Our Oral Surgery Procedures
Our team has experience providing a wide range of oral surgery procedures from our Oakville dental office, including:
Wisdom Teeth Removals
Your wisdom teeth are the molars located at the very back of your mouth, on both your top and bottom jaw. Your wisdom teeth will typically come in during your late teens or early twenties.
For some people, wisdom teeth will grow in normally and will not require any surgery. However, for many individuals, a wisdom teeth extraction is a common oral surgery procedure that will have to happen at some point when they are a young adult.
Wisdom teeth removal typically becomes necessary if your wisdom teeth are impacted or are at risk of becoming impacted. This means that the teeth have not emerged through the jaw bone, or have broken into pieces and cannot be easily removed.
In either case, your oral surgeon will carefully remove your wisdom teeth to prevent the risk of future decay or infection. At Dr. Simon Pong Dentistry, we are experts in wisdom teeth removals and can provide a consultation with x-rays to let you know if this procedure will be necessary.
If you have a broken, damaged, or decaying tooth, there are a number of options for treatment before tooth extraction. These include filings, crowns, or other treatments such as bone grafts (see below).
In rare cases, these treatments will not be possible and your dentist will need to perform a tooth extraction. Usually, these extractions are only necessary when there is not enough room in your mouth to allow new teeth to grow in or to perform future orthodontic work to correct your smile or bite.
The team at Dr. Simon Pong can perform a range of procedures from routine to complicated tooth extractions, in a wide range of situations. If you are looking for a tooth extraction, schedule an examination with our team today to learn more about your options.
Dental Implant Placements | Bone Grafts
If you are missing one or more teeth, then a dental implant is a great option that can help improve your long-term dental health. Missing teeth are a serious issue that can cause your facial structure to change, create unnecessary pain, and lead to other health problems.
In some cases, a dental implant will not be possible without an additional bone graft procedure. This procedure is used to strengthen the material of your jaw bone to ensure that your future implant will be strong and stable after your surgery.
Dr. Simon Pong can assist with both dental implant placements and bone graft procedures to support your implant. Contact our team today to book a consultation and learn more about these procedures.
If your child or teen’s teeth have not emerged properly from the jaw and gums, then it is sometimes necessary for an orthodontic exposure to assist in the process. This type of oral surgery is designed to help bring impacted teeth into the correct position in the mouth.
Orthodontic exposures involve a range of techniques, from the removal of gum tissue to bonding the tooth to a neighbouring tooth. Dr. Simon Pong and his team have in-depth experience with orthodontic exposures and can help you understand what is involved in the procedure. Schedule an examination and consultation today to learn more about your options.
