Royal York Dental provides a range of oral surgery procedures for patients requiring complex extractions, or sinus lifts.
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral surgery includes treatment of injuries, diseases and defects related to the teeth, gums, jaw, head, or face. It refers to any procedure, such as tooth extractions and sinus lifts, that involves cutting into or removing tissue from the mouth.
There are a variety of reasons that you may need have a tooth removed. In any case where bone or gum tissue is deficient or diseased, we can remove and replace these tissues to enhance both your health, and the aesthetics of your smile.
Some of the reasons a tooth may need to be extracted include:
- crowding other teeth, bridges, etc.
- partially erupted teeth
- damage to other teeth
- causing jaw damage
- advanced tooth decay
- cyst formation around new teeth
- infected gums
- sinus problems
- presence of cavities
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth are generally the last to emerge from your mouth. They can start showing around the ages of 18-20, but every person is different.
Depending on the way your wisdom teeth are growing, you may need to have them extracted.
Sinus lifts are performed for patients who require extra bone be added to the upper jaws in the molar and premolar areas.
A sinus lift is a surgical procedure to replace lost bone in the upper jaw, usually by the molars.
You might need a sinus lift if you have experienced:
- Bone loss through periodontal (gum) disease
- Long term tooth loss
