Oral surgery

The most common procedure carried out by our specialists in oral surgery are dental extractions. These dental procedures are usually carried out under a local anaesthetic  but in the cases of very nervous or anxious patients, it is possible to carry out the procedure under a general anaesthetic.

The extraction of a tooth may be required if the tooth has become badly decayed or injured through trauma and where dental restoration is not an option. Extractions may also be used in conjunction to orthodontic treatment, making room for other teeth to grow or move into place, or as part of the preparation process for dental implants.
