We offer a wide selection of surgical procedures such as removal
of impacted wisdom teeth, apicectomies, crown lengthening,
frenectomies, soft tissue grafts, osseous surgery and gingivectomy.
Wisdom teeth commonly cause problems during late teens and
early twenties. If the space is limited at the back of the
mouth, the wisdom tooth may become jammed between the second
molar and the bone at the back of the jaw. A gum flap extends
over the crown of the tooth. Bacteria and food get stuck underneath
this flap. This causes inflammation and swelling. If the patient
can manage to clean under the flap, it may be possible to
avoid further problems. If all else fails it is advisable
to remove the offending tooth.
Surgical procedures are available for the prevention of recession
if the problem is picked up at an early stage.
