Dr. William MacDonald Bio
He specializes in major and minor surgery such as tooth extraction (wisdom teeth), dental implants, orthognathic (jaw) surgery, cleft surgery and other oral surgery.
Teeth are extracted for many reasons. These can include severe decay, inadequate room in the jaws or fracture. Impacted wisdom teeth are probably the most common extractions.
Dental implants are titanium screws or cylinders placed in the jaw bone underneath the gum tissue to support artificial teeth where natural teeth are missing. These screws or cylinders will fuse or bond to your jaw bone. This then allows the foundation to anchor artificial teeth.
Orthodontic treatment or wearing of braces can usually correct malocclusions (the poor fitting together of the upper and lower teeth). However, when the two jaws are different in size, shape, or position, orthodontics alone cannot align the teeth for a better fit. Surgery then becomes necessary.
