The dentists at Spencer Dentistry have extensive experience performing oral surgery procedures for patients of all ages. Regardless of what your specific needs are, it’s our goal to ensure that any oral surgery appointment is quick, efficient, and safe as possible for all of our patients.
Here are two types of oral surgery that we perform regularly:
It may be determined that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed. Others may have advanced gum disease or may be broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted wisdom teeth) or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
While this can be a stressful event, we strive to make our patients as comfortable and pain-free as possible. We will always ensure excellent anaesthesia before we begin any procedure, and we check in with our patients often to confirm an informed and comfortable appointment.
Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 16 and 25 at the back of the mouth. Often they erupt in an unfavourable position and get stuck or “impacted” trying to come in, creating a condition known as “pericoronitis”. This is an uncomfortable inflammation of the gum tissue around an impacted wisdom tooth. These wisdom teeth can often grow unnoticed until they suddenly start to cause issues in the mouth. During your visit, our dentists will use a panoramic view of your mouth to analyze the position of your wisdom teeth and discuss whether they will need removal.
