What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery includes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws.
While we always recommend the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem, in some cases, less invasive treatment options simply won't suffice and oral surgery becomes necessary.
At Barrhaven South Dentistry we perform tooth extraction procedures, including wisdom tooth removal.
While it's always preferable to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where it's not possible. If a tooth is too badly damaged due to decay, gum disease or injury, it may need to be removed by your dentist to restore your oral health.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. If the wisdom teeth are causing problems for your oral health, such as growing in crooked, your dentist may remove them.
