What is Dental Surgery (Oral Surgery)?
Dental surgery is any number of medical procedures that involve the teeth and jaw. Most commonly procedures are extraction (including wisdom teeth), reconstructive surgery and placing dental implants.
Why would I need dental surgery?
The following are the most typical reasons for dental surgery:
- A tooth can no longer be restored or saved
- The tooth is not functional or cannot be cleaned
- The patient prefers to extract the tooth
Your appointment at our practice
We can remove or extract the problem tooth under local anaesthetic. This will also require a consultation/discussion before the extraction. An x-ray is taken to diagnose the issue. Teeth can be extracted on the same day if necessary.
After your extraction we can provide extra gauze, pain killers or antibiotics for any infections. This is to ensure your comfort and make healing as trouble free as possible.
Wisdom teeth extraction
We can also provide extractions of straight-forward wisdom teeth cases under local anaesthetic. But for more difficult wisdom teeth, patients often prefer to see a specialist or be ‘put to sleep ‘in a hospital. We can arrange that very easily for you.
