At the St-Joseph Dental Health clinic in Gatineau, our dentist, Dr. Moustafa, is able to perform certain surgical operations for the teeth. Her practice includes wisdom tooth extraction and dental implant placement.
Extracting wisdom teeth is probably the most common oral surgery. They generally grow around the age of 20, and on average there are 3 or 4. Wisdom teeth can be problematic if the mouth is too small to grow properly, or if they grow crooked or partially.
The placement of dental implants requires the intervention of a dentist to surgically install the part that will replace the natural root of the tooth. Such implants represent permanent solutions to replace one or more missing teeth and preserve the integrity of the jawbone.
