At Norwood Dental Centre, we offer a variety of oral surgery treatments such as tooth extractions, wisdom tooth removal, biopsies, frenectomies, exposed partially erupted wisdom teeth and gum surgery.
Oral surgery refers to procedures that treat diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaw and oral and maxillofacial region. Our Winnipeg dentists offer a variety of oral surgery treatment options to care for your oral health.
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 the dentist.
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 overall health of your mouth.
Occasionally, the skin around the wisdom teeth gets infected. At Norwood Dental Centre, we use Laser Dentistry to remove the excess tissue and expose the wisdom tooth for better cleaning and infection prevention
A frenectomy is an oral surgical procedure that eliminates the presence of a frenum (a small flap of skin) in the mouth. A frenectomy may be needed to prevent gum disease, recession, spacing of your teeth or proper denture fit.
A biopsy is a sample of tissue taken from the mouth in order to examine it more closely. At Norwood Dental Centre, we use Laser Dentistry to perform biopsies.
Gum surgery is the removal of inflamed gum tissue in the treatment of gum disease, as well as the reshaping of gum and bone tissues during crown lengthening procedures. At Norwood Dental Centre, we use Laser Dentistry to perform gum surgery.
