Oral surgery deals with the diagnosis, treatment and management of pathology of the mouth and jaws that requires surgical intervention. This often involves removing problematic teeth (such as wisdom teeth), removing cysts or gum growths for biopsy and exposing un-erupted teeth to help orthodontic tooth alignment.
Certain dental problems require more complicated procedures such as tooth extraction, root canal surgery, removal of buried roots, treatment of jaw cysts, mouth ulcers or wisdom tooth removal. Our oral surgeon is specially trained in the treatment of more complex dental needs including the extraction of difficult teeth, bone grafting or sinus lifting.
Oral surgery can be used in the treatment of children, teenagers and adults alike, and is also suitable for the management of medically complex patients as well as patients who are anxious about dental surgery.
