Dental surgery procedures

We offer a range of dental surgeries and treatments depending on the type of problem you are having with your teeth…

Multiple extraction of teeth

Multiple teeth are usually extracted from a patient if they have extensive and severe periodontal disease (gum disease). Having them removed at the same time is often the best option to minimise stress on the patient and to save time.

Full dental clearance

This is the procedure of removing and replacing all of a person’s teeth, perhaps as a result of periodontal disease or abscessed teeth. This can make a big improvement to a person’s oral health and general health.

Lower dental clearance

This is the removal and replacement of all of a person’s natural teeth in their lower jaw.

Surgical removal of an impacted tooth

If a tooth fails to emerge, or only partially emerges, it is considered to be impacted. As this can lead to the misalignment of the bite, and possible trapping of debris – and therefore gum inflammation – these are often surgically removed. An incision is made in the gum and the tooth is removed with any bone that is in the way.

Impacted wisdom tooth removal

Wisdom teeth are the most common teeth to become stuck, or impacted, in the gum tissue or bone. An incision is made in the gum, and the tooth, plus any bone, is removed. The incision is then sutured up.

Surgical removal of retained root

Retained root remains in the jaw after tooth extraction and is sometimes used as a support to overdentures. If it is causing pain, it may be removed via surgery to ease pain and prevent infection.

Tooth removal surgery

Teeth can be removed from the mouth for a number of reasons, including tooth decay, cosmetic reasons, trauma or impaction. This is done under local anaesthetic and sometimes under general anaesthetic.

Upper dental clearance

This is the removal and replacement of all of a person’s natural teeth in their upper jaw.
