We offer a variety of oral surgery procedures at Kerhoulas Dental Rosedale to meet your individual needs with the goal of improving your oral health.
Oral surgery involves the diagnosis and surgical treatment for diseases, defects and injuries compromising the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws.
While, ideally, we would always like to use the least invasive treatment options available, sometimes that course of action just won't work and oral surgery is required.
A dental implant uses a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Dental implants aim to reshape a patient's smile after the loss of a tooth. A dental implant, in conjunction with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
If at all possible, we would always prefer to salvage a natural tooth, but there are some cases when it is too far gone. If a tooth is too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, your dentist may recommend complete removal in order to prevent health issues from arising.
A frenectomy procedure eliminates 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.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. If your wisdom teeth are causing you to experience pain or lead to problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
A gum graft is a procedure where gum tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth and moved onto another area of the gums. A gum graft can cover exposed tooth roots, repair receding gums and reduce any associated symptoms such as severe tooth sensitivity or eventual tooth loss, to protect your oral health.
Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts
A bone graft is a procedure where your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone, so it has enough strength 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.
