At Lord Dufferin Dental Centre we have an in office oral surgeon who is here to help patients with procedures that are not done at all dental practices, and need to be performed by a specialist.
Some dental surgeries that Dr. Abouzgia performs include:
Extractions are done when the tooth is infected, severely decayed, or even when there is crowding in the mouth to make more room (for example wisdom teeth). At Lord Dufferin Dental we have an Oral Surgeon in office that is here to help with this procedure. We do offer regular freezing, nitrous, or even general anesthetic to make this experience as comfortable as possible. Once treatment is completed we send our patients home with a post operative form with all the do’s and don’ts after extractions, and be sure to give our patients a care call the next morning to see how they are feeling. If you are in need of any extractions be sure to contact us at 519-938-9500.
Dental implants are titanium posts that resemble the tooth’s root. Implants are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. The implant then allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or even bridges into that area.
The benefits of implants are that they don’t come loose like dentures can. Implants also benefit oral health because they do not get anchored to other teeth like bridges do.
The perfect candidate for an implant must have healthy gums, and adequate bone level to support the implant. If there is not an adequate amount of bone (to thin, or too soft) our Oral Surgeon Dr. Abouzgia would need to perform a bone graft. He also performs sinus lifts if there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw, and the sinuses are too close to the jaw.
If you need any of these procedures done at our dental clinic in Orangeville, please do not hesitate to contact us at 519-938-9500 and schedule your consultation.
Do not touch the socket from which a tooth has been extracted. The blood clot which forms is nature’s way of healing; don’t disturb it.
If you need any of these procedures done, or require assistance post surgery, please do not hesitate to contact us at 519-938-9500 and schedule your consultation.
