Oral surgery performed by our dentists at Kerhoulas Dental Streetsville in Mississauga treats dental abnormalities and alters your oral health.
Oral surgery at Kerhoulas Dental Streetsville involves the hard and soft tissue of the face, mouth, teeth, and jaws caused by injuries, defects, or disease.
We understand that the least invasive treatment options should be considered first, however, sometimes less invasive options aren't satisfactory and oral surgery may be required.
Dental implants are small titanium screws that function like your tooth's root. Our dentists place dental implants as a first step to replacing a missing tooth. A dental implant, in combination with a tooth replacement such as a crown, or bridge, can look and feel similar to a regular tooth.
A gum graft takes gum tissue from the roof of your mouth and transplants it onto problem areas. Gum grafts can repair receding gums or cover exposed tooth roots. The procedure can offer a reduction of the symptoms associated with those conditions like severe sensitivity or eventual tooth loss.
While it is more preferable to save a natural tooth, sometimes it's simply not possible. If your tooth is too severely damaged due to gum disease, decay, or injury, it may require extraction to preserve oral health.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to erupt in the back of a normal adult mouth. If the wisdom teeth are impacted and causing problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help.
A frenectomy procedure is performed to remove the frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue, or lips to your gum area. Our dentists perform frenectomies for adults, children, and even babies where the frenum is restricting function, known as tongue-tied, lip-tied, or cheek-tied.
Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts
A bone graft is a procedure where your dentist strengthens your jaw bone to allow it 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.
