We perform dental extractions only in situation where less invasive treatment wou not be effective. This can happen for a number of reasons – extensive decay, severe fracture, or crowding of the surrounding teeth (as if often the case with wisdom teeth) are all examples of when an extraction may be necessary.
When gum disease becomes advanced, gum surgery may be necessary. We may also perform gum therapy when tissue has over grown a tooth, or when you have what's called a "gummy smile". The procedure itself will be different in each situation, but with the help of our laser, they all relatively quick, and cause a very minimal amount of discomfort.
If your periodontitis is advanced, we refer patients to the Periodontists at Proactice Periodontics in Burnaby for specialized treatment and management of periodontal (gum) disease.
