At Valley Centre Dental Clinic in Whitecourt, our dentists perform a variety of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and improve your oral health.
What is Oral Surgery?
Dentists who practice oral surgery diagnose and surgically treat diseases, defects and injuries 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.
While we always prefer 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, your dentist may need to remove it. Your dentist can review tooth replacement options with you, such as dental crowns, bridges or implants.
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 hygiene, causing crowding or not growing in properly, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
A frenectomy procedure removes a frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your lips, cheeks or tongue to your gum area.
Our dentists perform frenectomies for babies, children and adults when the frenum is restricting function, typically referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied.
This simple procedure can be performed at any age and will improve the patient's oral health, leaving them to enjoy smiling for years to come.
