Our dentists can perform a variety of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and help preserve your oral health.
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.
Our Sheppard Yorkland dentists always prefer to use the least invasive treatment possible to address a given dental problem. However, in some cases, less invasive treatment options are simply not sufficient and oral surgery is required.

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Our dentists place dental implants as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and assist in restoring your smile. A dental implant, when combined with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
A frenectomy procedure to eliminate a problematic frenum, 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.
Although our team believes that 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 as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, it may need to be extracted by your dentist.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a typical adult mouth. If your wisdom teeth are causing pain or problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
