Our Oral Surgery Services
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 use the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem, in some cases, less invasive treatment options are simply not sufficient and oral surgery is required.
If a tooth is too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, it may need to be removed by your dentist.
Wisdom teeth, the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth, may also cause problems for your oral hygiene and need to be removed to help preserve your oral health.
A frenectomy is a procedure to eliminate the presence of a frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue or lips to your gum area.
At iDental, we perform frenectomies for babies, children and adults when the frenum is restricting oral function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied.
A bone graft is a procedure where your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone, making it strong enough to support a dental implant.
After the graft, you need to wait a few months before having a dental implant placed. This gives the bone time to heal and grow new bone to support the implant.
