We provide a range of other procedures and services to our patients including:

Sinus Lifts

In cases where there is insufficient bone density or spacing in the upper jaw, we can perform sinus lift surgery. During treatment, we can lift the sinus membrane and place harvested or donated bone between the sinuses and upper jaw. This process promotes bone regeneration at the site of a missing tooth and can restore your candidacy for dental implants. 

Bone Graft

After tooth loss, jawbone tissue can begin to degenerate. This process can lead to structural changes, pain, and shifting teeth. It can also prevent you from qualifying for dental implants. To renew your eligibility for treatment, we provide bone grafting.

During this procedure, we can transplant tissue from another area of your body, or place synthetic material into an empty tooth socket. This serves to promote jawbone regeneration and helps to create a strong foundation for dental implants.


A dental implant is a prosthetic or artificial tooth root that is surgically placed in the jawbone to hold a crown, bridge, or denture. Implants are made of biocompatible titanium. Over time, these materials naturally fuse with the jawbone, so the implant becomes part of your anatomy. At the end of implant treatment, your prosthetic teeth will be just as secure and usable as your natural teeth.


A frenectomy is a simple surgical procedure performed to release the connection of the frenum, a connective muscle between two tissues.

There are two types of oral frenectomies that are frequently performed on both adults and children for a variety of reasons:

  • A Labial Frenectomy is performed on the tissue that connects the lip to the gums. This may be performed on children or adults to aid with orthodontic treatment or even help with the proper fitting for a denture or appliance.
  • A Lingual Frenectomy may also be referred to as the release of tongue-ties (ankyloglossia). This procedure is performed on the connective tissue under the tongue. The procedure is often performed on neonatal patients to assist with nursing or on toddlers or older patients who need the surgery to help correct speech issues caused by limited movement due to the frenum.

Canine Exposure and Bonding

Impacted teeth are teeth that are unable to move into the mouth. Upper canines are the most commonly impacted teeth in children.

How the procedure works:

  1. The impacted tooth is exposed through the gum.
  2. After finding the tooth, a gold chain is attached with temporary cement.
  3. The chain is attached to the bracket or wire. You will have some stitches that are dissolvable.
  4. The chain is activated by your orthodontist about 2 weeks after surgery.
  5. A rubber band is attached to the gold chain and the wire and the impacted canine is slowly pulled down into the mouth over several months.

Oral Pathology/Biopsies

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in colour. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer. The following can be signs at the beginning of a pathologic process or cancerous growth:

  • Reddish patches (erythroplasia) or whitish patches (leukoplakia) in the mouth.
  • A sore that fails to heal and bleeds easily.
  • A lump or thickening on the skin lining the inside of the mouth.
  • Chronic sore throat or hoarseness. Difficulty in chewing or swallowing.

We can evaluate your mouth for any changes and treat or biopsy any areas of concern.
