dental extractions

Gentle and sympathetic approach to surgical removal of teeth and roots.

The utmost care is taken to make all of these procedures as comfortable and stress free as possible. The surgical procedures can be carried out under intravenous sedation which can make the experience relaxing and pain free.

Removal of Wisdom teeth

Many patients require the removal of one or more wisdom teeth as they often try to grow into the mouth and are “tight” for space leading to “Impaction”. This can cause pain and swelling and damage to adjacent teeth.

Correct diagnosis using advanced Digital X-ray technology (awaiting Tony's link)ensures accurate and safeĀ  managementĀ  in a safe, relaxing and pain free procedure using Conscious Sedation.

dental cysts

Certain infections, buried, unerupted teeth or other conditions can cause the formation of Dental Cysts. These can and should be removed by an Oral Surgeon as they can cause severe complications if ignored and not treated.

Surgical endodontics

Infections associated with the roots of teeth sometimes require a minor surgical procedure called an APICECTOMY. This is the removal of the tip of the root with any associated infection and placing of a seal over the end of the root.

An infection at the tip of the root spreads into the surrounding bone that supports the tooth and needs to be treatedĀ  initially by ROOTFILLING or RETREATMENT of the tooth. Often patients are unaware of the problem but there may be discomfort , episodes of swelling, gum boils or a bad taste.

Why do I need Treatment?

If left untreated infections can lead to recurrent episodes of pain and cause damage to other teeth and bone leading to potentially serious complications. The infections cannot be completely cured using antibiotics, but are often used as a temporary relief of symptoms before a surgical removal can be carried out.
