Dental Surgery in Calgary

Don’t let the word surgery intimidate you! Forget the hospital gowns, general anaesthesia, and days spent in recovery. Many dental procedures performed are considered oral surgery. We can perform most procedures for you in our office without the wait time. Simply schedule an appointment ! Our dental surgery services include:

tooth extractions

The most common form of oral surgery is tooth extractions. In most cases, this can be performed by one of our dentists in our office. Reasons for a tooth extraction may include:

  • Partially erupted or impacted wisdom teeth
  • Damaged teeth beyond restoration from tooth decay, trauma, or root fracture
  • Primary teeth that have failed to fall out and prevent the eruption of adult teeth
  • Orthodontic treatment plans sometimes require the removal of teeth for preferred results

corrective jaw surgery

Jaw surgery, or orthognathic surgery, is performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon. Reasons for jaw surgery may include:

  • TMJ or temporomandibular joint pain and dysfunction
  • Minor or major trauma
  • Teeth misalignment 
  • Grinding and clenching causing excessive tooth wear
  • Difficulty opening and closing the mouth while talking, eating, or chewing
  • Incorrect jaw position and un-proportioned facial appearance

dental implants

Dental implants are an alternative for missing teeth to provide stability for new or existing dentures. Performed by a dentist with a surgical background, the process of a dental implant varies based on the dentist and type of implant. The recovery is similar to that of a tooth extraction with normal eating patterns returning within a week. 

Disease Detection and Treatment

Our dentist is highly trained in detecting oral cancer, where the signs can often go unnoticed. If something suspicious is discovered in your mouth, face, jaw, or neck area, a biopsy may be performed for further diagnosis. You may be referred for the biopsy or it may be performed by your general dentist. Oral surgery is often used as a form of treatment for oral cancer.

restorative dentistry

If you suffer from a broken or missing tooth, our crowns and bridges will bring your teeth back to a happy and healthy smile.
