always preferable to save a natural tooth when possible, but there are some cases where it's just not feasible. If a tooth is too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease, or injury, your dentist may recommend removing it in order to relieve discomfort and restore your oral health.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

As you enter adulthood, your final set of molars, or wisdom teeth, will erupt in the back corners of your mouth. While they can grow in without causing issues, there are many cases where they need to be removed surgically. If the wisdom teeth are causing pain or crowding of other teeth, your dentist may recommend having them extracted.


The frenum connects your cheeks, tongue or lips to your gums. We perform frenectomies for babies, children and adults whose frenum is restricting the movement of the mouth and tongue, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied. The frenum can be surgically altered to increase the range of motion of your mouth or tongue.
