ORAL SURGERY AT ANGLE HOUSE SPECIALIST DENTISTRY

To achieve beautifully straight teeth can sometimes require treatment beyond that of an orthodontic appliance. If your orthodontic issues are quite severe, such as the need for dental extractions, dental abscess removal, corrective jaw surgery or TMJ pain for example, it could be that you require oral surgery.

What is oral surgery?

Oral surgery is exactly what you probably think it is – surgery on your mouth. This surgery is conducted by a specialist oral surgeon who has specialist surgical skills to undertake often complex oral procedures. Oral surgeons will work closely with your orthodontist to ensure the best outcome from surgery is achieved.

Oral surgery procedures are carried out gently and quickly using local anaesthetic. For particularly complicated procedures or very anxious patients we offer sedation at Angle House Specialist Dentistry, which helps to relax patients and put them more at ease.

Do I need oral surgery?

If you suffer from or require any of the following procedures, you could benefit from having oral surgery.

Routine dental extractions: Removing a tooth is often a last resort when it comes to orthodontics, but for some patients there is simply no option but to have a tooth, or teeth, extracted in order to achieve the smile and healthy teeth they are hoping for. If we identify that you need a routine dental extraction, we will refer you to our specialist oral surgeon.

Complex extractions: Unfortunately, not all tooth extractions are simple. If some of your teeth present with special or more complex issues, or if a previous extraction has failed, then we may recommend oral surgery to ensure the complex extraction is done with the level of precision required.

Extraction of wisdom teeth: If the time has come for you to have your wisdom teeth removed (although not every patient needs to), or your wisdom teeth have become impacted, a specialist oral surgeon will be able to remove these teeth with a simple procedure under local anaesthetic.

Retained roots and un-erupted teeth: Sometimes, our teeth don’t grow as they should and more often than not the problem stems from the root of the tooth. If a tooth’s roots are buried or fractured, or your teeth is un-erupted, oral surgery could be a good option to resolve this orthodontic issue.

Other soft tissue surgery: If you have a frenectomy, which is when a muscular attachment appears between two tissues (in the case of oral health a frenectomy is commonly found as a piece of muscle attaching the inside of the top lip to the upper gum), then oral surgery can be beneficial in removing this.
