At Dr. Tina Dorfman Family Dentist in Pointe Claire, our dentists perform a variety of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and improve 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.
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.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. At Dr. Tina Dorfman Family Dentist we can replace missing teeth with crowns and bridges as part of the dental implant process.
A gum graft is a procedure where gum tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth and transplanted onto another area of the gums. A gum graft can help to cover exposed tooth roots, repair receding gums, and reduce any associated symptoms such as severe tooth sensitivity or eventual tooth loss, to protect your oral health.
Wisdom Teeth & Extractions
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.
If the wisdom teeth are causing problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
A frenectomy procedure to eliminate a 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.
