Oral Surgery, Perth-Andover Dentist

What is Oral Surgery?

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.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

While it's always preferable to save a natural tooth, 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.

We may also recommend removing wisdom teeth, the final molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. 

If the wisdom teeth are causing problems for your oral hygiene, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.

During a frenectomy procedure, your dentist eliminates a frenum, a small piece of tissue that connects your cheeks, tongue or lips to your gum area. The mouth has a total of seven frenal attachments. Two major frena (plural of frenum) in the mouth can often block normal oral function and may need to be released. 

Our dentists perform frenectomies for babies, children and adults when the frenum is restricting function, commonly referred to as tongue-tied, lip-tied or cheek-tied. The procedure is typically safe and fast-healing.
