Oral surgery

What we do

We offer a wide range of surgery, including tooth extractions, wisdom tooth surgery, biopsies, root surgery, pre-orthodontic surgery and the management of abnormal changes in mouth tissues.

We specialise in:

  • Assessing and managing patients with complicated wisdom tooth problems.
  • Patients with a history of bisphonphonate treatment, which is used to strengthen bone in patients with osteoporosis and some forms of cancer.
  • Facial vascular lesions, which are usually seen as redish/purple patches.
  • Cryosurgery, a type of surgery that freezes abnormal tissue.
  • Laser surgery.
  • Apical surgery, where the end of the root of the tooth is operated on and which is usually necessary when a root filling fails
  • Patients whose medical conditions may affect or be affected by dental treatment.

Preparing for your appointment

One of our team will assess you before you come to your treatment appointment. At this appointment, we will arrange for you to have any investigations you need, such as x-rays and blood tests. Please bring a list of your current medications to your assessment appointment so we know what you are taking.

If you are having treatment under local anaesthetic or intravenous sedation, you do not need to fast for your appointment. Please make sure you have a light meal before attending your treatment appointment.

If you are having intravenous sedation, please follow the instructions we give you carefully. You must bring an escort with you when you have your surgery. After your treatment, you and your escort should return straight home, ideally by car.

For more information, please read our leaflet, Intravenous sedation for dental treatment.
