Our Calgary general dentists may recommend oral surgery options, such as wisdom teeth extractions and dental implants in situations where less invasive treatment options could be ineffective. If you require an oral surgery, we'll be there for you each step of the way.
At Harker Chan Dentistry, our general dentists provide the oral surgeries including:
Third molars, commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, are typically the last four of 32 teeth to erupt in the mouth. Generally wisdom teeth appear between the ages of 17 to 25.
In most cases, inadequate space in the mouth does not allow the wisdom teeth to erupt properly and become fully functional. When this happens, we may recommend extracting the tooth.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots (usually made from titanium) and artificial teeth (crowns) that are surgically implanted on the upper and/or lower jaw bone.
If our dentists believe that a dental implant is right for you, we will gladly refer you to one of our partners in the Calgary community to schedule your procedure.
