At Boucher Levesque Maltais Dental Centre in Dieppe, our dentists perform a variety of oral surgery procedures to treat dental issues and improve your oral health.
What is Oral Surgery?
Oral 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.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root with the same function as that of a natural tooth. Our dentists place dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth and restore the appearance and function of your smile. Our clinic also offers prosthetic dental implants.
A gum graft, also called a gum recession, is a procedure that involves removing tissue from the patient's palate and then grafting it to the site of the loosening. This helps to cover exposed tooth roots and reduce associated symptoms like tooth sensitivity.
Minimally invasive dentistry
Our dentists favor minimally invasive reconstructive dentistry, thus preserving the natural structure of the tooth, its enamel, and a maximum of healthy tissue thanks to dental technologies. Minimally invasive dental procedures are generally more accepted by patients and provide a natural and harmonious result.
Sometimes a tooth can suffer damage such as gum disease, impact, or very advanced decay. The excessively damaged tooth cannot then be saved and will have to be removed.
A frenectomy is a minor surgical operation performed under local anesthesia, which involves cutting one of the brakes in the mouth, a lingual or labial frenulum located under the tongue and under the lips.
