What is Maxillo-Facial Surgery?
Maxillo-facial surgery includes the diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases, injuries and defects of the hard and soft tissues of the face, mouth, teeth and jaws.
While we always use the least invasive treatment possible for a given dental problem, in some cases, less invasive treatment options are simply not sufficient and oral surgery is required.
To replace one or more missing teeth, different solutions are available to you. One of them is to use dental implants. Comfortable and natural-looking, dental implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth.
The gums protect our teeth and the bone. Sometimes this gum becomes fragile, retracts and causes problems such as bleeding, dental hypersensitivity, loosening and then loss of one or more teeth. With a transplant, it is possible to reduce or even eliminate these symptoms.
Severe decay, bruxism, cancer, an accident, or an illness can lead to the extraction of one or more teeth. The tooth may then be too damaged to be saved. In this case, your dentist will recommend that you remove it.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
These teeth, located at the back of your dental arch, very often lack space to position themselves correctly. This is why they pierce the gum only partially, if at all, and can cause complications.
A frenectomy procedure to eliminate a frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue, or lips to your gum area. Our dentists perform frenectomies for babies, children, and adults when the frenum is restricting function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied.
Bone Grafts & Sinus Lifts
A bone graft is a procedure where your dentist adds bone tissue to your jaw bone, making it strong enough to support a dental implant. A sinus lift is a type of bone graft where your dentist adds bone material to the upper back jaw to raise and increase the amount of bone in the sinus area to place a dental implant.
