What Can Be Treated?
Minor dental surgery covers a variety of procedures, including:
- Wisdom teeth removal – Sometimes wisdom teeth don’t emerge from the gum in proper alignment, or will become trapped (or ‘impacted) within the gum as they are trying to emerge. This causes pain, swelling and infection of the gums, and can even lead to permanent damage of the teeth, gums and bone, making surgical removal necessary.
- Dental implants – These are metal posts that are surgically anchored in the jawbone, acting as a stable frame for new artificial teeth to be securely attached to. This minor dental surgery may be required when a tooth is lost due to accident, trauma or infection, or as an alternative to dentures and bridges.
- Root canals – A root canal may be necessary when a tooth is seriously infected or decayed. It involves removing the infected tooth pulp (and sometimes the nerve) and sealing off the tooth to prevent future problems.
