Our Oral Surgery Procedures

1. Surgical Tooth Extractions: Sometimes, tooth extraction becomes necessary due to various reasons such as severe decay, infection, or crowding. Our oral surgeon performs tooth extractions with precision and care, ensuring minimal discomfort and optimal healing for our patients.

2. Wisdom Teeth Removal: Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, often require extraction due to issues such as impaction, crowding, or infection.

3. Bone Grafting: Bone grafting is a common procedure used to augment and strengthen the jawbone, particularly in preparation for dental implant placement. Restoring the necessary bone volume for successful implant placement and long-term stability.

4. Sinus Lift: A sinus lift, or sinus augmentation, is a surgical procedure performed to increase the bone height in the upper jaw, particularly in the posterior region, where the bone may be insufficient due to the presence of the maxillary sinus. Our skilled oral surgeon is adept at performing sinus lift procedures, creating the ideal foundation for dental implant placement and restoring function and aesthetics to the smile.

Oral Surgery FAQ'S

 Your dentist or oral surgeon will evaluate your oral health and recommend oral surgery if necessary. Common signs that may indicate a need for oral surgery include persistent tooth pain, impacted wisdom teeth, jaw misalignment, facial trauma, or the need for dental implants to replace missing teeth.

Oral surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area being treated and minimises discomfort during the procedure. After the procedure, patients may experience some soreness or swelling, but pain can usually be managed with over-the-counter or prescription medications as recommended by the oral surgeon.

 Recovery time varies depending on the type of oral surgery performed and individual factors such as overall health and healing ability. In general, most patients can expect some degree of swelling, discomfort, and limited jaw movement immediately following surgery. Full recovery typically takes a few days to a few weeks, during which time patients are advised to follow post-operative instructions provided by their oral surgeon, including rest, proper oral hygiene, and avoiding certain foods and activities that may impede healing.

 Like any surgical procedure, oral surgery carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, nerve damage, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. However, these risks are rare and can be minimised by  following pre- and post-operative instructions carefully, and maintaining good oral hygiene.
