ORAL SURGERY

Oral and maxillofacial surgery specializes in treating many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the oral (mouth) and maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. We offer the following oral surgery treatments.

Surgical extraction

Is a more complex procedure as opposed to simple extraction, which is used if a tooth may have broken off at the gum line or has not erupted in the mouth. The oral surgeon will make a small incision into your gum to surgically remove the broken tooth or impacted wisdom tooth.

Wisdom tooth removal

The wisdom teeth grow at the back of your gums and are the last teeth to come through, usually in your late teens or early twenties. Most people have four wisdom teeth, one in each corner. Wisdom teeth can sometimes emerge at an angle or get stuck and only emerge partially. Wisdom teeth that grow through in this way are known as impacted. Impacted wisdom teeth can be removed on the NHS. Your dentist may perform the procedure or may refer you to a dentist with a special interest or to a hospital’s oral and maxillofacial unit.

Jaw cyst removal

Jaw cysts are growths that tend to develop slowly and for many people, will only show up on an X-ray or scan during a dental appointment. Sometimes though they can get infected and painful or pose a threat to nearby teeth and need to be removed. Removing the cyst is usually a relatively straightforward operation that our specialist surgeons perform in both London, and Hungary.

Root Resection

Root resection is used to treat a dental problem when it is limited to a single root of a tooth that has multiple roots.
