Dentistry has come a long way over the years in helping patients regain their oral health. One of the most significant advances made in dentistry is the prevalence of oral surgery we take schedule at our Woodbridge dental clinic. Before specific surgical procedures were developed, many patients found it extremely difficult to enjoy healthy teeth and gums. Today, the dental profession has specialised dentistry fields, from root canal dentists to wisdom teeth removal dentists. Today the dentists at our Woodbridge dental clinic can help patients improve their smiles and overall health by providing several surgical options. Here is additional information on some of the most common types of oral surgery procedures we see at Mackenzie Dental Centre.
A root canal treatment is a very popular oral surgery performed at our Woodbridge dental clinic. Root canals are one of the most types of dental surgeries. This surgery, performed by an experienced root canal dentist, can only be done with anaesthesia. The success rates of this oral surgery are high when followed up by regular checkups and cleaning appointments. A root canal procedure usually includes drilling, filling, and sealing the tooth to remove all infection while reshaping it to resemble its original form.
A common oral surgery is dental implants. Dental implants are used to replace a missing tooth. The implant is surgically placed to take the place of the missing root and be received by natural bone tissue. A dental implant can be used as an anchor for various dentures, help retain these prostheses, and provide stable sites for replacement teeth such as crowns or bridges.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth removal is another popular oral surgery we perform at our dental clinic. Patients of this procedure are usually between the ages of 17-25 and have healthy gums, jaws and teeth. Removal of wisdom teeth is necessary because they often don’t fully develop and remain trapped underneath the gums. They can cause serious problems if they continue to grow inwards or sideways, resulting in infection and/or malocclusions. Wisdom teeth removal surgery is done in a single day, under general anaesthesia and with mild sedation.
Dental crowns and bridges are another popular oral surgery performed at our dental clinic. Many patients facing missing teeth also experience sensitivity and pain. It might be time for a new porcelain dental crown or dental bridge. Dentists will begin by preparing the teeth for the crown or bridge placed later. Then, the dentist will make molds of both the top and bottom teeth to make crowns or a bridge that fits perfectly. The dentist will next prepare the tooth roots to place the permanent porcelain crown (on top) and metal framework (on bottom).
