The Ottawa dentists at Green Bank Hunt Club perform a comprehensive suite of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and improve their patient's oral health.
Any surgical treatment follows from the diagnoses of diseases, injuries, and defects in the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth, and jaws all fall under the umbrella of oral surgery.
Less invasive measures of treatment are obviously preferred, but when these measures prove insufficient the team at Green Bank Hunt Club are prepared to perform oral surgery to repair any damage and get our patients' oral hygiene back on track.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is an artificial replacement for a tooth's root. Dental implants as part of the process to replace missing teeth and restore your smile practiced by our Ottawa dentists. A dental implant, together with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
A gum graft is a transplant where gum tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth and moved to another area of the gums. Gum grafts can help to cover exposed tooth roots, repair receding gums, and reduce associated symptoms such as severe tooth sensitivity or eventual tooth loss, protecting the future of your smile.
We work hard to preserve our patients' natural teeth, but when that proves untenable because 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 Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. As many know, complications related to wisdom teeth often have a profoundly negative impact on one's oral health. For your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
A frenectomy is a procedure that eliminates a frenum. A frenum is a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue or lips to your gum area. Our dentists perform frenectomies for babies, children and adults when the frenum is restricting function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied.
Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts
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. 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.
