At Southwood Dental Centre, we offer a variety of oral surgery treatment options for our Winnipeg patients.
Oral surgery refers to surgical procedures that treat diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaw and oral and maxillofacial region.
While it is always preferable to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where this is not possible.
Sometimes as a result of decay, gum disease or injury such as those from sports, motor vehicle accidents, or work related mishaps, a tooth may be too badly damaged and will need to be removed by a general dentist dentist.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw bone to support a tooth replacement.
Your general dentist may surgically place a dental implant as part of the process to replace a missing tooth. Together, the implant and the tooth replacement look and act like a natural tooth.
Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that grow in some people between the ages of 17 and 25.
These teeth are not always functional, and can crowd the mouth or create problems for your oral hygiene. In these cases, we may recommend having the wisdom teeth extracted to help preserve the health of your mouth.
A root canal is a dental procedure where your general dentist removes infected pulp from the inside of a tooth.
Once the pulp is removed, your general dentist adds a filling, or covers it with a crown to restore the tooth's function. A root canal helps to relieve any pain or symptoms caused by the damage and prevents the need for an extraction.
