We use the term “Oral Surgery” when we’re talking about surgical operations involving the oral cavity. The most common procedure that falls into the category of Oral Surgery is wisdom tooth removal, but there are many more surgeries that can be considered. Between the Periodontist, Oral Surgeon, and Endodontist, we’ve got you covered for surgeries including complex extractions, cyst removals, frenectomy, open and closed gum surgery, apiocoectomy, bichectomy, removal of mandibular tori (or torus) and many more.

When gum disease is more advanced, and the pockets are deep, it can be necessary to perform an open-quadrant gum surgery. This involves opening the gum, and cleaning down below the gumline, and performing follow up to ensure healing is taking place. Read more about periodontal surgeries and treatments here.
The series of images show a special case where a young patient presented with an issue with supernumerary teeth. One almost fully formed, and a smaller non-formed supernumerary. It was beginning to cause discomfort, and was close to causing damage to the permanent teeth in it’s proximity. Surgery was performed without any issues, and the patient was able to recover normally. Thankfully the chances of experiencing a supernumerary tooth are around 1%-2% of the population.
