Oral Surgery in Saskatoon

Oral surgery is a specialized branch of dentistry that deals with diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, face and the hard and soft tissues of the oral and maxillofacial region. It includes dental implants, maxillofacial surgery, orthognathic surgery, corrective jaw surgery, bone grafting procedures and reconstructive surgery after an injury.

At Willowgreen Dental in Saskatoon, our experienced dentists provide knowledgeable care for patients requiring surgical procedures. Our goal is to help you achieve optimal oral health and improve your overall well-being.

Oral Surgery Services We Provide

Tooth Extractions

Tooth extractions are one of the most common dental surgeries performed. This procedure involves removing a tooth that is damaged, decayed or causing problems for surrounding teeth.

Our practice uses modern techniques and offers optional nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas) to make the extraction process as comfortable and painless as possible for our patients. This is especially helpful for children or patients with dental anxiety. Our team will also give detailed aftercare instructions to promote healing and prevent complications.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, typically appear in your late teens or early twenties. These teeth often cause problems such as impaction (when other teeth block the tooth), overcrowding (which can lead to pain), infection and shifting of surrounding teeth.

Our experienced dentists at Willowgreen Dental can assess your wisdom teeth and determine if they need to be removed. During your wisdom tooth extraction, you can expect the following procedures:

  • Anesthesia. To ensure your comfort, we will administer local anesthesia or sedation.
  • Incision. We will make an incision in the gum tissue around the tooth to expose the tooth and bone.
  • Removal. The tooth may need to be divided into smaller pieces for easier removal. Any remaining debris or infection will also be cleared out.
  • Stitching. We will clean the area once we remove the tooth and stitch up the incision to promote healing.
  • Aftercare. After the effects of the anesthesia wear off, pain and swelling may occur, which is normal. We will provide instructions on how to care for the extraction site and manage any discomfort. We will also prescribe medications for pain control if necessary. The healing time may take a few days to a week, during which you should avoid strenuous activities and stick to soft foods.
  • Follow-up. We may schedule a follow-up appointment to check your healing progress and remove any stitches if needed.
