Surgery for Dental Problems
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.
Our Cambridge dental team offers a complete range of oral surgery treatment options. These services are designed to help improve your oral function, and as a result, your quality of life.
While saving a natural tooth is always preferable, there are some cases where it's not possible. If a tooth is too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, it may need to be removed by your dentist.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that grow in the back corners of an adult mouth. If the wisdom teeth cause problems with your oral hygiene, the dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your smile.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a natural tooth root. Our dentists place dental implants as part of the process to replace a missing tooth and assist in restoring your smile. The dental implant procedure requires the implant and a tooth replacement. A dental implant, together with a tooth replacement such as a crown or bridge, looks and feels much like a natural tooth.
