Oral Surgery

Comprehensive Treatment at Smyth Dental Centre

Our doctors have received training in oral surgery in order to provide you with more comprehensive care. We perform everything from simple extractions to extraction of wisdom teeth, periodontal surgery, and biopsies of suspicious lesions. If you need oral surgery, we want you to receive treatment from doctors with which you feel comfortable. At our Ottawa dental office we perform the following the procedures:

  • Wisdom Teeth Extractions
  • Extractions to Eliminate Crowding
  • Crown Lengthening (Gum Lifts)
  • Periodontal Surgery
  • Root canal surgery (Apicoectomy)

As part of your restorative or cosmetic treatment, we may recommend tooth extractions or crown lengthening. Extractions are necessary if a tooth is diseased beyond repair, impacted, or overcrowded. A crown lengthening involves exposing more of the natural tooth, so we can secure a crown, bridge, or partial, or for cosmetic reasons. We also perform oral surgery to treat advanced stages of gum disease.

Oral surgery is executed in a single office visit. To ensure your comfort, we practice sedation dentistry. If we find that a specialist would be better equipped to handle your case, we will refer you to a trusted colleague.

If you have any questions about oral surgery, or would like to schedule an appointment, call Smyth Dental Centre. We provide comprehensive care to residents of Ottawa and Gatineau.
