Correcting issues and treating smiles with oral and maxillofacial surgery
Oral surgery covers any medical procedure that is performed on the mouth, including any extractions and biopsies. We can carry out most maxillofacial and mouth related surgeries at our practice.
For teeth with extensive damage, the best thing to do is remove it to relieve any pain and discomfort that it’s causing. Modern dentistry presents many great ways to replace missing teeth, including bridges, dentures and implants.
One of the most common types of extraction involves removing wisdom teeth. These large molars start to grow during the late teens onwards and sometimes there isn’t enough room in the mouth for them to properly grow, causing them to become impacted.
For cases of overcrowding, we may need to remove some teeth to allow space for the other teeth to move. This is common for children benefiting from orthodontic treatment and need to have bite issues corrected.
Soft tissue surgery
Oral surgery also covers any medical procedure carried out on the gums, cheeks and tongue. We can remove any lumps and bumps, including biopsies for abnormalities.
