Oral surgery is a field of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions affecting the teeth, gums and jaw. It is for cases that require more invasive levels of treatment than is common. We provide oral surgery services to ensure you remain in safe hands during complex procedures.

Oral surgery procedures

Extractions are the most commonly performed type of oral surgery procedure. You may be referred to a specialist oral surgeon if your tooth is in an awkward position, the tooth is partially erupted or the tooth has developed at an abnormal angle. Teeth can usually be extracted using forceps, but more complex cases may require an incision in the gum to remove the tooth.

Wisdom tooth extraction is often carried out by oral surgeons in cases where the tooth is impacted or partially erupted. This procedure can be discussed with our dental team to make sure it is the right path for your particular case. Oral surgeons can also remove and drain cysts and take tissue samples where needed.
