Oral Procedures at Glen Abbey Dental
At our Oakville practice, our dentalhouse team will offer teeth extractions, bone and gum grafting, and sinus lift services to ensure your mouth and gums are healthy.
If you are suffering from a damaged or dying tooth, you may need a tooth extraction. 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.
You may require a tooth to be extracted if you have any of the following symptoms:
- 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
Bone and Gum Grafting
Certain procedures, such as dental implants, are a great option to correct your smile, but may require bone grafting services to ensure the jawbone is able to support the implant. If you are considering dental implants, our dentists can offer bone grafting services to ensure your jawbone has enough support for a successful procedure.
Our team can also offer gum grafting to correct issues with your gums.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN BONE AUGMENTATION?
Bone grafting is a treatment that adds bone or other materials to the required area.
The area will take several months to recover and fuse with your existing jawbone. Once the area is healed, your dentist can then place the implants in your mouth.
Sinus lifts involves adding extra bone to the upper jaw to replace lost bone.
At dentalhouse Glen Abbey, we can treat patients with sinus lifts to improve the structure of their oral cavity and health.
Periodontal (gum) disease, aging or long term teeth loss are all major causes of bone issues, and may cause you to require a sinus lift.
