At Dr. Kerby Bruce and Associates in Charlottetown, 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. Our dentists restore dental implants as part of the process of replacing missing teeth. A dental implant, together with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
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 children and adults when the frenum is restricting function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied, or cheek-tied.
While 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 removed by your dentist.
Widsom 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, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
