Minor Oral Surgery
Extractions & infection control carried out with care
Sometimes treatment is needed that goes a little beyond normal dentistry and moves into the area of minor oral surgery. These procedures are carried out in our standard surgery under a local anaesthetic following the most up to date methods and techniques.
Probably the most common of these procedures is wisdom tooth removal. For many people these teeth at the back of our mouths emerge normally but, in some cases, they become impacted or only partially come out. This can cause a number of issues including pain and the risk of infection. Sometimes we take the decision to extract the tooth in question to prevent further problems.
The treatment of abscesses and root infections also fall under the heading of minor oral surgery and your dentist will be able to advise you if you ever need treatment for conditions such as these.
While this kind of treatment is minor it is more serious and involved that “standard” dentistry, so you can rest assured that we will pay just as much attention to your aftercare as we will to the treatment itself.
