At All Smiles Dental Centre in Winnipeg, our dentists perform a variety of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and improve your oral health.
What is Oral Surgery?
At All Smiles Dental Centre, we diagnose and surgically treat injuries, diseases, and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, teeth, jaws, and mouth. This is known as oral surgery.
While we always use the least invasive treatment possible for any given dental issue, in some cases, less invasive treatment options are simply not sufficient and oral surgery is needed.
In these circumstances, you can trust our Winnipeg dentists to not only provide any oral surgery treatment you may need, but to explain the procedure and offer practical advice and guidance.
A dental implant is a tiny titanium rod used to replace the root of a missing tooth. Dental implants are placed as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and restore your smile. When paired with a tooth replacement such as a bridge or crown, a dental implant looks and feels very similar to a natural tooth.
During a gum graft, gum tissue is carefully transplanted from the roof of your mouth to another area of the gums. This procedure can help to cover and protect exposed root surfaces, reduce tooth sensitivity, repair receding gums, and more. A gum graft can preserve your oral health by preventing tooth loss.
When we extract a tooth, we carefully remove it from its socket in the bone. Extractions are a last resort; while we always prefer to save a natural tooth, sometimes this proves impossible.
A tooth may become too badly decayed or damaged, or may sustain injury or disease and need to be removed.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars to emerge in the back corners of a normal adult mouth.
If wisdom teeth are causing you pain, have become impacted or pose problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend having them removed.
A frenectomy procedure involves the removal of a frenum, a small piece of tissue joining your tongue, cheek, or lips to your gum area. Our dentists complete frenectomies for babies, children and adults if the frenum is restricting function.
The condition is known as tongue-tied, cheek-tied, or lip-tied. This safe, fast-healing procedure typically does not require anesthesia.
Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts
A bone graft is a procedure during which your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw. The procedure strengthens your jaw, restores areas where bone loss has occurred, or prepares the area for another dental procedure such as a dental implant.
A sinus lift is a type of bone graft. Bone material is added to the upper back jaw to increase the amount of bone in the sinus area so a dental implant may be placed.
