Our dentists can perform everything from extractions to sinus lifts to help you keep your smile healthy.
Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of your surrounding teeth and gums.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient's late teenage years or early twenties. Immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. If your child's wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.
If you're getting dental implants in your upper jaw, you may need a sinus lift surgical procedure first. During this procedure, our oral surgery team will add new bone between your jaw and maxillary sinuses. In order to make room for this bone, your sinus membrane is moved upward. A successful sinus lift will help create healthy bone mass to support dental implants.
Soft Tissue Surgical Procedures
At our Surrey dentistry office, we use our Odyssey Diode Dental Laser to perform a variety of soft tissue surgical procedures. This modern dental technology facilitates quicker, more comfortable healing as well as cosmetic sculpting of the gum line.
Some of the dental procedures Dr. Bhatha, General Dentist, performs using the dental laser are:
- Reducing oral bacteria and other flora
- Recontouring interproximal tissue
- Soft tissue debridement
- Reducing hyperplasia
- Healing for split lips
- Treating inflammation around implants
- Incising and draining abscesses
- Recovering dental implants
- Troughing for impressions
- Crown lengthening
