Tooth Removal Can Help Prevent Long-Term Issues
Oral surgery, also known as oral and maxillofacial surgery, is a surgical process focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases, injuries, and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws, and the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. This can include procedures that we perform at our London, Ontario dental clinic such as tooth extractions, wisdom teeth removal, bone grafts, and more. A tooth may need to be removed for a number of reasons such as overcrowding issues, decay/infection, or experiencing trauma. Regardless of the reason, the tooth is removed in order to improve your dental health and overall well-being.

Why You May Require Oral Surgery

Oral surgery may be necessary for a variety of reasons which we’ll discuss during your consultation appointment. Some popular reasons include:

Improve Functionality

Misaligned teeth can cause issues with biting, chewing and digesting food. Long-term issues may include decay or gum disease.

Impacted Teeth

An impacted tooth can cause decay, infection, and threaten the health of surrounding teeth, leading to further complications with pain, structure and chewing abilities.


A root canal may not be able to save a severely infected tooth, therefore, it may need to be removed and replaced with a dental implant.


Trauma to your teeth can negatively impact your oral health, especially if major cracks or chips are present. This creates room for infection to set in and should be dealt with promptly.

Let's Discuss The Best Treatment Option For You

Our dentist in London, Ontario can diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions and perform certain surgeries in our office.

Tooth Extractions

Whether you're experiencing tooth decay, gum disease, overcrowding issues, or have suffered facial trauma, extraction may be necessary to prevent further complications.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the last of our molars to come in, typically between the ages of 17-25. They can cause problems such as impaction, infection and pain. We'll monitor them closely and determine the best time to remove them.

Gum/Bone Grafts

Gum and bone grafts are necessary if you're experiencing gum recession or bone loss. Once grafts heal, tooth replacement options can be discussed.

Root Canal Therapy

If you have an infected tooth, root canal therapy involves removing the infected pulp and filling it with composite resin material to restore strength. If the infection is too severe, the tooth will need to be extracted.
