What is Oral Surgery?

Defects, injuries and diseases involving hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws need the attention of your dentist, and to be diagnosed, then treated. 

While we strive to use the least invasive treatment option for any given dental issue, in some cases less invasive treatment options would prove insufficient, and oral surgery is needed. 

At Pickering Village Dental, oral surgery services – including dental implants, tooth extractions, wisdom tooth removal, bone grafts, and sinus lifts – are provided by our team of General Dentists.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small titanium screws that function similarly to natural tooth roots. Dental implants are placed as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and restore your smile. Together with a tooth replacement such as a dental bridge or crown, a dental implant looks and feels much like a natural tooth.

Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts

During a bone graft procedure, your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone, strengthening it so it can 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, so a dental implant can be effectively placed. 

Tooth Extractions

While we prefer to save a natural tooth, in some cases, this won't be impossible. 

If a tooth is damaged as a result of injury, gum disease or decay, it may need to be removed by your dentist.

If required, we offer sedation for patients including nitrous oxide gas (aka “laughing gas”) and moderate sedation where a sedation medication is taken orally with a registered nurse monitoring your appointment (you are awake but not as aware of the procedure).

Wisdom Tooth Removal

This final set of molars emerges in the back corners of a normal adult mouth, and may cause problems for your oral hygiene. They can sometimes grow in the wrong positions, or there may simply not be enough room for them in the mouth. They may also become impacted or not erupt fully.

If this is the case for you, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health. Before the tooth is extracted, the area surrounding it will be numbed with an injectable or topical anesthetic for your comfort.
